  • Personal Care Products
    To prevent devalue or spoilage, refrigeration is used when hauling personal care products. Beauty and cosmetic businesses need refrigeration when transporting most items because most of these expensive items like perfumes lose their value when exposed to high temperatures. Also, high temperatures might melt products like lipsticks, and this translates to losses for the businesses.
  • Flower Transportation
    Refrigerated box trucks are also important for flower delivery applications. They quickly get spoiled especially when they have already been harvested. Once harvesting is done, they need refrigeration before they get delivered. Rent your next reefer box truck with COOP if you own a flower delivery business in Gainesville.
  • Food Delivery
    Restaurants and other eateries make deliveries, if not every day, multiple times a week. Farm-fresh products and other processed foods are perishable and require refrigeration to preserve them.
