Mechanical Reefer Box Trucks
Mechanical reefer box trucks, just as the name suggests, work automatically. During movement, a driven fan circulated air inside the box. This ensures a constant temperature and sometimes ice hatches should be left open, but this only depends on what had been transported. The mechanical reefer trucks work through heat convection where hot air rises then replaced by cold one that is cooled by ice.
The refrigeration system here is run through diesel, so the period of time it runs is dependent on the diesel tank size. They are therefore economical since there is no motion required for the refrigerator to function.
Modern Reefer Box Trucks
With modern reefer box trucks, chilled air is released from the bottom air units through T-shaped decking. They are built to maintain a certain temperature range, even when the external temperature is extreme. They ensure a uniform and nonstop airflow through the whole load and maintain a perfect air exchange with the cargo being hauled. In addition to cooling the goods, these reefer box trucks can also be set to warm them up. Again, depending on the kind of goods, the temperatures can be raised to a good 30°C. Each commodity is different, so airflow requirements will be different depending on the transportation standards of each.
GMC, which was formerly a subsidiary of General Motors LLC was started in 1911. It is one of the best truck manufacturing companies with high-quality output, tailored to meet different transportation needs.

When compared to other brands, Isuzu has been rated as the truck manufacturer with the highest number of medium and heavy-duty trucks. With such high numbers, Isuzu has a wide customer base that it needs to satisfy. And they have been able to do so since they have always produced high-quality trucks that meet the needs of the consumers. The company is headquartered in Japan and is a parent to other companies including Isuzu Australia ltd, etc.
Don't just take our word, hear what COOP customers have to say about our platform.
“The supply of short-term rental trucks was almost impossible. COOP was able to help by connecting us to equipment Owners that weren’t utilizing their fleets.”
“I like the convenience of being able to pick up the vehicles when I need them, check them out on the app, take pictures, and get on the road.”
Oftentimes, reefer box trucks are used for the transportation of food products. Most food only thrives under certain temperature standards, and reefer trucks are used to provide the perfect environment during transportation. Some of the most common foodstuffs transported through reefer trucks include meat and dairy products, frozen foods, vegetables, etc.
General Freight Transportation
While reefer box trucks have a refrigeration system, they can also be used for the transportation of general freight. The refrigeration unit does not run throughout and can be turned off if not needed. This allows for the transportation of goods that don’t require temperature control. They are large enough and can be light duty or heavy duty depending with the kind of goods that need to be transported.
Medical Equipment and Supplies
Refrigerated box trucks are designed with different temperature ranges suitable for the transportation of medical equipment and supplies. Medicine, laboratory equipment, blood donations and organ donations are temperature sensitive, and to avoid spoilage, most hospitals and care centers use reefer box trucks to transport them.
