With three Dearman-Hubbard transport refrigeration units on the road and in use by some of Europe’s largest retailers, Dearman has needed to grow its fleet of vehicles and the latest acquisition arrived late last week. Two brand new Krone trailers now sit alongside Cool-E at Dearman’s Technology Centre in south London.
With Krone Trailers recently announcing a new range of diesel refrigerated trailers with its partner Liebherr, they have recognised the importance of a clean, sustainable alternative.
The Dearman system’s ability to overcome the environmental downsides of diesel refrigeration and set new industry performance standards, is an obvious choice to explore its potential.
The new Krone trailers will be fitted with Dearman-Hubbard tech and sit alongside Dearman’s growing fleet of zero emission transport refrigeration units (TRUs).
Commenting, Dearman’s Chief Commercial Officer Khaled Simmons, said:
“Dearman’s deployments for Unilever and M&S in the UK and Europe have increased demand for demonstrations of the Dearman clean transport refrigeration technology from Europe’s most environmentally conscious fleet owners and operators.
“It’s a natural step for us to include Krone trailers in Dearman’s demonstrator fleet, so that operators can see how Dearman’s revolutionary clean technology works in some of Europe’s commonly deployed trailers, to keep them ahead of the environmental regulatory curve.”
The Dearman-Hubbard system is currently on the road and in use by M&S. M&S’s ambition, in partnership with Dearman, is to quantify the costs and environmental benefits of Dearman’s technology.
Cenex recently reported, on behalf of Dearman and Leeds City Council, that if the Dearman-Hubbard system was widely rolled out across Leeds, the technology could lower air pollution emissions by 19 tonnes every year.

The Dearman Transport Refrigeration Unit is the first to meet all environmental challenges – and set new industry performance standards – all without having to compromise on cost.
