ConMet eMobility and Carrier Transicold, pioneers in zero-emission transport refrigeration technology, and Sysco Corp., the global leader in food service distribution, have recently entered into an agreement to supply Sysco with new zero-emission refrigeration systems as part of a commercial evaluation program.
The new system combines the ConMet PreSet Plus eHub with Carrier’s Vector refrigeration unit to provide fleets a zero-emission solution for commercial trailers. Regenerative energy created by the lightweight, modular, in-wheel motors of the eHub system power the electric Vector refrigeration unit. An initial delivery of this advanced system took place earlier this year at Sysco’s Riverside, CA operating site.
Commenting on the association, Neil Russell, Sysco’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Chief Communications Officer, said, “This is an important step in advancing our overall emission reduction strategy, while helping our industry move toward more sustainable transportation solutions and ensuring critical access to reliable temperature control technology.”
This collaboration aligns with the visions for each of the companies, which are working toward a more sustainable future. ConMet is committed to sustainable manufacturing while developing innovative products that help customers meet their own environmental goals. Carrier offers a comprehensive, integrated and growing suite of sustainability solutions and services that allow customers to reach their energy and decarbonization goals. Sysco has set a goal to reduce emissions by 2030, which includes the electrification of 35% of its US-based fleet.
