Available Refrigerated Trailer Types

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

Front Fixed

Front fixed refrigerated trailers take their name from the temperature control unit placed at the front of the trailer unit. The most common types of refrigerated trailers have a power supply that is separate from the vehicles. Also including environmentally-friendly condenser units, these refrigerated trailer units will help you keep your cargo at the correct temperature during your journey.

Multiple Temperature Zone

Affording you the ability to set different required temperatures for different parts of your cargo area, multiple temperature zone reefer trailers are an excellent option for large loads of different perishable items. These are a good economic choice for a company that may have multiple deliveries of different perishable products in a day or single deliveries that have a wide variety of temperature requirements.

Wooden Floor

Due to the spacing between the flooring, wooden floor refrigerated trailers provide better air circulation than others with metallic floors. Because of this feature, they are a great option for fresh food or flowers, which both need air circulation to remain fresh. The wood also provides more shock absorption than the rigid metallic floors. The downside of these floors is that they will retain moisture over time and need to be replaced.

Metallic Floor

Metallic floor reefer trailers are more energy efficient because the metal floor will hold the required temperature for longer. As a downside, they will not provide the same level of air circulation that wooden floors do, and they are also more rigid which does not offer the same cushion. This will provide cost savings as a result of the decreased energy consumption. Additionally, metal floors in reefers are more level than wood, which can matter when every inch counts for your cargo needs.
