Great Dane was recently chosen by Food Logistics, the only publication dedicated exclusively to the food and beverage supply chain, as a Top Green Provider for 2013. The Top Green Providers list focuses on sustainability in the global food supply chain with profiles of companies who are exceeding industry standards in their sector.
Great Dane is the only trailer manufacturer included in this year's list. Its inclusion reflects our company's commitment to providing customers with innovative solutions to ensure their operations run with the highest efficiency. Specifically noted was Great Dane's patented ThermoGuard product, an exclusive thermoplastic refrigerated trailer lining.
Compared to traditional refrigerated trailer linings, ThermoGuard extends the insulation lifespan of the trailer, while also reducing weight gain resulting from water vapor absorption over time.
The key to ThermoGuard is that it does not degrade at the same speed as traditional insulation. After two years it is able to maintain its original insulation performance, which means the trailer's cooling unit does not have to work harder or longer to maintain internal temperature. This, in turn, saves fuel and reefer unit wear and tear over time.
A reduction in weight and fuel also means a reduction of CO2 emissions over the life of the trailer.
Companies on this year's Top Green Providers list were profiled in the June 2013 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
