The Green Logistics Idea Using Vacuum Insulation Panels (VIPs) For Freezer Logistics Box in Normal Truck
Keywords:VIP, logistics box, green logistics, environmentally friendly
This research presents the green logistics using vacuum insulation panels (VIPs) for freezer logistics box in normal trucks. The materials were Vacuum Insulation Panels (VIPs) with polyurethane foam box compared to polyurethane foam box that thermal conductivity for polyurethane foam and Vacuum Insulation Panels (VIPs) at > 20 and < 7 mW/m.K. The vacuum Insulation Panels (VIPs) with polyurethane foam box design with VIP inside the polyurethane foam protect some impact from losing vacuum that loss thermal resistance. According to the result, after 24 hours, the ice-cream temperature of polyurethane foam box that lost 6 Degree Celsius, calculated as 30.00%. Besides, the ice-cream temperature of that vacuum Insulation Panels (VIPs) with a polyurethane foam box has lost 1.5 Degrees Celsius, counted as 7.5%, and compared with stating temperature at -20 Degrees Celsius. The result represents ice-cream quality after testing that shows the ice-cream condition in VIP Box still freezing, and ice cream condition in the normal box is melt. This research can be applied to a cold room or freezer room in supermarkets, factories, distribution centers, and VIPs that can result from electricity saving for compressors or cold trucks and freezer trucks that can get the result of fuel-saving for engines.
