Aldi has taken 25 Vector 1950 multi-temperature units from Carrier Transicold mounted to 13.6m Gray & Adams trailers.

The trailers have been split between its Bathgate, Swindow and Atherstone, Warwickshire DCs.

The supermarket now has 140 Carrier equiped trailers operating from Atherstone alone.

"The Vector 1950 MT systems give us the power we need to consolidate deliveries and are able to cope well with frequent door openings.

"We have also opted for the low noise specification to reduce unit sound emissions, given most delivers take place in urban areas," Aldi said in a statement.
