When you choose a SLXi Local trailer unit, you choose Thermo King ... an industry partner, confidant, and pioneer who is invested in your success.
Indeed, the platform’s legacy goes back to the European SL or Slim Line refrigeration unit platform. In 2008, setting a new industry benchmark, the SLX utilized a fresh design paired with the SL’s bullet proof major components - the engine, compressor and controller - to deliver maximum performance and minimal environmental impact. The next evolution of the platform was the SLXe in 2012 followed by the SLXi in 2017, when telematics hardware was standardized. Today, the SLXi Local offers immediate advantages to urban markets in North America.
Greener & Quieter
45% less Global Warming Potential (GWP) with R-452A refrigerant and 3.0 decibels quieter at low speed than the competitors.
The Local Advantage
Thermo King’s SLXi Local gives the North America market several distinct – and proven – advantages in one quiet, light weight package that has been optimized to deliver in both the PUP and full length trailer urban food distribution markets.
More Pay Load, Higher Revenue
Are you tired of seeing empty space within your trailer that could be making you money? SLXi is lighter so you can carry more cargo.
6" Thinner Than the Competitor
Would you like to save money on fuel costs? SLXi is thinner so you can tighten the tractor-trailer gap and in doing so, reduce drag and save on fuel.
Greening Up the City
With sustainability more the norm than a trend and cities cracking down on noise pollution, the SLXi Local, is an easy solution. Cut global warming impact, produce less NOx emissions, and meet noise ordinances because of the standard Whisper® kit.
Powerful Inside and Out
You insist on high standards of quality, reliability, and support for total peace of mind. We refined our design to reduce the stress on key components, extend unit life, and cut maintenance costs. SLXi’s bulletproof galvanized doors can take a hit but you’ll keep on trucking.
Don't Settle. Get a Smarter TRU
To effectively manage your fleet you need full visibility of both your unit’s location and load conditions, at your distribution center and on the move. SLXi allows you to connect anywhere, anytime. Having total connectivity means accessing the flow of critical data you need to proactively manage the complexities of a modern fleet.
