Introducing Direct Cold
Feb 19

The Cold Facts

Andrews Refrigerated Transport undergoes a facelift to launch our new and exciting Refrigerated Transport Division called Direct Cold.

It has been only a few months since Direct Couriers announced the acquisition of Andrews Refrigerated Transport and the launch of Direct Cold, our new Refrigerated Transport division specialising in Pharmaceutical, Healthcare and perishable goods.

As part of our integration plan, we have incorporated all the technology benefits that Direct Couriers offers you, such as online booking, Notification alerts, Live GPS tracking, reporting and we can even provide the transported temperature directly on the POD instantly.

Along  with the launch of the new division, we have undergone a rebranding process for all of our new fleet of refrigerated vehicles.

The first stage of the facelift process was to design the logo that incorporated Direct Couriers but included the new specialised COLD division.

Once completed, we created variations of the logo that would work seamlessly along a semi-trailer right down to the smallest ute.

Our first truck to be rebranded was the 12 pallet refrigerated vehicle from Andrews Refrigerated Transport.

Follow the journey below with our first Direct Cold vehicle to undergo the facelift.

For more information regarding our Direct Cold service, please contact your Account Manager or email sales@directcouriers.com.au 

We started with the Andrews Transports 12 pallet refrigerated vehicle.
