Stoops Freightliner is providing the first Sprinter van model that can transport deeply frozen cargo at –20° F.

Stoops Freightliner is providing the first Sprinter van model that can transport deeply frozen cargo at –20° F. This unit is ready for delivery to customers who transport fresh, lightly frozen, or deep-frozen products. Multi-temperature compartments, electric standby/shore power, heat capability, and shelving packages all are available.

Mark Fritcha, corporate sales manager for light-duty vehicles at Stoops, said, “The Glacier King –20° has exceeded our expectations for pulling down to temperature, holding –20° F on days of 90°-plus F ambient temperatures. We knew that if we met the –20° degree goal, we would exceed all fresh refrigerated and light frozen applications requirements and customer expectations. We are confident this new Sprinter from Stoops Freightliner will provide a temperature-controlled cargo solution for a broad range of customers.”

The product is fully differentiated from other temperature-controlled Sprinter vans.

Stoops Freightliner provides this vehicle solution with a load cell insulation package in concert with the Thermo King V520RT unit. The vehicle has been validated at 100° F to –20° F in the cargo compartment.

Stoops Freightliner–Quality Trailer has seven locations in both Indiana and Ohio. It offers a complete line of Freightliner, Sprinter, and Western Star products in addition to selling new and used trailers. Its products and services include truck and trailer sales, parts and service, and collision repair.
