Available Refrigerated Box Truck Types

On the COOP platform, common variations of Refrigerated Box Trucks listed for rent in Boston, MA include:

Multi-Temperature Zone Refrigerated Box Truck

The multi-temperature refrigerated box truck has a cargo area that is separated by partitions into zones that can support different temperature levels. Often, these multi-temperature box trucks have larger and more advanced reefer technology systems to support the multiple temperatures, and can even have separate entrances for the different temperature zones, making loading and unloading without disruption to a separate temperature zone easy.

Insulation Box Truck

The insulation box truck is a mix between a traditional box truck and a true refrigerated box truck. This truck doesn’t have the refrigeration technology to support a temperature-controlled cargo unit, but it does come equipped with 50 millimeters of insulation which allows the driver of this truck to transport cool goods for short distances due to the insulation. This type of box truck will not be recommended for frozen or perishable items but can be a great option for personal care products or flower delivery.

Semi-Freezer Box Truck

The semi-freezer box truck is insulated with 75 millimeters of insulation materials and comes equipped with a refrigeration system for keeping cargo freight cool. This variation of refrigerated box truck has “semi” in the name because, despite it having a refrigeration system, this type of reefer is not equipped to store frozen goods. This variation of reefer is best for cooled goods instead.

Refrigerated Box Truck Uses

The commercial fleet vehicles rented on COOP can be used for any of your business needs. Here are some examples of the types of uses for Refrigerated Box Trucks rented on COOP.

Produce Delivery

If produce is not kept to a proper cooling temperature, the consumer of the produce runs the risk of being exposed to foodborne illnesses. Because of this, it is important to rent a vehicle that can cool your produce freight without any disruption. The refrigerated box truck is a great option that can do just that and help prevent foodborne illnesses when cooled to the proper temperature while being transported.

Flower Delivery

Refrigerated box trucks are great for delivering flowers because they are easier to maneuver than some other refrigerated transportation options, and also because they can support the temperature that many of these flowers need to be stored in to avoid premature wilting. Consider renting a refrigerated box truck for your flower delivery needs with COOP.

Medical Equipment

Medications, in order to have their highest level of efficacy, need to be stored at very specific temperatures. A multi-temperature refrigerated box truck is a great choice for transporting different types of medications that need varying temperatures for their storage as they get transported between the manufacturer and the patient who will be consuming this medicine.
