ConMet eMobility and Carrier Transicold, manufacturers of zero-emission transport refrigeration technology, and Sysco Corp., a foodservice distribution company, have announced they have entered into an agreement to supply Sysco with new zero-emission refrigeration systems as part of a commercial evaluation program.
The new system combines the ConMet PreSet Plus eHub with Carrier’s Vector refrigeration unit to provide fleets a zero-emission solution for commercial trailers. Regenerative energy created by the lightweight, modular, in-wheel motors of the eHub system power the electric Vector refrigeration unit. An initial delivery of this advanced system took place earlier this year at Sysco’s Riverside, California, operating site, a location at the forefront of the company’s electrification efforts.
This collaboration aligns with the visions for each of the companies, which are working toward a more sustainable future. ConMet is committed to sustainable manufacturing while developing products that help customers meet their own environmental goals. Carrier offers a comprehensive, integrated, and growing suite of sustainability solutions and services that allow customers to reach their energy and decarbonization goals. Sysco has set a science-based climate goal to reduce emissions by 2030, which includes the electrification of 35% of its US-based fleet.
