Major European supermarket transportation innovation


UK-based thermal insulation cover manufacturers Enviro-Pod have launched a unique internal roll cage lining which is currently being used to transport chilled goods throughout Spain for a major supermarket chain.

The new innovation is designed to fit within a roll-cage, allowing produce to be sealed at a chilled temperature for long periods, without the need for electricity or any other assistance. Having the material secured inside the cage gives it protection by reducing wear and tear and reducing the chance of produce becoming unsecured in transit.

Independent tests have proven that Chill Pod’s use of NASA’s Flectalon technology can result in a considerable reduction on fuel costs and the carbon footprint of transport companies and storage units, by maintaining temperature, without the need for an additional fuel source. By removing refrigeration from delivery vehicles, companies are also able to increase their distribution capacity, reducing the number of journeys required.

The unique insulating properties of the covers are constructed from a flat polymer sheet, coated with a thin layer of aluminium which combines conventional trapped air thermal insulation with multiple mirror finish surfaces to maintain the correct temperature of the product contained within. When tested against a competitor the unique Chill Pod design saw an increase of only 3.4 degrees over a 12 hour period, compared to 7 degrees by a leading competitor.

Chill Pod Director Valerie Bullard added “With transportation costs spiralling and legislation on corporate carbon reduction tightening, it is important that we look at innovative solutions. The flexibility and performance of the material means that the Chill Pod range of covers provides the solution the logistics industry has been waiting for. Independent tests prove that Chill Pod can lower costs and reduce the carbon footprint of any business using temperature controlled transport, at a time when an estimated 15% of energy usage in industrialised countries is devoted to refrigeration.”

Manufactured in the UK, Chill Pods can be tailor made to specific client specifications. Chill Pods are lightweight, hard wearing and water resistant and boast excellent impact and abrasion resilience.

Independent tests prove Chill Pod can revolutionise produce transportation industry


With soaring fuel costs and the numbers of road users increasing, the problem of delivering consistently high quality fresh produce is becoming more expensive and difficult by the day. However, an innovative and environmentally solution is about to revolutionise the chilled transport industry.

Chill Pod is a range of roll cage or pallet covers, which can be used to transport and store chilled produce with the need for electricity. Independent tests have proven that Chill Pod’s use of NASA Flectalon technology can result in a massive reduction on fuel costs and the carbon footprint of transport companies and storage units.

The unique insulating properties of the covers are constructed from a flat polymer sheet, coated with a thin layer of aluminium which combines conventional trapped air thermal insulation with multiple mirror finish surfaces to reflect infra-red heat away from the product contained within. When tested against a competitor the unique Chill Pod design saw an increase of only 3.4 degrees over a 12 hour period, compared to 7 degrees by a leading competitor.

Already used extensively across Europe by some of the continent’s largest food retailers, Chill Pod is new to the UK market, but has already been picked up by a leading supermarket chain to store chilled produce.

Manufactured in the UK, Chill Pods are tailor made to the specific client specification. Chill Pods are lightweight, hard wearing and water resistant while boasting excellent impact and abrasion resilience. With an estimated 15% of energy usage in industrialised countries devoted to refrigeration, companies using Chill Pod products are guaranteed to save money and reduce their carbon footprint.
