Tis the Season

“Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la, la la la la…”

Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of jolly when freight arrives at a receiving dock frozen. Frozen freight often turns into unsellable freight….and that makes for not-so-jolly people. Tis the season to protect your freight from freezing.

Is your freight safe from freezing temperatures?

With the winter chill settling in across the United States, it’s time to make sure commodities such as chemicals, paints, glues, liquids, alcohol, perishable food, batteries etc. are maintained above freezing temperature throughout transit to ensure that products maintain quality. When tendering loads to a carrier, make sure to provide the commodity type and temperature requirements in addition to the standard shipment details.

Dynamic Transit is 100% refrigerated trailers. The refrigeration units (aka “reefer units”) are set at the proper temperature to ensure your temperature-sensitive cargo arrives at its destination without a “frozen” surprise. All of Dynamic’s trailers are equipped with remote temperature monitoring capabilities, which allows our staff to consistently monitor the temperature of your freight throughout the transit process. For example, if the temperature outside is -20°F, we can maintain a consistent 60°F degrees inside the trailer with the reefer unit.

Whether your freight is temperature-sensitive all year around or it needs a little tender-loving-care during the colder winter months, be careful when tendering your freight.  A carrier that uses reefer trailers will protect their freight from freezing and avoid those frozen surprises.

  1. I never thought about how refrigerated trailers both keep produce cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The reefer units seem like a great investment. We will be hauling product this winter as part of a project and I will have to look into this some more.

    I liked that you said that one reason to consider investing in a refrigerated trailer is that it will allow you to transport temperature-sensitive items. I have been thinking about starting ym own food delivery business but I have been worried that I would end up unsuccessful due to a lack of proper equipment. I will be sure to consider purchasing a refrigerated trailer in order to keep my products cool so that I can make a profit.

  3. I like what you said about using reefer trailers to prevent your freight from freezing. My sister wants to ship some parts that need to stay at a certain temperature. I’ll share this information with her so that she can look into her options for refrigerated transport that can help her with this.

  4. I like how refrigerated trailers can maintain a constant temperature regardless if it is too cold or too hot outside. This is perfect for things like prescriptions or produce. I am grateful for these trailers because it means people can get the things they need without it being ruined by the heat or cold.
