Container USA Launches Portable Refrigerated Containers For Vending

March 7, 2019

Coldtainer USA, launched in December 2018, is bringing its portable containers, which offer significant capital and operating cost savings, to the vending industry. The containers are a highly versatile solution for perishable goods that require precise temperature control and freeze applications during transportation.

Cost effective

Palace Vending, a Kingsport, Tennessee-based supplier of snacks, beverages, office coffee, water and catering services to businesses and schools in Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina, has outfitted a Ford Transit cargo van with a 25-cu ft front opening model.

“Coldtainer refrigerated containers allow us to transport products over longer distances for a lower capital investment, and with double the fuel economy for those vehicles at significantly reduced operating costs,” said John Nottingham at Palace Vending. “Our maintenance costs are also lower than those for medium-duty trucks with coolers and cold plate refrigeration systems, and the containers are easy to install, and we can also easily move them to a different truck.”

"Coldtainer was designed for companies across industries that need temperature control for some portion of their loads,” said Terry Koerner, general manager of Coldtainer USA. “Businesses that rely on trucks for deliveries of fresh grocery, prepared meal, vending machine, pharmaceutical and other products and their loads also often include a mix of dry goods and perishable items that need to be maintained at precise temperatures our portable refrigerated containers are very flexible and offer convenient solution for transporting perishable goods," adds Korener.
