Commercial Refrigerated Trucks

The refrigerated truck (also called a reefer truck) presents one of the best option for delivering perishable goods and temperature sensitive items to customers. These trucks have cooling systems built in that maintain a specified temperature within the trailer. Drivers can adjust the temperature based on the requirements of the products they are transporting, whether at below freezing or higher.
