Designing effective products and services

Together with our partners and thanks to our integrated industry, we are able to meet the needs of our customers who need to transport and store refrigerated and dry goods. We design bodywork and fittings for vehicles, display fridges and containers, as well as digital services to make them more profitable and efficient.

Vehicle, display unit and container rental 

Our expertise and years of experience in refrigerated transport enable us to offer three complementary product ranges: refrigerated vehicles, display fridges and containers. Our multi-product offering for cold and dry applications is unique on the market, making us the European leader.

Ensuring the second life of products 

The sale or recycling of our products at the end of their life reflects our pragmatic and responsible approach to sustainable development. We resell our vehicles, display fridges and containers, either complete or in parts, and recycle some of our components.
