Refrigerated trailers are like standard 48’ or 53’ dry van trailers, but there are a few important differences:

  • The walls, ceiling, and floors are made of metal or fiberglass, never wood. This not only improves insulation, but it prevents the floors and walls from absorbing odors from the product.
  • Between the heavier construction materials and refrigeration units, refrigerated trailers are heavier. The maximum loadable weight for a 53’ refrigerated trailer is 43,500 lbs.


We are knowledgeable of all policies and procedures regarding the transportation of fresh produce from the USA, Canada, and Mexico.

While perishable foods are always shipped in refrigerated trailers, many products that you will not find in your refrigerator require temperature control — to name a few:

  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Hazardous materials
  • Flowers
  • Paint
