To see your Company name on a large screen at an Awards event is a proud moment for anyone or any Company and this was especially so for Technical Transport Products (TTP) at the Thermo King Annual Awards Dinner. This year it was held in Barcelona following the Dealer Principals Conference. Amazingly for the third year running, Technical Transport Products (TTP), have won the Thermo King ‘Connected Solutions Dealer of the Year’ award. It was said that no one has won any award for three years running before. Amazing that a company representing N. Ireland would achieve this, especially where we were among our very successful fellow dealers from Europe, Africa, Middle East and Russia. TTP were also nominated in the final three for ‘Trailer Dealer of the Year’.
“This unbelievable win and all previous wins over the years, have all been made possible because of the exceptional team we have at TTP “ commented Tracy Martin. Technical Transport Products (TTP) are the Thermo King dealer for N. Ireland with bases in Ballymena and Portadown. The Company has been representing Thermo King in N. Ireland for 42 years, originally setup by Billy Finlay and now ran by his daughters Kathryn Dickey and Tracy Martin.
Donal Cox (Regional Director UK Ireland & Benelux and Strategic Initiatives Leader EMEA) ,on presenting the award said, “we had 3 outstanding nominees for this year’s Connected Solutions Dealer of the Year Award. To be nominated means all 3 dealers were focused on selling value and data intelligence proving the importance of uptime to their customers. But we could only have one winner and for the 3rd year in a row our winner of the 2019 Connectivity Dealer of the Year is Technical Transport Products (TTP) from Northern Ireland. To win it once is a great achievement for any dealer but 3 years in a row sets a high standard to the rest of our dealers. The big question is, can they make it four in a row in 2020?” The Thermo King Connected Solutions helps deliver smarter fleet operations through telematics, for example one of the benefits of the system is offering 2-way communication with your equipment.

What a year for TTP – not only did we celebrate 40 years in business, but we also made our mark in marketing and delivering innovation by leveraging the SLXi BlueBox technology.
This is a new award introduced by ThermoKing and goes to the dealer who has been most successful in the telematics field. TK Tracking – the Thermo King system, has been extremely successful and has received great feedback from TTP’s customers in Northern Ireland. This is because it’s ease of use and functionality make TK Tracking accessible to everyone, from drivers to office staff and everyone in between. .
The system allows the user to see the location, temperature, setpoint, mode of operation etc. of the trailer, but more importantly TKTracking has two way communication. This means that if a driver accidentally sets the temperature incorrectly someone in the Traffic Office can remotely change the setpoint of the refrigeration unit, no matter where the unit is.
“TTP is focused on providing a full solution to their customers, including connectivity. With the launch of standard connectivity through the SLXi trailer product, TTP took the initiative to share the value proposition of this offering and successfully sold a significant majority all trailer units with TracKing contracts,” said Donal Cox, Thermo King UK, Ireland and Benelux Region Director. “They also utilized Thermo King’s three-month free trial with a number of promotions and achieved an impressively high activation rate.”
The dealership, in partnership with Thermo King’s Fred Rogers, Area Sales and Service Manager, effectively sold the value of connectivity and increased the value Thermo King can offer to customers. “The dealer has recognized the Intelligence and Data is the way forward in our industry. Through Intelligent Services, we can minimise downtime for our customers through predictive maintenance and also become a better solution provider as we learn more about each customer’s fleet operations.”
All 2017 Dealer Award winners were selected for excellence and leadership in all aspects of performance, while also providing a superior customer service.
