Single-Temperature Zone Refrigerated Trailer
Single-temperature zone reefers are refrigerated trailers that have one open section cooled to one temperature with the use of a refrigeration unit. These trailers are powered by a separate generator run by one of three popular fuel types, and can maximize the size of your refrigeration load.
Multiple-Temperature Zone Refrigerated Trailer
The multiple-temperature zone reefer is very similar to the single-temperature zone reefer. The main difference is that the refrigeration unit is typically enhanced and the cargo area is sectioned off with partitions to separate different temperature zones. The partitions can be sectioned off from front to end, or down the middle, depending on where the doors are located on the truck.
The flooring inside a dry van trailer is typically either wooden or metallic. The metallic floor options are normally made out of steel or aluminum, and this material is often the most sanitary and easy to clean. Additionally, because it is less absorbent, it can help the temperatures reach and maintain cooler temperatures more easily than the wooden floor counterpart.
Wooden floors are the other option for the inside flooring of a dry van trailer. These floors typically need to be well-finished in order to have the highest resistance to water, but they do have one serious advantage for delicate cargo: higher shock absorption. These floorings are great for sensitive cargo or medicines that might otherwise crack or be spoiled from being shaken up too much.

Fresh Flower Delivery
Florists recommend refrigerating freshly cut flowers. The action of refrigerating them helps to slow down the metabolism of the flowers, and ultimately prolongs their lives. For this reason, it’s important to use refrigerated trailers when transporting flower orders over long distances so that they can arrive fresh to the consumer, and last for as long as possible to keep the consumer happy.
Frozen Food Delivery
Frozen food that is thawed and refrozen multiple times can affect the quality and freshness of the food, especially if that frozen food product is a form of meat. For this reason, even if the trip is short, retailers and farmers cannot afford to use anything but refrigerated trailers to transport their frozen food if they are looking to ensure the highest quality for the end consumer
Medicine saves lives, but it couldn’t do so without it being safely transported from the manufacturer to the patient. In transit and storage, medicine is typically recommended to be stored in a cool and dry place. Any change in these storage protocols could ruin the medication and ultimately cost the patient their life. That’s why the pharmaceutical industry couldn’t transport their freight and save lives without the disruption-minimized cooling units that refrigerated trailers provide.
The pharmaceutical industry in Worcester, Massachusetts has very strict standards for what temperature and environment their products must be stored at, and for good reason.

Refrigerated trailers keep stable temperatures for long distances, not only for the pharmaceutical industry but for any refrigerated transportation needs you may have as well.
