Available Refrigerated Box Truck Types

Here are some possible variations of Refrigerated Box Truck rentals in Columbia

Multiple Temperature Zone

Time and cost-efficient, multiple temperature zone refrigerated box trucks are a wonderful option for businesses that have deliveries of different items that need to be refrigerated throughout the day. Instead of going back to your warehouse between each of your daily trips, a multiple temperature zone refrigerated box truck will allow you to set different temperature zones for different areas in your cargo area. Multiple temperature zone refrigerated box trucks are an efficient option for Columbia businesses that specialize in temperature-specific cargo.

Metallic Floor

The rigid floor in metallic floor box trucks do not provide air circulation as wooden floors do, but they are more energy-efficient and stable than those wooden floors are. If you deliver frozen foods, medical supplies or other temperature-specific goods, especially frozen, a metallic floor refrigeration box truck may be the right choice for you in Columbia.

Wooden Floor

The spacing in a wooden floor box truck allows better air circulation than metallic floors, but they also consume more energy to stay within a specified temperature range. The wood floors can absorb the shocks of a bumpy ride better than metallic floors as well. These wooden floors do have a downside in that the wood retains moisture and needs to be replaced from time to time. If your business delivers goods such as fresh food or flowers, wooden floors reefer box trucks are a great option for you.

Refrigerated Box Truck Uses

The truck rented on COOP can be used for any of your business needs. Here are some examples of the types of uses for Refrigerated Box Trucks rented on COOP.

Flower Transportation

Because of their use as gifts for a loved one and to decorate special events, flowers may be the most fragile cargo of any on the road. Flowers have to remain as beautiful as the day they were picked if you want to have a happy customer, meaning they have to be kept at the right temperature so they do not wilt or degrade in any way. To achieve this, most flower delivery services use refrigerated or reefer box trucks. By keeping flowers within a certain temperature and humidity range, their beauty can be maintained and splendor can be enjoyed by all.

Medical Equipment

Because it is used in or on human patients, the standards and regulations for medical equipment and supplies may be the most tightly controlled in the nation. Many different types of medical equipment must be maintained in a specific temperature range until it is used, to prevent degradation or the chance of bacteria growing on it. With the expensive nature of medical equipment, the last thing that you want is for it to be unusable because it was shipped at the wrong temperature level. If your business in Columbia requires a reefer truck to deliver medical equipment, whether it be single or multiple zones, you can download the COOP app and join today to find one that fits your needs.

Personal Care Products

Whether created by chemistry or from natural ingredients, personal care products can be very finicky when they are not kept at the correct temperature.

If your Columbia business delivers personal care products, a refrigerated box truck rented through the COOP app is a great choice for your transportation needs.

The best dishes recipes in the world all require fresh ingredients and produce to make them just right. Unless your chef is cooking for you right next to the field from which it was picked, the care during shipping can make or break great produce and the meals it is used to cook.
