The recent Mid America Trucking Show was the perfect venue for reefer unit and trailer manufacturers to show off new innovations and products. Showcased were new products designed to help refrigerated transporters do their jobs better and more efficiently. Here's what's new: Carrier Transicold introduced a trailer-mounted hybrid refrigeration unit, Vector 6600MT, which the company said is identical to the Vector 6500 (unveiled last year), except it's designed for multi-temp applications, hence the "MT" in the name. Great Dane Trailers showcased its latest reefer innovation, a new all-aluminum platform trailer. Thermo King Corp introduced two reefer-related products at the show; the T-1000 Spectrum multi-temperature refrigeration unit for truck bodies and a high-performance version of its SmartPower electric standby for trailer-mounted units. Utility Trailer's MATS introduction centered on its two new van and reefer side skirts -- officially called USS-120 and USS-160 -- which will be important accessories for anyone pulling a box to or through California nowadays.
