British grocery chain Tesco has signed a new order for 120 Cool Liners from trailer manufacturer Krone. The vehicles will be deployed at the Tesco subsidiary in Poland, which ordered 160 Cool Liners in 2003.
Krone is the only trailer manufacturer to offer refrigerated trailers with a load-securing certificate. TÜV Nord awarded this certification to Krone in June for the new Cool Liner series (with or without double deck arrangement). In structural stability, the Krone Cool Liner exceeds the minimum standards for a certified curtainside trailer.
Tesco is the largest grocery chain in Great Britain, although business in Central Europe is increasingly responsible for the rise in the group's sales. Klaus J Gierl, sales manager at Danish branch Krone A/S, has turned over the first of the 120 new series Krone Cool Liners to Zbigniew Gocek, transport and customer service manager at Tesco's Polish subsidiary. Tesco operates about 40 supermarkets in Poland.
