If you’ve been looking at shipping methods for your temperature sensitive items then you’ve likely wondered what is a reefer truck? Simply, a reefer truck is a nickname for refrigerated trucks or temperature controlled trucks. These are refrigerated trucks with one to three compartments with independent temperature control. Reefer trucking companies like RoadLINX provide these to not only act as cooler trucks or refrigerated trucks, but also as heated trucks.
The heating options in reefer trucks are especially good for when certain items need to be shipped during winter months and protect from freeze. However, both hot and cold are available in reefer trucks thanks to advanced technology which allows refrigerated trucks to heat and cool much the same way your hvac system keeps your home at a reasonable temperature.
Reefer trucks run on a closed system that is comprised of three main components: Compressor, condenser and evaporator. These elements work together to keep our cooler trucks at a stable temperature even when the outside is not.
