ConMet eMobility, Carrier Transicold, Sysco Corp. deliver zero-emission refrigerated trailer technology

ConMet eMobility, Carrier Transicold and Sysco Corp., a leader in foodservice distribution, 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, CA operating site, a location at the forefront of the company’s electrification efforts.
  
Carrier offers an 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.
