Trane Technologies and its brand Thermo King are about to become strategic minority investor and cooperation partner of Trailer Dynamics. Here’s more about the Trailer Dynamics project, so far partnered by German trailer manufacturer Krone. According to the plans, the alliance is expected to drive innovations that enhance efficiency and accelerate the transition to zero-emission transportation in Europe and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Technologically speaking, the eTrailer provides supporting propulsion which allows significant diesel and CO2 emission reduction when combined with traditional internal combustion tractors, extends the driving range when combined with an electric powered tractor, and has the capability to power electrified or traditional trailer refrigeration units (TRUs).

Thermo King’s contribution to the Trailer Dynamics project

Thermo King will provide its industry expertise on electrification and transport refrigeration solutions. The collaboration will enable integration of technologies to revolutionize the industry, providing enhanced logistics capabilities for trade, industry, and freight forwarders, hauling fresh and frozen goods. By incorporating Trailer Dynamics’ innovative technology, Thermo King will enhance its advanced innovation capability and product portfolio.

“We are excited to join forces with Trailer Dynamics and invest together in cutting-edge electrified trailer technology that will help accelerate decarbonization efforts within the commercial transport industry and cold chain,” said Claudio Zanframundo, president Thermo King EMEA. “We are proud of our bold actions and commitments to the adoption of new technologies and collaborating with other technological pioneers will speed our impact.”
