Refrigerated Trailer Rental in Columbia, MD

Any type of goods that are perishable or need to be kept within a specific temperature range, such as food or medical supplies, should be transported in refrigerated vehicles, also known as reefers. For larger cargo, refrigerated trailers are a great option due to their size and weight carrying capacity. Available in either single or multiple-zone models, certain reefer trailers can be used to set multiple different temperature zones for a single load of cargo. If your cargo needs to be kept at a specific temperature or within a specific range, download the COOP app today to find the right refrigerated trailer for your Columbia business.

Available Refrigerated Trailer Types

Here are some possible variations of Refrigerated Trailer rentals in Columbia

Front Fixed

Front fixed refrigerated trailers take their name from the temperature control unit placed at the front of the trailer unit. The most common types of refrigerated trailers have a power supply that is separate from the vehicles. Also including environmentally-friendly condenser units, these refrigerated trailer units will help you keep your cargo at the correct temperature during your journey.

Multiple Temperature Zone

Affording you the ability to set different required temperatures for different parts of your cargo area, multiple temperature zone reefer trailers are an excellent option for large loads of different perishable items. These are a good economic choice for a company that may have multiple deliveries of different perishable products in a day or single deliveries that have a wide variety of temperature requirements.

Wooden Floor

Due to the spacing between the flooring, wooden floor refrigerated trailers provide better air circulation than others with metallic floors. Because of this feature, they are a great option for fresh food or flowers, which both need air circulation to remain fresh. The wood also provides more shock absorption than the rigid metallic floors. The downside of these floors is that they will retain moisture over time and need to be replaced.

Metallic Floor

Metallic floor reefer trailers are more energy efficient because the metal floor will hold the required temperature for longer. As a downside, they will not provide the same level of air circulation that wooden floors do, and they are also more rigid which does not offer the same cushion. This will provide cost savings as a result of the decreased energy consumption. Additionally, metal floors in reefers are more level than wood, which can matter when every inch counts for your cargo needs.

Refrigerated Trailer Uses

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

Medical Equipment

Medical equipment is one of the most tightly regulated industries in the country because its products are used in human patients and have the potential to save lives when used. In many cases, medical equipment can have very specific temperature requirements, being rendered unusable if it ever falls out of a certain temperature range, even during shipping. This makes reefer trailers the right choice for your business if you need to deliver medical products in Columbia.

Produce Delivery

If you deliver fresh produce, you are part of the chain to ensure that families are getting nutritious food to eat. One of the most difficult parts of delivering produce is that if it isn’t handled correctly, it has the risk of going bad or spoiling.
