Dearman and TIP Netherlands have entered into a partnership to deploy Dearman’s revolutionary liquid nitrogen powered transport refrigeration units in trailers leased by TIP to leading fleet operators.
Reducing the environmental impact of a logistics network is an integral part of environmentally conscientious fleet operators seeking low-carbon and clean-air transport solutions.
Following successful trials in The Netherlands and Italy with a global top 3 multi-brand foods company, TIP showcased Dearman’s zero emissions transport refrigeration technology at its recent Customer Innovation Platform so that operators could familiarize themselves with Dearman’s clean, quiet operation and its ease of use.
TIP has seen its trailer leasing customers increasingly look to adopt cleaner and more efficient solutions for tractor units at the front of their vehicles and the new partnership with Dearman means TIP’s customers will be able to match their cleaner propulsion investments with a clean refrigeration solution.
Rogier Laan, TIP Vice President Benelux: “TIP sees its customers frequently playing with the question of how to deal with issues such as sustainability and the type of trailers to be used. We therefore see it as our responsibility to be the best industry partner for these topics and we support innovative solutions that contribute in making our industry more sustainable. We therefore keep a close eye on technical developments within our industry and we test these developments regularly, including this revolutionary solution from Dearman.”
Commenting, Dearman’s Chief Commercial Officer, Khaled Simmons, says, “TIP’s support for clean technology innovation is major step to enable fleet operators to meet the increasing environmental demands upon them from regulators, foods producers and retailers. The license to operate diesel-powered refrigeration is closing in and it will take leadership from innovative leasing companies like TIP to support the transition to clean alternatives.”
