Cold - Chain Logistics
• Reduced 2,500 tons equivalent of CO2 emissions from refrigerated trucks since 2016
• 18 Giga Watts hours of energy saved per year by 50,000 PCM based chest freezers and coolers
Plusstainability at Work
Plusstainability in transport to us is replacing fossil fuel-based solutions to carbon neutral and cleantech solutions for temperature sensitive products. PLUSS endeavours to optimize supply chain not just from the point of energy reduction or substituting to clean energy but also to optimize operations. Customers in the food & grocery logistics space have unique requirements and currently lack standardisation. PLUSS has a holistic range of solutions to cater to the large bulk volume transport which typically covers first mile and also small part load shippers which cover last mile.
Pluss pre-validates its solutions using Smart CAE(computer aided engineering) – a cutting-edge software adapted to simulate performance of thermal packaging solutions equipped with phase-change materials (PCMs) enabling over 80% reduction in energy, fuel and wastage of packaging material on developmental cycle.
Semi-Electric Reefer Truck
Conventional reefer trucks operate on diesel as the primary source of fuel and the refrigeration unit consumes 50% of the fuel. Thermal battery enables semi-electric reefer vehicles by decoupling the refrigeration unit from diesel engine. The electric refrigeration unit is plugged onto an electric source when the truck is docked. During this time the refrigeration unit charges/cools down the thermal batteries which caters to the cooling required during movement of the trucks.
