AddVolt extends distributor network across Europe
2019-06-04 – AddVolt, a Portuguese company that built the World's First Plug-in Electric solution for vehicles with refrigeration units, reinforced its presence in Spain through a partnership with Thermoparts, a sister company of Indufret. Based in Valencia, Thermoparts is specialist in offering services for the cold chain, and has extensive experience in semi-trailers sales, maintenance, and repair. This partnership includes the representation of the AddVolt brand in Spain and the distribution of its entire range of solutions available to power any heavy-duty vehicle refrigeration unit.
“It is very important for AddVolt to expand and strengthen its distribution network, which means this distribution contract gives us the opportunity to grow in the Spanish market,” says Bruno Azevedo, AddVolt’s CEO, clarifying that “there is a great commitment on the Thermoparts side to develop the AddVolt brand in Spain.” These innovative companies are anticipating the new needs of the sector, which entails addressing environmental problems in freight logistics, providing diesel-free refrigeration, with reduced CO2 emissions and lowered noise level.
The current European legislative trend for the emissions reduction triggers an urge for solutions in accordance to these policies in the transportation and logistics sector. This trend is demonstrated by the increasing number of Low Emission Zones (LEZ) in cities like Madrid, and in the noise emissions restrictions introduced with the PIEK standard, which is already in force in countries like the Netherlands, France, Germany, and Belgium.
For Domingo Ortiz Soler, Thermoparts’ CEO, this partnership “is a natural step driven by the increase in demand from its customers for a quieter, greener and more efficient operation.” Moreover, “this alliance allows us to revitalize and diversify the Thermoparts business, offering innovative and sustainable solutions for the refrigerated goods transport sector, from the last-mile delivery to the international refrigeration distribution,” he clarifies.
AddVolt presents the World’s 1st Plug-in Electrical system targeted for transportation markets. With this patented technology, transportation companies with refrigerated vehicles can use electrical energy to reduce diesel dependence, the level of noise, and the CO2 emissions during their operation. AddVolt creates high and positive impacts on drivers’ quality of life, contributing as well to a significant improvement in the daily life of the inhabitants of the cities.
