Refrigerated Straight Truck Rental in Boston, MA

Refrigerated straight trucks, and other forms of ‘reefers’, are responsible for transporting over 90 percent of the food that Americans eat today. These trucks are nearly identical to a regular straight truck, except for the refrigeration unit and insulation in their cargo area. These features allow the operator of these ‘reefers’ to control the temperature of the cargo area to be anywhere between 55 degrees Fahrenheit to -20 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the needs of the cargo. By joining COOP, you can rent a refrigerated straight truck in the Boston, Massachusetts area for your temperature-controlled cargo hauling needs.

Available Refrigerated Straight Truck Types

Here are some possible variations of Refrigerated Straight Truck rentals in Boston

Insulation Straight Truck

Insulation straight trucks are a hybrid between a traditional refrigerated straight truck and a dry truck. That is because, though they lack an active refrigeration system, these trucks have thick insulation, around 50 millimeters, which traps cold air in and keeps cargo cool for long periods of time. These trucks are great for cool, long-lived, or non-perishable goods going shorter distances, like flowers or personal care products.

Semi-Freezer Straight Truck

Semi-Freezer straight trucks have their own refrigeration system and thicker insulation, which is typically about 75 millimeters thick. This combination allows this style of refrigerated straight trucks to transport cool goods, like refrigerated foods or medical supplies. Additionally, because they are not full freezer trucks, many of these trucks come equipped with measures that result in a quick defrost of the cargo area once the trip has been completed.

Full-Freezer Straight Truck

Full-Freezer straight trucks have all the features of a Semi-Freezer straight truck, such as the thick insulation and refrigeration system in the cargo area, while also adding another layer of protection: extra heat-resistant thickness in the doors and sidewalls. This extra protection provides a greater freeze temperature capability for the cargo area and makes this variation of refrigerated straight trucks great for perishable goods that need to be refrigerated, and for frozen goods that need to go longer distances.

Refrigerated Straight Truck Uses

Medical Equipment Transportation

Medical equipment is very sensitive to the temperature, and often medical equipment has very low temperatures that it needs to be stored at or else it risks going bad. The refrigerated straight truck and its ability to keep the cargo area as cold as -20 degrees Fahrenheit provides a safe and predictive way to get these important and life-saving medicines between hospitals and medical service sites.

Produce Delivery

Refrigerated straight trucks and other forms of reefers are responsible for transporting 90% of the food Americans eat, so it’s no surprise that a refrigerated straight truck is a great vehicle for transporting produce and delivering it to both businesses and consumers. The insulation and refrigeration units on these vehicles help to keep these foods fresh and reliable.

Personal Care Products

Personal care products can spoil or may even be flammable if they are not transported at the proper temperatures. Transporting these products in an insulated and temperature-controlled cargo area is important to avoid having a spoiled batch. By selecting the refrigerated straight truck that has the floor type and the cargo area length for the specifics of the freight you’re transporting, you can ensure that you successfully deliver these products through the last mile of your operations.
