The Advantages of Using a Refrigerated Sprinter Van
Joe Dickman | August 15th, 2023
Does your business deliver temperature-sensitive products, such as food or flowers, to customers in your local area? Many companies use refrigerated vans, which allow you to keep perishable items fresh for extended periods of time during transport. At Emerald Transportation Solutions, we offer an array of refrigerated sprinter vans and other vehicles that enable you to make efficient deliveries. A refrigerated sprinter van for sale from our inventory will give you an effortless driving experience and provide more maneuverability than many refrigerated trucks on the market today.
- Effective Temperature Control
Maintaining the proper temperature for food and drinks and other products, such as flowers or medicines, during transport is essential for the safety and satisfaction of your customers. Keeping these perishable items at the required, constant temperature means a higher quality product for your customers and less waste and added expenses, such as the cost of resending new products because the initial ones were spoiled upon delivery.
- Expanded Business Reach
With a refrigerated sprinter van, you have an asset that can help you reach more customers in your local service area. Whether you operate a food delivery business or a floral shop that ships bouquets to customers, you have the flexibility to expand your market share.
- Time Flexibility
A refrigerator sprinter van for sale from our inventory can give you the independence you need to operate on your preferred schedule instead of depending on another company to transport your goods. It also allows you to provide consistently better and personalized customer service.
- Easy Operation
Many companies only need one, or several, vans instead of a large truck for their deliveries. Vans such as our Mercedes refrigerated sprinter vans are easy to drive and maneuver and do not require any special operating licensing, as do many larger trucks. A sprinter van also provides better fuel efficiency than a large truck.

What does under DOT mean?
Questions regarding DOT requirements come up often. 10,000 lbs GVW (gross vehicle weight) and over are commercial vehicles that fall under the Department of Transportation regulatory requirements.
What is the difference between GVW and payload?
GVW or Gross Vehicle Weight is the entire weight of the vehicle including the payload. The payload weight represents the amount of cargo you are hauling.
What is a self-powered unit and a vehicle-powered unit?
A self-powered unit has its own fuel source and will run independent of the truck. This is the heaviest and most expensive option. While vehicle-powered units run off the engine via a compressor mounted on the engine. These are less expensive and lighter in weight but you must run the truck or plug the electric standby into shore power.
What does K-factor mean and why is that important?
K-factor is a term that stands for the overall insulating value of the container (truck body). Quite simply the lower the K-factor the better the truck body will be able to maintain a given temperature and require less energy to do so.
How much lighter is a Poly Van vs a US spec body?
Poly Van bodies are very light. On average we estimate we are 75-150 lbs per foot lighter than a traditional sheet and post foamed in place body. These weight savings translates to less fuel burn and less CO2 emissions, along with added payload, the most important benefit.
