Why a Ford Transit Refrigerated Van Is a Smart Business Choice
Joe Dickman | September 12th, 2023
Refrigerated vans are ideal for local businesses that deliver perishable items such as meat, dairy, seafood, produce, and flowers. Without the proper refrigeration, these items will spoil prematurely, possibly before they arrive at their destination. At Emerald Transportation Solutions, we offer an array of refrigerated vans that can help you transport your goods at the required temperature to ensure they are satisfactory and safe for your customers upon delivery. Consider purchasing a Ford Transit refrigerated van for sale from our inventory to handle your delivery needs.
We offer various Ford Transit models, from the high-top Ford Transit with a long wheelbase to the compact Ford Transit Connect.
Some of the benefits of a Ford Transit refrigerated van include:
Ford Transit refrigerated vans feature high-grade foam insulation that preserves the temperature of various products during transport to keep them safe and fresh for the customer.
Ford refrigerated vans are customizable to meet the requirements of all types of cargo, whether food, flowers, medicines, or other goods. You can add extended collapsible shelves, insulated bulkheads, roll-out trays, and more. The choice is up to you!
Ample Storage Space
Certain Ford Transit van models, such as cargo vans, have extended lengths and high roofs, giving you plenty of storage space. They contain enough space to help you transport your customer’s product order in a single trip without running multiple routes.
Easy to Maneuver
A Ford Transit refrigerated van for sale from our selection is easy to drive and maneuver down tight streets and in congested areas because of its narrow frame. You want to avoid the headache and challenges of maneuvering larger, bulkier vehicles in close quarters or heavy traffic.
Easy to Load and Unload
Ford Transit refrigerated vehicles are ideal if you need to deliver perishable goods to customers throughout your local area. You can easily and quickly load and unload items from the convenient cargo bay, tailored to your specific needs, with customized and collapsible shelving.
Ideal for Short or Long Trips
Businesses that need to deliver small, to moderate, quantities of perishable goods a short or long distance in one trip can effectively utilize Ford refrigerated vans to provide a climate-controlled environment that keeps these items viable. For catering businesses, this can be a big game changer for faraway venues. The food will remain as hot or cold as intended and stay fresh for your customers.

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.
