The 3 in 1 ATP certified transport solution – Ambient – Fresh – frozen

reusable, lightweight, robust and easy to use solution, its internal volume is a genuine alternative to a refrigerated truck (mono or bi) or a complimentary solution to your existing fleet of vehicles.

Ideal for the collection, distribution or delivery of temperature-sensitive products.

This box has been developed for the transport of temperature-sensitive food products (cold, sub-zero and ambient temperatures), it complies with ATP requirements and has been certified for the transportation of fresh and frozen products.

This solution comprises a 5mm nylon/polyester external cover lined with polyethylene foam, which covers a 6-sided 60mm thick polyurethane box (PU).

Thanks to the PU performance (lambda 0.21), it guarantees the temperature maintenance of products for a variable duration between 12 and 96 hours.

Robust: it bears the brunt of the transport (handling and … ..)

Lightweight (<20kg) and portable, thanks to reinforced handles on 5-sides

Long life: designed in a modular format it is possible to quickly and easily replace damaged or worn parts.

Simple maintenance thanks to its materials: the inner bag is completely waterproof and can be extracted for cleaning.

Easy transport and handling: compartments for documents, internal holders for ice packs, reinforced carrying handles and double straps on the back for mounting on a trolley.

ColdandCo answers your questions…

Why use cold supply with an isothermal container ?

Heat is an energy that is transmitted from a warm matter to a cold matter. The exchange only stops when both matters balance at the same temperature.

An isothermal material will slow down these heat intakes until the inside and outside environments are at the same temperature. Therefore, an isothermal container alone cannot maintain the stability of the desired temperature. A cold supply is necessary: active cooling, passive cooling or cryogenic cooling…

The ATP, what should I know?

ATP is an acronym for ‘the Agreement on the International Carriage of Perishable Foodstuffs and on the Special Equipment to be used for such Carriage’.

This United Nations treaty, which entered into force in 1976, was signed by 48 countries.

In European countries having contracted the ATP, the transport of perishable foodstuffs is subject to two types of regulation:

  • An obligation to achieve results: the food must be transported at the temperature indicated in the legislation.
  • A duty of care requiring the use of a transport system with a certificate of ATP technical conformity. The text is available here: Text of the ATP Agreement on UNECE website.

The ATP sets out the thermal insulation and refrigeration performance requirements necessary to transport perishable foodstuffs. This obligation may be waived for transport of less than 80km without reloading i.e. without opening the doors of the refrigerated unit.

In other words, the distribution of perishable foodstuffs for a distance of less than 80km and with several delivery points must:
1. Justify correct temperatures for maintaining perishable foodstuffs;
2. Use ATP approved solutions, insulating sufficiently and with good refrigeration capacity.

How to benefit from an ATP certificate?

To benefit from an ATP certificate each isothermal container and each cooling device is subjected to a test in an official ATP test station. This test is used to qualify:


A measure of the K coefficient, insulation coefficient, determines the isothermal quality of the equipment:

  • If the vehicle’s K coefficient is greater than > 0.7 W/m²K:
The container does not 
have insulating quality.

  • If the vehicle’s K coefficient is between 0.4 and 0.7 W/m²K:
The container is ‘Normally Insulated’
(known as ‘IN’), sufficient 
for the transport of products
in positive cooling.

  • If the vehicle’s K coefficient is less than 0.4 W/m²K:
The container is ‘Heavily Insulated’
(Known as ‘IR’), necessary
for the transport of products
in negative cooling.


For an outside temperature of 30°C, a refrigerating unit will be classified into 4 classes if it lowers and maintains the inside temperature for more than 12 hours:

  • at 7°C at the most:
Class A

  • at -10°C at the most:
Class B
(K Coefficient shall be less than 0.4W/m²K)

  • at -20°C at the most:
Class C
(K Coefficient shall be less than 0.4W/m²K)

  • à 0°C at the most:
Class D

For example, ColdandCo’s CarryTemp containers have obtained the ATP agreement as a reinforced class C and D refrigerated unit.
