Single-Temperature Zone Refrigerated Trailer
As the name alludes, the single-temperature refrigerated (reefer) trailer is a refrigerated trailer that comes equipped with a cooling system that can sustain the desired temperature for long periods of time. This consistent and reliable temperature helps to keep perishable goods fresh and safe without any disruption from external weather. For maximum profitability, it’s best to fill these reefer types with the same type of cargo, or cargo that requires similar temperatures for storage.
Multiple-Temperature Zone Refrigerated Trailer
The multiple-temperature zone refrigerated (reefer) trailer option uses a more advanced refrigeration technology that cools different segments of the trailer to different temperatures. These trailers often tend to be larger and are broken up into zones through partitions that divide the separate temperature zones and allow a driver to load different types of cargo all in the same trip, increasing profitability.
Aluminum Floor Refrigerated Trailer
There are various floor options available for reefer trailers, but the refrigerated trailers that have aluminum floors are built tough to handle your cargo loading and unloading needs. Not only are they able to handle the loading process, but these floor designs are also moisture-resistant and help with the cooling process.

Manac refrigerated trailers are built rugged but also built light.

These trailers are ready to keep your cargo protected from external elements, and if you’re ready to rent one with COOP, you may find models between 48 ft. to 53 ft. in length, though they do have pup versions that are shorter than these standard lengths.
