Many goods require refrigerated trailers to maintain quality and freshness. Here’s an overview of temperature controlled freight.

Understanding Temperature Controlled Freight Across North America

What is Temperature Controlled Freight?

Temperature-controlled freight, also known as cold chain logistics, involves the transportation of goods that require specific temperature conditions. This includes everything from perishable food items, and pharmaceutical products, to sensitive electronics.

The Essentials of Temperature Controlled Freight

Transporting temperature-sensitive goods requires more than just a refrigerated truck. It calls for an understanding of the product, meticulous planning, specialized equipment, and a network designed to handle these unique challenges.

Planning and Management

Successful refrigerated transportation depends on effective planning and efficient management. Some of the crucial elements include:

  • Understanding Product Requirements: Each product has its own unique temperature requirement, making it essential to understand these specifications.
  • Route and Transit Time Planning: Longer transit times increase the risk of temperature deviations. Route optimization can minimize these risks.


The right equipment plays a vital role in refrigerated freight services. From the transportation vehicles to the storage facilities, each component contributes to maintaining the required temperature conditions.


Regulatory compliance is a significant aspect of refrigerated freight. The regulations can vary across different states and provinces, making compliance a top priority.
