Manitoba reefer carriers: ship with Transportation Services.Ca

The term ‘reefer’ simply means refrigerator, although temperature range varies from heated to extremely cold. Reefers are either railroad cars or trucks, carrying cargo at a controlled temperature.

Reefers fall into three main categories: refrigerator trailers, including refrigerators and freezers; cryogenic reefers, that transport goods under extremely low temperatures; and heated trucks, that keep cooked food warm, and also keep livestock comfortable.

Shipping with reefers is probably the most challenging of freight services. Temperature of reefer cargo must be maintained not only during transportation, but also while packing, loading and unloading. So, it is not just the matter of carrier’s quality service, but also client’s – yours – preparation. As a client, you need to know exactly the temperature range, allowed for safe keeping of your product, and provide the carrier with this information.

Like with other kinds of cargo, correct freight measuring is important for choosing the right transport or modification for secure moving to designated location. Although, you will probably want to entrust the task of choosing size variation to the freight company – as you will need to take into account temperature control system dimensions too.

As it is the case with demanding jobs, reefer shipping is not risk free, so you need a carrier, that takes all possible preventive measures, complies with regulations and is prepared to deal with situations, that may occur on the road. Be certain, you have insurance paperwork in order.
