Also referred to as “Reefer Trucks,” these trucks are refrigerated for the transportation of perishable goods. The refrigerator unit can usually be seen above the cab. Besides standard refrigeration units, there are other ways that a refrigerated truck may be cooled. It is possible to find a refrigerated truck that is cooled with ice, dry ice, or occasionally liquid carbon dioxide.
A refrigerated truck may be a self-contained unit or may be a separate tractor with a refrigerated truck trailer that can be detached. Self-contained refrigerated trucks come in a number of different body sizes that will help ensure that you have the right size trucks in your fleet to serve your needs and your customers properly. A refrigerated truck may have a van style body to transport smaller loads, while others may be a larger box truck which is intended to deliver larger loads to their clients.
