Customized reefer trailers for Coop Train

Coop and PNO Sweden have signed a deal on new reefer huckepack trailers to be used for the Coop Train – a climate efficient transport solution, replacing approximately 17.000 truck trips between Skåne and Stockholm yearly.

 

“PNO is a valued partner of Coop and we are happy to expand our collaboration further. PNO can provide customized units based on our specific needs as well as offering high quality service in relation to the ongoing maintenance of both trailers and cooling aggregates. Furthermore, PNO’s focus on sustainability and their People, Planet, Profit framework are closely aligned with Coop’s green strategy and aspirations. This is an important parameter in our decision to strengthen our partnership.”
 Jonas Larsson, Chef Intransport, Coop Sverige.

 

Customized trailers for efficient transport

During 2020, PNO will  deliver reefer trailers with huckepack, double floor, and over height specifications. Being optimized for intermodal transport and having high loading capacity, these trailers are supporting Coop in its objective to lower the company’s environmental impact related to transports.

The cooling aggregates from Thermo King take advantage of the latest technology offering reduced CO2 emission and noise. The trailers are manufactured by Schmitz Cargobull and are equipped with both temperature and positioning tracking, which enable reliable and efficient operation.

 

The Coop Train

Coop’s combined truck and train solution was established 10 years ago to improve transport efficiency and reduce Coop’s climate impact deriving from transport. The line connects Malmö and Stockholm. The Coop Train saves approximately 17 000 truck trips between the two cities every year.
