Available Refrigerated Straight Truck Types

On the COOP platform, common variations of Refrigerated Straight Trucks listed for rent in Columbia, MD include:

Multiple Temperature Zone

Technology has allowed certain refrigerated straight trucks to be outfitted with multiple zone refrigeration units. This allows the cargo to be designated with multiple temperature zones. These can be a great option for businesses that may have a single load of goods with different temperature requirements, or a day full of different deliveries that need their own temperatures.

Metallic Floor

Metallic floors in refrigerated straight trucks provide certain unique benefits. Firstly, they are energy-efficient as the metal stays at the required temperature for longer than wood. On the downside, metallic floors are more rigid than wood floors and do not provide much shock absorption, nor do they allow much air circulation. This makes them a great choice for cargo such as medical supplies or frozen foods.

Wooden Floor

Wooden floor refrigerated straight trucks are an excellent option for cargo that needs increased air circulation, such as fresh produce or flowers. The wood also provides better shock absorption than metallic floors do. On the downside, wooden floors retain moisture that metallic floors do not, and will need to be replaced over time.

The technological innovations in Wabash refrigerated straight trucks help companies of any size build their profits and maximize efficiency.


Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company has grown from a small mom & pop shop to a global leader in transportation manufacturing.

Refrigerated Straight 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 Straight Trucks rented on COOP.

Medical Equipment

Refrigerated straight trucks are often needed to deliver medical supplies and equipment, as many different types are required to be kept within a specific temperature range, even during shipping. In addition to the temperature, straight trucks make an excellent choice for any delivery service, as loading docks as the ones at hospitals can be very busy and crowded, making the enhanced visibility and maneuverability of straight trucks a wise choice.

Produce Delivery

Fresh produce is a necessary ingredient for a happy and healthy family.

This is why a refrigerated straight truck rental from COOP is a great choice if you are in the produce delivery business. Wooden floors provide increased air circulation, so download the COOP app today to find a wooden floor refrigerated straight truck for your produce delivery needs in Columbia.

Personal Care Products

Most people would not think of personal care products as perishable. If you have ever opened a lipstick that was left out in the sun or moisturizer that was allowed to get too warm, you know that it certainly is. If your business in Columbia delivers personal care products, make sure you treat that cargo right by keeping it cool during transport. You can find a single or multiple-zone reefer truck on the COOP app today to ensure none of your customers end up with melted lipstick or denatured moisturizer!


Should I use a refrigerated straight truck for my flower delivery business?

Surely! While a refrigerated straight truck will be great to keep your flowers at the right temperature, a wooden floor will be the best option for your business. The increased air circulation will keep your flowers fresh longer, which is what your customers will want!
