A ColdCube Case


Melbourne, Australia  March 19th, 2012 --Refrigerated transport expert Thermo King will launch its new ColdCube Container at the upcoming 2012 International Truck Trailer and Equipment Show in Melbourne.

       According to Thermo King, the new ColdCube technology will take refrigerated storage to a new level, allowing for portable and adaptable cooling and freezing as well as a variety of additional applications. 

       “What makes ColdCube so special is their versatility. Just slide one into your existing van or trailer and plug it in,” says Ken Adams, Thermo King Australia’s Regional Parts & Product Manager. 

      “No intrusive, expensive van insulation or permanent refrigeration is required.”

       The multi voltage options make ColdCube ideal for almost any application. This containment unit will harness anything from 12 Volt, 24 Volt to as high as 240 Volt so long as the user powers it up and sets the temperature. 

       Heavily insulated and up to five inches thick, the European designed and manufactured units are constructed of tough UV stabilized food grade molded polyethylene and come in three different sizes with six options available depending on the business application.

       The ColdCube container is also equipped with a digital interface system allowing users to view the temperature status without having to open the container and giving the option of keying in a temperature via its set point controls.

        Sydney-based haulage company Hunter and Northern Logistics (HNL) has already embraced the new Thermo King technology. Supplying premium beer and wine to restaurants and clubs all over New South Wales’ state capital means that the company needs to deliver the precious freight “ready to drink” – and the ColdCube is the ideal tool to achieve that, according to HNL. “Giving us superior chilling ability along with the flexibility of being able to transfer the cube into different vehicles, we couldn’t be happier with it as a solution for our temperature sensitive deliveries,”the company says.
