Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company announced its innovative Cargobull North America (CBNA) transport refrigeration units (TRUs) are now available throughout North America exclusively on Utility’s signature 3000R reefer trailer via Utility's dealer network. The announcement was made at the ATA Technology & Maintenance Council’s Annual Meeting in New Orleans.

“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,” says Mark Glasgow, Utility’s chief of sales. “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.”

Utility reports 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 (CARB) ultra-low-emission TRU (ULETRU) regulations. Cutting fuel consumption by up to 20%, reducing and, in some circumstances, eliminating emissions while maximizing cooling efficiencies, CBNA TRUs represent a monumental leap forward in TRU technology.

With the UTILITY TrailerConnect portal and app, advanced telematics data is streamlined directly to industry-standard frontends, fleet operators, and transport management or enterprise resource planning systems, Utility adds. 

“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,” says Andrew Bennett, vice president 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 United States, 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, Utility adds.

“Aurora Parts dealers and customers can now enjoy quick access to the full line of Cargobull service parts whenever needed,” says 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.”
