WHAT IS REFRIGERATED TRUCKING?
Refrigerated trucking uses temperature-controlled transport methods and monitoring equipment to maintain cargo at its specified temperature. Products are treated with care and kept at the correct temperature throughout loading, conveyance, and unloading.
Planning your refrigerated delivery in the most economical and quickest transit time possible allows your company to keep your products at their best. Tucker Company Worldwide specializes in arranging your freight according to your exact specifications and standards of care.
TEMPERATURE-CONTROLLED TRUCKING CAN BE USED TO TRANSPORT SHORT AND LONG HAUL MOVEMENTS FOR THE FOLLOWING PRODUCTS:
Perishable food products – Utilizing refrigerated transportation to ship perishable food products and produce is essential for keeping the food safe to consume.
Temperature-controlled pharmaceutical products – Products like the flu vaccine and insulin need to be kept at specific temperatures in order to prevent contamination.
Tobacco products – To preserve freshness, tobacco products such as cigars, require specific temperatures during transport.
Antiques and fine art – Humidity and hot temperatures can damage antiques and fine art pieces. Using temperature-controlled transportation ensures your items travel in an environment that won’t deteriorate their quality.
Personal care products – Cologne, perfumes, and cosmetics must be kept in a temperature-controlled environment to prevent spoilage during transport. For example, some makeup products could melt in high temperatures if not shipped properly.
Chemicals and engineered products – To help reduce the chance of a chemical reaction, and possibly a fire or explosion, certain chemicals must be kept at a certain climate at all times, especially during transportation.
At Tucker Company Worldwide, we aim to make refrigerated trucking fast, efficient, and cost-effective. We can handle anything from deep-frozen cargo to shelf-ready produce, and we specialize in arranging temperature-controlled freight according to your shipping needs.
Especially when shipping refrigerated products, we recognize the importance of the rigorous safety compliance and temperature requirements you’ve put in place to make sure your product arrives safely. Our team is committed to excellent service at every level.
