The Best Way to Transport Refrigerated Products for Catering

Todd Cawley | April 24th, 2024

In the catering industry, maintaining the freshness of your products is paramount. Emerald Transportation Solutions specializes in providing businesses with suitable vehicles for this critical task, including top-quality refrigerated vans for sale. These vehicles ensure that your culinary creations retain quality from the kitchen to your event venues.

Choosing the Right Vehicle

The decision between a refrigerated van and a refrigerated truck for sale hinges on the scale of your operations and the specifics of your delivery needs. For smaller, more frequent deliveries, a van offers the agility needed for urban environments. Conversely, for more significant events where substantial amounts of food must be transported, a truck provides the necessary space and cooling power to keep everything in prime condition.

Effective Packaging Is Key

Proper packaging is crucial for maintaining the temperature integrity of your food. Using insulated containers and organizing them effectively within your vehicle can prevent temperature fluctuations, ensuring your dishes remain fresh.

Customization for Catering Excellence

Understanding the unique demands of the catering industry, Emerald Transportation Solutions offers vehicles that can be outfitted with bespoke features like adjustable shelving and partitions. This customization accommodates various catering equipment and food items, providing the flexibility needed for any event.

Maintaining the Cold Chain

Ensuring a continuous cold chain is essential for the safety and quality of your food. Our vehicles have advanced refrigeration technology, keeping your products at the ideal temperature throughout transport.

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.
