Refrigerated Straight Truck Rental in Columbia, MD

Also known to some as box trucks, straight trucks get their name from the straight frame that extends all the way from the front to the rear of the vehicle. The straight frame allows for a cargo area that is easier than other types of transportation vehicles to load and unload, which makes these vehicles the go-to option for large cargo loads that need to be kept at a specific temperature. With multiple zone options also available, refrigerated straight trucks can be used to make multiple deliveries of different perishable goods without having to reload the truck.

Available Refrigerated Straight Truck Types

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

Multiple Temperature Zone

Technology has allowed certain refrigerated straight trucks to be outfitted with multiple zone refrigeration units. This allows the cargo to be designated with multiple temperature zones. These can be a great option for businesses that may have a single load of goods with different temperature requirements, or a day full of different deliveries that need their own temperatures.

Metallic Floor

Metallic floors in refrigerated straight trucks provide certain unique benefits. Firstly, they are energy-efficient as the metal stays at the required temperature for longer than wood. On the downside, metallic floors are more rigid than wood floors and do not provide much shock absorption, nor do they allow much air circulation. This makes them a great choice for cargo such as medical supplies or frozen foods.

Wooden Floor

Wooden floor refrigerated straight trucks are an excellent option for cargo that needs increased air circulation, such as fresh produce or flowers. The wood also provides better shock absorption than metallic floors do. On the downside, wooden floors retain moisture that metallic floors do not, and will need to be replaced over time.
