What is Refrigerated Transportation?

Ice cream, meat, dairy, seafood, pharmaceuticals, medical products, and many more. How do you think all of this sensitive freight is transported safely and maintains a constant temperature? That’s where refrigerated transportation comes in! Refrigerated transportation (or reefer freight) involves shipping goods that require special, temperature-controlled vehicles. The concept of having food, medical supplies, and other merchandise by refrigerated transportation was born in the 1800s. The first true experiments with refrigerated transport services took place where cargo transporters would place ice and salt below temperature-sensitive goods in train cars. All these experiments are destined to fail. And then in the 1900s, more efficient modes of refrigerated transportation were developed, and improvements in technology have given us cold chain logistics, making the future possibilities virtually endless.


The Benefits of Refrigerated Transportation

For many product types, there are certain circumstances under which you might need refrigerated trucking services. Normal trucks are not climate-controlled whereas refrigerated carriers have a built-in refrigeration system that keeps products at the desired temperature. Here are some of the reasons why you need refrigerated transportation for your business:

• Efficient packing - This type of shipment offers complete protection for all freights that are highly sensitive to temperature variations.

• Unexpected circumstances - During unfavourable weather conditions, your refrigerated shipping is carried out with full protection.

• Adjusted to cargo - Whether your load requires heating, cooling, or custom-tailored delivery options, all the refrigerated trucking services contain trucks of different sizes depending upon your refrigerated delivery.
