Available Refrigerated Trailer Types

Here are some possible variations of Refrigerated Trailer rentals in Columbus

Multi-temperature Reefer Trailer

One would expect a trailer with a refrigeration system to have a single temperature range throughout the box. However, innovation and technology have led to the manufacture of multiple temperature zones in these trailers. Such that, the same trailer has different temperature compartments instead of an even one. 

These reefers are, therefore, perfect for the transportation of products that require different temperatures under one roof making them economical and efficient to operate your business. They are mostly applicable in hauling flowers, pharmaceutical products, personal care products, and farm-produce batches, etc.

Heavy Duty

Refrigerated trailers can either be heavy-duty or medium-duty based on size. If your business entails heavy-duty freights such as beef delivery from slaughterhouses to processing companies, a large reefer trailer could be efficient thanks to its powerful features. This means that the load will be carried all at once without needing to use several small trucks.

Wooden Floor

Some refrigerated trailers are made of wooden floors which have the advantage of perfect airflow for products that need such. Also, this type of floor gives your cargo good base support and acts as a perfect shock absorber especially on rough terrains. However, if the type of cargo in transit is extremely heavy, wood might not be applicable because it is weaker compared to metal.

Metallic Floor 

Metallic floor is durable and strong enough to support heavy loads. This means that the floor is not easily damaged even when the load is dragged along during unloading. Mostly, these floors are made of steel and aluminum which are non-corrosive, smooth, and strong. These features make the floor easy to clean thus maintaining high levels of cleanliness and hygiene essentially if you handle food products or medical applications.
