Many food service refrigerated fleet customers understand how difficult it can be to reduce the open door time, the amount of times a driver must enter or work inside.
The most crucial time event is the trip back to the vehicle, before departure. The last trip to the vehicle is the longest peroid of time because drivers check-in their delivery,
often help stock coolers, rotate inventory, sign bills and wait for payments. During this 10-15 minute time period, most delivery truck reefer units will recover operating
temperature and shut-off. The driver then approaches the freezer or refrigerated truck body, opens the rear or side door, the door seals often create a vacuum and cold
air drops outward. The driver loads the sun warmed or building heated hand truck back into the cargo area, closes the door, forcing warm air into the recovered freezer.
When the ambient is above 76° degrees, this prematurely activates the thermostats to recover cargo temperature for 5-8 minutes. Five minutes of reefer time X 20 stops
per day equals 100 minutes or over 1.5 hours of reefer run time per day. Most truck refrigeration systems use about one gallon of fuel per hour. This translates to a fuel
savings of $5-6 dollars per day, $25-30 dollars per week or $100 per month! The HTS also reduces physical effort, injuries, hand truck reload trime. route time and labor!
Our HTS Systems delivery vehicle equipment can quickly pay for itself in only 6-8 months and save food service delivery fleets thousands of dollars annually!!

Willow Run Foods required a safe and reliable location to transport their hand trucks aboard their Ryder Freightliner equipment. Ryder Truck Leasing asked us if we could
find a solution. This HTS tractor chassis application allows one or two of our HTS-30D Direct Mount Ultra-Rack units to be installed on big rigs, without drilling or welding.
The HTS-30DTF (tractor frame) attaches to the tractor chassis frame C channel quickly and easily; it can also be removed and re-installed on new leased fleet equipment.
This tractor chassis design is for both day or sleeper cabs; allows full tolerance for any turning radius and user standing clearance between reefer trailers and tractor cab.
Excellent application for delivery companies backhauling sealed loads, full trailers with zero equipment space and/or semi tractors that must drop-hook or travel bobtail.

HOLD THE COLD! FUEL SAVINGS $$$ WHEN NOT TRANSPORTING A HAND TRUCK WITHIN REFRIGERATED TRUCK BODIES
It’s nearly impossible to control the length of time or the number of times a refrigeration cargo door is opened during a delivery stop. Many refrigerated truck bodies have shut-off switches that
prevent the reefer unit from running while the cargo door remains open. This option can save energy and can lower fuel costs; however it does not prevent expensive temperature loss. Often the
final return trip back to the truck can be the most important when trying to retain cargo temperature! After the driver gets his delivery checked in, rotates and stocks their customer order, signs
bill and receives payment. This time can average 10-15 minutes; ample time for most thermostat controls to recover their safe operating temperature and properly shut down. The driver then
exits the building and must reload their hand truck aboard the vehicle. Opening the freezer door pulls the cold air outward and closing the door pushes the warmer air inward. This action results in
major internal temperature loss! Refrigeration companies informed us that if the ambient temperature is 75-80° degrees or above, this would cause the reefer system thermostat to recover for
approximately 5-8 minutes. Eliminating a 5-8 minute cycle time X 20 stops per day can save a minimum of 100 minutes of reefer time per day. Refrigeration manufacturers informed us that most
refrigerated systems use a gallon of diesel fuel per hour. Preventing a fuel loss of 1.5 gallons per day X $4.25 per gallon can generate a savings of $6 dollars per day, $30 dollars per week or
$120 per month, per delivery vehicle! Access and navigate the narrow aisle of freezers much safer, faster and easier when grabbing small orders. Save time, no moving or climbing over hand truck.
Refrigerated truck body manufacturers using thermo cameras have discovered that metal hand trucks heat up quickly in warm weather and act as a heating element, triggering thermostat controls!
The HTS Ultra-Rack eliminates the need to walk back to the rear or side of the box van, unlock, open, climb into, lower, climb down and secure the
doors, just to access the hand truck. A driver equipped with a Hand Truck Sentry unit can be exiting the pick-up location, returning back to the truck
with the customer's pick-up or cargo before a driver without an HTS has climbed down and relocked the cargo doors. Route drivers who make parcel
package or hazmat pick-ups now have a better location to safely store their hand trucks and they can access their hand truck and load it much safer
and faster, reducing climbing and lifting. Reducing physical climbing and lifting reduces worker injuries, Worker's Compensation and insurance costs.
Cross contamination is always a concern with food service or hazardous materials removal companies; the HTS can reduce cross contamination!
Contaminated truck body floors, damaged containers and hand truck tires can transfer harmful chemicals and bacteria, thereby contaminating the
next restaurant, school cafeteria, pick-up location or physician's office. Hand trucks travel across filthy sidewalks, through muddy rain puddles,
leaking dumpsters, dirty cooler floors, public rest rooms and oily loading dock areas. Cross contamination of bacteria, chemicals and dirt onto food
products and sanitary medical supplies can be reduced when transporting hand trucks out and away from cargo. The HTS Ultra-Rack Hand Truck
Sentry System reduces hand truck tires and load plate surface from transferring contaminates to customer locations and products. An increase in
worker safety and a proactive reduction in bacteria contamination helps protect the public health, our customers and reduces corporate risk!

The HTS Ultra-Rack Hand Truck Sentry System quickly pays for itself while it increases the efficiency, the safety and the profitability of your delivery system by:
● Reducing the time of each and every delivery stop by increasing the ease of access, storage and retrieval of the hand truck, consistently reducing labor costs.
● Reducing the liability of the company resulting from hand trucks falling from delivery vehicles during transportation, reducing insurance costs and protecting brand image.
● Reducing the likelihood of injuries to the route driver due to insecure or unsafe handling and retrieval actions, thereby preventing workmen’s compensation claims.
● Reducing the time lost by having to return to the previous delivery stop to retrieve the lost or forgotten hand truck, thereby lowering fuel expenses and labor costs.
● Reducing the damage to packages and other fragile merchandise due to loose hand trucks bouncing around within the cargo area, thereby lowering freight claims.
● Reducing bacterial or hazmat cross-contamination contact of product cargo, customer delivery locations thereby preventing illness, liability and insurance costs.
● Reducing costly temperature loss and fuel expenses by reducing open door time and total number of entries within refrigerated or cold plate food service truck bodies.
● Reducing the chance of hand truck theft or damage and merchandise theft from unattended or unlocked delivery vehicles, while providing a superior theft deterrent.
● Reducing the loss of valuable cargo space when transporting a hand truck within the vehicle interior, thereby increasing the vehicle's payload and storage efficiency.
