It’s not many companies that can claim to have invented something that changed the world, but Carrier Transicold can. That’s because back in 1902 the company’s founder Willis Carrier invented air conditioning. How cool is that?
Today it’s a world leader in heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, and parent company UTC Climate, Controls & Security operates 51 factories, employs more than 50,000 people and sells into more than 180 countries. While one of its many claims to fame is that it cools the Sistine Chapel, it is of course better known to us for its vehicle refrigeration units.
The Carrier Transicold Vector, which is available in seven guises, is a common sight on the front of UK refrigerated trailers. Meanwhile its Supra, Siberia and Iceland line-up, keep many a rigid body cool. The company also does a complete range of van refrigeration units.
Carrier has a reputation for having its finger on the pulse of technology, and has offered its E-DRIVE all-electric unit, which transforms engine power into electricity, since the late 1990s.
Another example of its innovation is the ECO-DRIVE power module, which is fitted to the side of the truck’s chassis and operates off the vehicle’s power take-off (PTO). It works independently of the lorry’s engine speed, and communicates with its CAN bus.

At Asset Alliance Group, our primary role is to help you select the best option for your business to optimize your P&L, balance sheet, cash flow and tax management through the range of options that are available to you.
As contract hire and leasing specialists, we offer an industry-leading contract hire product with or without maintenance that is built on an unrivalled understanding of the commercial vehicle sector. Our contract hire solutions range from the smallest single trucks and trailers to low emission and alternative fuel vehicles and fleet management of the UK’s largest logistics providers.
A finance lease differs from other commercial vehicle leasing in many ways, but it remains a fixed-term contract which allows you the benefit of an asset without ultimate ownership.
For companies that require a contract hire arrangement, but over a more flexible period, our solution is FlexiHire. This works similarly to our contract hire arrangements but is offered on a 12-month rolling contract.
Hire purchase is instalment financing for those who ultimately wish to own the asset and assume all associated costs of maintaining the vehicle or trailer. It differs from asset leasing primarily in ownership, but it also presents other financing methods that may better suit your business.
With almost 5,000 vehicles under management, we are true commercial vehicle specialists in servicing and maintaining trucks and trailers and all forms of commercial vehicles.
