Available Refrigerated Trailer Types

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

Single-Temperature Zone 

Single-temperature zone reefers are refrigerated trailers that have one open section cooled to one temperature with the use of a refrigeration unit. These trailers are powered by a separate generator run by one of three popular fuel types and can maximize the size of your refrigeration load. 

Multiple-Temperature Zone  

The multiple-temperature zone reefer is very similar to the single-temperature zone reefer. The main difference is that the refrigeration unit is typically enhanced and the cargo area is sectioned off with partitions to separate different temperature zones. The partitions can be sectioned off from front to end, or down the middle, depending on where the doors are located on the truck.

Metallic Floors 

The metallic floor options are normally made out of steel or aluminum, and this material is often the most sanitary and easy to clean. Additionally, because it is less absorbent, it can help the temperatures reach and maintain cooler temperatures more easily than the wooden floor counterpart.

Wooden Floors

These floors need to be well-finished in order to have the highest resistance to water, but they do have one serious advantage for delicate cargo: higher shock absorption. These floorings are great for sensitive cargo or medicines that might otherwise crack or be spoiled from being shaken up too much.

Refrigerated Trailer 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 Trailers rented on COOP.

Fresh Flower Delivery

Refrigerating flowers helps to slow down the metabolism of the flowers, and ultimately prolongs their lives. For this reason, it’s important to use refrigerated trailers when transporting flower orders over long distances. This way, they can arrive fresh to the consumer, and last for as long as possible.

Frozen Food Delivery 

Frozen food, for example, meats or seafood require refrigeration until they are cooked. For this reason, even if the trip is short, they are often moved via refrigerated trailers to ensure the highest quality. Both suppliers and eateries in Pelham can always rent the reefer trailers they need with COOP for their frozen food delivery needs.

Pharmaceuticals Transportation 

In transit and storage, most medical supplies are stored under low temperatures. Any change in these storage protocols could ruin the products which could be risky, if not fatal. That’s why refrigerated trailers are commonly used in the medical industry to ensure that all products’ value is preserved.
