Innovative Solution Customizes Delivery Vans to Help Edible Arrangements Go Green

November 10, 2010

WALLINGFORD, CT - Recently, leaders at Edible Arrangements were recognized by Thermo King, a business of Ingersoll Rand, for taking a bite out of fuel costs and pollution. They have developed an innovative way to refrigerate their artistically designed fresh fruit arrangements during delivery. Using customized vans with all-electric cooling, they anticipate diesel fuel savings of 27 percent over traditional vans.

Because of their commitment to environmental responsibility, leaders at Edible Arrangements received the first-ever Thermo King "Energy Efficiency Leader Award" for the operational efficiency of these vans.

In addition, leaders from Thermo King are available for interviews to discuss challenges facing the industry and how they are helping customers meet those needs as well as industry environmental requirements, current and future regulations, trends and hot-button issues.
