Ice Cream Vending

Small ice-cream vendors have been using reefer trucks for the longest time. Using reefer straight trucks for ice cream businesses not only cuts down operation costs but also helps to market and gives a business flexibility that they don’t get using commercial stalls. If the business isn’t doing well in one area, you can tap into another market for improvements.


General Freight

Reefer straight trucks are also used for dry freight hauling. Just because they have refrigeration systems does not mean that they cannot be used for dry freight transportation. When the system turns off, they can be used the same way as standard straight trucks, for the transportation of dry freight.  


Frozen Foods and Temperature Sensitive Goods

Frozen foods need to stay frozen, even during transportation. To keep them that way, reefer straight trucks are used. Also, some goods are highly sensitive to heat. Such goods include select beauty products, fine art and antique tobacco products, etc. This type of cargo requires specific temperature control during transportation. Fine art and antiques, as well as some tobacco products are highly valuable, while some beauty products are only effective if kept under certain temperatures.


Medical Applications

Reefer straight trucks are also highly depended on for different medical applications. To prevent clotting and to stay useful, blood and organ donations are usually transported using reefer straight trucks. In addition, manufacturers use the same trucks to transport medicines and other equipment to hospitals. 


Short Hauls 

Reefer straight trucks can also be used for short hauls for goods that don’t necessarily require temperature control. If a business mostly deals with the transportation of perishable and other goods that need temperature control, there is no need for acquiring an extra truck for short hauls. The same reefer trucks used can be used to run such errands and in turn, reduce expenses.
