Refrigerated Freight

Refrigerated trucking

Whether you have a single shipment, consistent freight or seasonal fluctuations in required services or capacity, we can provide a customized freight shipping solution that meets your budget and service level requirements.
A refrigerated trailer can typically handle any temperature setting, including keeping things frozen, regardless of outside temperatures. This protection is especially important in warm-weather climates when shipping produce, frozen goods, or non-perishable items.

You benefit from our broad experience in temperature controlled freight shipping, with access to local, regional and national carriers. Coupled with our dedicated support team and online tracking and tracing tools, we can help you manage your refrigerated and temperature controlled freight. 


High demand

Reefers are almost always in high demand. There is a consistent need for fresh food and to move products to market quickly, even during economic downturns.

Reefer freight is in higher demand and bounces back from economic setbacks faster than other methods of transport.

Refrigerated trucking was one of the cargo types that rebounded fastest from the pandemic declines.

It is more than 50% cheaper than Air. That Sounds Great!!

Better prices for cargo

In colder weather, reefer trailers also operate as heaters to maintain warmer cargo temperatures during transit. This prevents freezing or other temperature damage for some foods, alcohol, chemicals, and sensitive electronics.

Reefer rates are typically higher than dry van freight rates. National average reefer freight rates are currently around $2.97 per mile.

The types of cargo that require refrigeration are often more valuable than dry freight, impacting the cargo rates shippers are prepared to pay.

Reefer load rates tend to be lowest in the Southeast and highest in the Midwest.

Fewer deadhead miles

One of the biggest benefits of reefers is flexibility. You can also haul dry products. Combine that with the high demand for refrigerated trucking and you can greatly reduce deadhead miles.

Many reefer freight loads available,  drivers have fewer gaps between loads.

If you find that refrigerated products are going one way and dry products are going back the other, you can easily turn off the generator and run the trailer dry on the return journey.

Flexibility can help you expand your business, reduce deadhead miles, and generate more revenue.
