Inside the trucks Carrefour Spain has installed a system of tri-temperature crates with three independent chambers (frozen, refrigerated and dry), each one adapted to an adequate temperature. That way, each product travels in its respective environment, reaching the delivery point in perfect condition. Carrefour will gradually increase the number of these tri-temperature natural gas vehicles throughout the national territory.
