Refrigerated trailers, or reefers, are sealed, enclosed trailers just like dry vans, but are equipped with temperature control. These trailers are specifically made for moving temperature-sensitive or perishable goods.
Refrigerated shipments are extremely important for our everyday lives. The distribution of groceries, fresh produce, medical supplies, flowers, consumer packaged goods, and other important products depend on refrigerated shipping services. Most commonly shipped goods are seasonal, which makes reefers highly in-demand equipment. It is crucial for shippers to properly plan their deliveries and manage supply chains in order to secure the needed capacity.
Proper tracking and monitoring is another important concern when it comes to refrigerated shipments. Refrigerated freight is time-sensitive and prone to spoiling, so transit time and trailer conditions play a major role in successful delivery. It is crucial to properly track and monitor the temperature inside the trailer and get regular updates from the driver.
