Increased fuel efficiency
for business-wide

Advancer is the first-ever unit to display and record fuel consumption data – accessible on the HMI and via TK TracKing portal – including: fuel consumption by trip, total consumed liters per hour, total consumption / remaining fuel and alerts on fuel theft.


More fuel-efficient
than its predecessor


Did you know that two-thirds of all service call outs are related to empty fuel tanks and flat batteries after long standstills?

We did. Which is why Advancer has a sensor on the battery and an optional fuel sensor inside the tank. This way, warnings will reach you before it's too late and you can evolve from reactive to proactive maintenance with confidence.

Helping realize
the largest
in b2b

Trane Technologies – our parent company – has challenged itself to reduce our customers’ carbon footprint by 1 gigaton by 2030. That’s the annual emissions of France, Italy and the UK combined.

Thermo King has responded with Advancer – a trailer refrigeration unit that was built with ambitious sustainability goals at its core. Its carbon-neutral production process, lower fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions equate to the equivalent of planting 50 trees per unit, per year.

Is that ambitious enough for you?

Alternative Energy

Advancer can adapt to a variety of power sources including shore power, hybrid, holdover battery, axle generator and even integrated solar panels for battery charging.

Your entry
ticket to any

Advancer is 100% compliant with any European emission legislation – from NRMM Stage V to urban Low Emission Zones across the continent.

Thanks to the unit’s reduced emissions, hybrid and axle power capabilities, and power-agnostic design – Advancer is sure to pass any future regulatory test with flying colors.
