Johnson Refrigerated Truck Bodies and Navistar Inc. are putting the pedal to the metal with a debut road show that will take innovative refrigerated transport technology to customers’ doorsteps nationwide.
A fleet of Johnson Premier Truck Bodies equipped with RouteMax all-electric clean and green refrigeration mounted on the International DuraStar truck chassis with MaxxForce DT engines has hit the road as of early April 2008. A hands-on test allows customers to validate the equipment for their specific cold transport needs.
"We want to give customers a taste of what the latest in technology can do for their refrigerated distribution operations," said Mayo Rude, director of sales and marketing at Johnson. "Customers will get to drive the demos and test them for a period of time if need be; evaluating the equipment in person will help them see the benefits firsthand."
This technology will help the user:
• Dramatically reduce diesel fuel consumption.
• Reduce operating costs by 80-90%.
• Effectively eliminate carbon emissions from refrigeration systems.
Rice Lake WI-based Johnson, a Carlisle company, manufactures molded fiberglass refrigerated truck bodies and specialized trailers that range from 6 to 36 feet in length. Additional information is available at www.johnsontruckbodies.com/.
