What is Temperature Controlled Logistics Transportation?

Companies that provide these services use refrigerated solutions for perishable goods. It requires both refrigerated storage and trucking. 

We work with you to determine your shipment’s temperature stability, which is the range of acceptable temperatures or tolerance. We then find the right solutions to get your shipment where it needs to go, well preserved and completely fresh. 

There are options for cooled, chilled, and frozen transport. Additionally, these systems can also be used for international cargo. Container ships, trains, trucks, and air transport all have refrigeration options. 

Pharmaceutical Transport

Pharma products have made the news in 2021 with the new Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for COVID-19. These are just one example of the many pharmaceuticals that are only effective when stored at a certain temperature. 

Dedicated Trucks

Our trucks use refrigeration to keep items cool, chilled, or frozen. Because of the insulation required for this, less freight can fit in a refrigerated truck than a non-refrigerated one.

LTL & FTL Options

Temperature controlled freight can still benefit from the flexibility of less-than-full truckload or full truckload shipping. You have the choice of whether to reserve a whole truck for your business or to share space with goods that have the same temperature requirements going in the same direction. We will work with you to find the options that work for your time, budget, and temperature/perishability needs.
