Refrigerated TrucksThe reefer or refrigerated truck is a transport vehicle with temperature-controlled features that are used to haul perishable foods or other heat-sensitive items to their destination. Besides the obvious items like meat, seafood, fresh produce, and dairy products, there are many types of products that need to be kept at an optimal temperature. Items such as flowers, perfumes, chemicals, cosmetics, pharmaceutical drugs and even antiques require a cool environment for transport.

Here are some of the specifics of what make refrigerated trucks an important asset to your business:

Safe Product Transport

From perishable foods and fresh produce to life-saving medications, reefer trucks make sure your deliveries arrive intact. Floral delivery companies utilize refrigerated trucks and vans to keep flowers from prematurely wilting. Even items such as antiques and priceless artwork rely on refrigerated vehicles to protect temperature sensitive paints and oils.

Temperature Controls

As the range of products varies, so too does the optimal temperature for transport these goods. FDA regulations impose strict and consistent temperature requirements for food products subject to spoiling in order to remain in compliance. The same is true for medical supplies. The refrigerated truck gives the driver full control of the thermostat for maintaining climate control of the cargo.
