radical innovation that drives you light-years ahead

Engine-independent airflow greater cargo protection at reduced operating costs

Vaccines or vegetables? Fully variable airflow – independent from unit engine speed – lets you meticulously control trailer conditions to create the perfect climate for every type of cargo. All the while dramatically increasing fuel efficiency thanks to our 48V DC mild hybrid architecture. The result? The highest airflow on the market in trailers up to 15.6 meters long.*


That’s right, Advancer's unique airflow capabilities protect your precious load at less cost.

Advancer delivers the fastest pulldown on the road today. It’s up to 40% quicker to pull down in comparative testing under lab conditions.

Our direct drive design helps you get trailers cooled faster, recover from door openings faster, and start making money faster.

Increased fuel efficiency
for business-wide
savings

More fuel-efficient
than its predecessor

prevention IS BETTER THAN CURE

Did you know that two-thirds of all service call outs are related to empty fuel tanks and flat batteries after long standstills?

We did. Which is why Advancer has a sensor on the battery and an optional fuel sensor inside the tank. This way, warnings will reach you before it's too late and you can evolve from reactive to proactive maintenance with confidence.

Helping realize
the largest
climate
commitment
in b2b

Trane Technologies – our parent company – has challenged itself to reduce our customers’ carbon footprint by 1 gigaton by 2030. That’s the annual emissions of France, Italy and the UK combined.

Thermo King has responded with Advancer – a trailer refrigeration unit that was built with ambitious sustainability goals at its core. Its carbon-neutral production process, lower fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions equate to the equivalent of planting 50 trees per unit, per year.

Is that ambitious enough for you?

Alternative Energy
sources

Advancer can adapt to a variety of power sources including shore power, hybrid, holdover battery, axle generator and even integrated solar panels for battery charging.

Your entry
ticket to any
city-
center

Advancer is 100% compliant with any European emission legislation – from NRMM Stage V to urban Low Emission Zones across the continent.

Thanks to the unit’s reduced emissions, hybrid and axle power capabilities, and power-agnostic design – Advancer is sure to pass any future regulatory test with flying colors.
