NEW ORLEANS—Cargobull North America’s hybrid TRUs on Utility’s 3000R are changing the landscape of refrigerated transportation

NEW ORLEANS—Cargobull North America transport refrigeration units are now available exclusively on Utility's signature 3000R reefer trailers throughout North America, Utility Trailer Manufacturing announced at the ATA Technology & Maintenance Council’s Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition here.

“After 110 years, and now under the fourth and fifth generations of continuous Bennett family leadership, it’s incredibly exciting for Utility Trailer to continue pushing the envelope of technological innovation, sustainability, and efficiency,” said Mark Glasgow, chief of sales at Utility. “The positive response since unveiling CBNA TRUs last September has been overwhelming. Our dealers and their customers have eagerly awaited the opportunity to get their hands on these latest and greatest TRU offerings.”

The CBNA 625 Hybrid Mono-Temp and 655MT Hybrid Multi-Temp models already meet California’s stringent emission standards for 2030 and comply with California Air Resources Board ultra-low-emission TRU regulations. With up to 20% fuel savings and a reduction or elimination of emissions in some circumstances, CBNA TRUs represent a leap forward in TRU technology. With the Utility  TrailerConnect portal and app, telematics data is streamlined to industry-standard front ends, fleet operators, and transport management or enterprise resource planning systems.

“The industry awards and attention our new TRUs have already received tell us the market is ready for and excitedly anticipates this ground-breaking technology,” said Andrew Bennett, VP and member of the family business’ fourth-generation leadership. “We’ve been working tirelessly to get to this moment, and our expansive dealer network is now ready to serve customers across the continent.”

Sales and service for 3000R trailers with the 625 and 655MT Hybrid TRUs are now available at over 125 Utility Trailer dealers across the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. Additionally, CBNA aftermarket parts are available through Aurora Parts, its exclusive parts distributor, with more than 700 dealers served by six North American distribution centers.

“Aurora Parts dealers and customers can now enjoy quick access to the full line of Cargobull service parts whenever needed,” said Brad Fulkerson, Aurora Parts president and CEO. “I’m proud to work with Utility, and I look forward to seeing their new 625 and 655MT Hybrid TRUs revolutionize temperature-controlled transportation.”
