Fully electric refrigerated delivery vehicles move to testing in the US
Trackloop's temperature monitoring software has been deployed by BYD Motors on demonstration vehicles being tested in New York and California
Trackloop Analytics Corp and BYD Company Ltd, in collaboration with Volta Air Technologies have deployed Trackloop's proprietary temperature monitoring software in two BYD all-electric refrigeration delivery vehicles, which are being demonstrated for commercial use in North America.
The demonstration vehicles use Volta Air's latest transport refrigeration unit, equipped with Trackloop's real-time cold-chain monitoring and tracking software to create and establish 'zero-emission' refrigerated delivery vehicles.
BYD Motors is the largest electric vehicle manufacturer in the world, with plans to offer all-electric refrigeration delivery vehicles throughout North America - Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A) is one of its largest shareholders.
A commercial demonstration is currently underway with two vehicles by Baldor Specialty Foods in New York, and, Raley's Supermarkets & D&D Produce in California. Vehicles have also been showcased at several food delivery and advanced transportation expos.
"We are very proud to be with leaders in the food logistics industry, involved in building a more sustainable future. Working with BYD Motors and Volta Air on this project to successfully demonstrate the value of all-electric refrigeration delivery vehicles is a massive milestone in the company's roadmap, and the industry as a whole", said Trackloop CTO, Zayn Kalyan.
