Refrigerated Trucking: Not Just for Food!06/22/2015It comes as no surprise that refrigerated trucking solutions are necessary for many food-based deliveries and transportation services. After all, keeping frozen, refrigerated, or otherwise perishable foods at their optimum temperatures is the best way to ensure that they arrive fresh and healthy at their destinations. In today’s markets, however, the use of refrigerated trucking systems has expanded to include a variety of different types of cargo. The following are just a few examples of products that are now being transported by refrigerated trucking: Fine Art & Antiques To prevent fading, discoloration or deterioration of the materials that make up specialty items such as fine art pieces and antiques, it is important for them to be transported in trucks that have controlled temperatures and humidity levels. Pharmaceuticals & Tobacco Similar to perishable foods, drugs such as insulin, vaccines, cigars, cigarettes and other products require very specific temperatures levels to preserve their freshness, quality and potency. Personal Care Items Shipments of things like lipsticks, perfumes and cosmetics, which can easily melt and spoil, always need to be transported in temperate, controlled trucks during shipment.
