Autonomous refrigeration of the 21st century

Coldway Technologies designs, tests and manufactures refrigeration units that function using a patented sorption system. They are built into the isothermal containers used to transport thermo-sensitive products for the health and food markets.

The system allows precise temperatures to be set conforming to all the regulations and statutory requirements applying to noise and air pollution. In addition, maintenance and operating costs are reduced. It is the only perfectly ecological, nomadic refrigeration system.

Eco-friendly and sustainable refrigerated transport at SITL 2021

SITL is a major annual event for transport and logistics businesses. This 2021 edition is focussing on innovation and green logistics. It is the ideal showcase for Coldway Technologies refrigeration systems which offer an eco-friendly alternative to urban last mile delivery. A refrigerated transport solution you can discover at the Sofrigam Group stand from 13 to 15 September at Paris Porte de Versailles.

Refrigerated transport: the challenges of urban delivery

last mile urban deliveryIt is estimated that refrigeration uses about 20% of the total electricity consumed globally. Each year, in France alone, 100 million tonnes of heat-sensitive products are delivered by refrigerated vehicles. 

The goods transport industry is the leading sector emitting greenhouse gases in France, with nearly 30% of emissions.  The last mile is the costliest link that produces the most pollution in the delivery chain. It allegedly represents between 30% and 40% of the economic costs of transport, as well as of polluting emissions.

However, the Covid-19 crisis has revealed how essential cold logistics are on an everyday basis in key industrial areas such as healthcare and food. This means rapidly growing logistics that increase delivery flows in the centre of cities, which are already congested and suffering from emissions pollution as well as visual and noise pollution.

Therefore, how do you support the growth of refrigerated transport for urban delivery in an eco-friendly way?

Coldway Technologies: autonomous, eco-friendly refrigeration supporting urban delivery

On-board refrigerated container Coldway TechnologiesHave you ever imagined that one day you would be able to safely deliver frozen, chilled or hot products to the city centre at any time of the day or night, without creating any noise or pollution?

This is what the Coldway Technologies refrigeration system renders possible: autonomous, silent and eco-friendly cold production technology, which fits on any type of container or vehicle (utility vehicle, scooter, tricycle or bicycle).

It means another model of temperature-controlled urban delivery is now possible, using alternative means of transport for low-carbon cold chain logistics.

Coldway Technologies is a major advance in the eco-friendly and energy transition of logistics and refrigeration thanks to 100% silent, carbon-free, green delivery solutions in urban centres"


Coldway Technologies refrigeration has 6 key advantages:

  • MODULAR: it adapts to all vehicles designed for urban last mile delivery, especially electric vehicles;
  • ECO-FRIENDLY: the system works with a natural refrigerant, acclaimed by government authorities as a replacement for HFCs;
  • QUIET: cold production is completely silent and falls well below the PIEK standard enabling deliveries at night or at off-peak hours;
  • EFFICIENT: the refrigeration is optimal, regulated, extremely accurate and works even in a heat wave;
  • AUTONOMOUS: the refrigeration is completely independent of the vehicle's batteries and does not need to be connected to them for it to work.
  • DURABLE: The system life is over 10 years, with over 3,000 operating cycles recorded, and the MTBF is over 6 years.

This refrigeration system provides a unique innovative solution to make last mile deliveries easier in the city centre, without creating a nuisance or any pollution.

An autonomous and eco-friendly refrigeration solution that has already been adopted by the food and pharmaceutical transport sectors, such as Gandon Transports and Saveurs & Vie, whose testimonials you can discover in this special issue of Froid News.


The Coldway Technologies refrigeration system can be seen at the Sofrigam Group stand at SITL 2021.

Welcome to the new Coldway Technologies website

SOFRIGAM GROUP and its entity Coldway Technologies are very proud to announce the launch of the new website this Thursday, 17 September. All the expertise, innovation and technology of this 21st-century autonomous refrigeration system will be presented. The refrigeration of the future is now a reality, and it intends to be resolutely responsible and environmentally-friendly. Explanation.


Autonomous, mobile, quiet and durable, the Coldway Inside refrigeration system is an eco-friendly technology that is completely carbon-free.

Not only does it facilitate the last mile delivery under cold chain in city centres, but it also provides:

  • an adapted response to the problems of urban delivery,
  • an alternative to the new regulations governing refrigerants.


Used for more than 15 years in markets where stringency and rigor are required, such as the health, food and automotive fields, the refrigeration system developed by Coldway Technologies also offers broad application prospects with manufacturers who put the environment and mobility at the heart of their concerns.

Discover the Coldway Inside technology via explanations and diagrams:


The entire Coldway Technologies team is very pleased to welcome you on this new website and wishes you a pleasant navigation in the heart of the autonomous cold of the 21st century.

Coldway Technologies exhibits at MOVE London

Coldway Technologies will present its disruptive refrigeration technology at the Move trade show in London on 11 - 12 February. 100% self-contained, 100% eco-friendly and adaptable to any type of vehicle, scooter or tricycle, come and discover refrigeration of the future with efficient and sustainable urban delivery.

Decongesting city centres

While in recent years, metropolitan areas have by and large succeeded in streamlining the flow of traffic and people, the transport of goods still needs to be optimised.

Last-mile logistics is the most difficult to manage:

  • the boom of e-commerce has dramatically increased home deliveries,
  • the growth of retail outlets in metropolitan areas, which themselves are setting up local services, is significantly increasing delivery flows, especially deliveries of products via the cold chain (food products or medicines).

This is not without its problems in city centres, already invaded by delivery vans and plagued by congestion, loud noise, and pollution. The first to be impacted are ultimately those living in cities, whose quality of life is at risk.

Rethinking the urban deliveries of tomorrow

In 2050, it is estimated that 68% of the global population will live in metropolitan areas, compared to 55% today. The impact will be considerable in the major urban centres.

Given this situation and the magnitude of the environmental challenges, we urgently need to find green solutions to relieve congestion in city centres, while meeting the service needs expected by those living there.

A self-contained, eco-friendly refrigeration system, adaptable to any type of vehicle

Can you imagine one day being able to deliver frozen, fresh or hot products, with zero risk, at any time of day or night, with no noise or pollution?

This is what makes the technology developed by Coldway Technologies possible: a completely self-contained and eco-friendly refrigeration production system, which can be fitted to any type of vehicle, scooter, tricycle or bicycle.

This refrigeration technology is unique:

  • Self-contained for up to 24 hours,
  • Hot or cold products between -18°C and +25°C,
  • Completely silent, (Piek standard – Certibruit certified),
  • Robust and durable (more than ten years of production cycles with no loss of performance), only low maintenance is required,
  • Adaptable, the system is completely independent of the vehicle and its batteries if it is electric.

This 100% self-contained and 100% eco-friendly refrigeration system provides a unique and innovative solution to facilitate “last mile” deliveries in city centres, with no noise or pollution.

Come and see it on 11 - 12 February at the Move trade show in London, the biggest trade show dedicated to urban mobility.
