A refrigerated van (also known as a “reefer”) is an insulated food grade trailer with a sophisticated refrigeration system built onto the trailer. The refrigerated trailer is designed to transport perishable foods or other commodities that require temperature controlled transport.

Some systems have alarm codes that notify the truck driver of a problem that is going to happen or is happening. Once notified, the driver is able to correct the issue, plus taking actions such as employing a high speed temperature pull down that can quickly lower the trailer’s temperature.

There are also tracking systems that log the time and temperature for the whole duration of the trip, therefore an audit of the temperature is possible.

Refrigerated commodity trucking is divided into two groups: chilled and frozen.

Chilled Shipments
Cargo that needs to be transported chilled is generally: fruits, vegetables, and dairy products. These products have to maintain the required temperature to preserve the product until it delivers to the market. These products require sophisticated, expensive monitoring devices to maintain the required temperature, since minute temperature adjustments are necessary to maintain the correct temperature. If the temperature is too low, the product will freeze and spoil. If the temperature is too high, the product will ripen and spoil. Therefore, the controlled temperature technology prolongs shelf life of products or significantly extends them.

Frozen Shipments
Cargo that needs to be transported frozen mainly consists of meat and seafood, frozen shipments are much more easily transported. Temperature differences may be slightly greater as the cargo needs to be maintained in a frozen state.
