There is always a demand for fresh products and the reefers that support them.

  A refrigerator truck is a van or truck designed to carry perishable freight at specific temperatures Like refrigerator cars, refrigerated trucks differ from simple insulated and ventilated vans (commonly used for transporting fruit), neither of which are fitted with cooling apparatus. Refreigerator trucks can be ice-cooled, equipped with  any one of a variety of mechanical refreigeration systems powered by small displacement diesel engines, or utilize carbon dioxide (either as dry Ice or in liquid form) as a cooling, agent. The transport refrigeration sector Is a significant user of HFCs. The majority of transport refrigeration is for road vehicles including vans, trucks and trailers. The refrigerated transport sector also Includes shipping containers and specialized systems used for rail freight, ships and aircraft.
When your transportation equipment meets the demands of service with reliability and efficiency, contributes to your profitability.



      Earning your commercial driver’s license (CDL) allows you to pursue a wide variety of job opportunities. For new truckers, driving a refrigerated truck, also called a reefer, is one of the most common options. The majority of reefer trucks transport food, although other temperature-sensitive items may also be hauled in these vehicles. The pay is competitive and qualified drivers are in the high demand.
Some of the benefits of driving a refrigerated truck include:
Higher Pay
The majority of long-haul trucking jobs pay per mile, and the rate will depend on driver experience, the type of freight, and other factors. Refrigerated hauls involve additional responsibilities such as temperature monitoring so they typically pay more to compensate for these duties.
Stable Demand
Food transport is essential year-round so there aren’t typically seasonal variations in the demand for refrigerated drivers. Fresh food also isn’t influenced by the economy in the same way as other types of freight. This means that even in hard times, reefer drivers are still needed.


       Reefer truck drivers are expected to be prompt, reliable and consistent every load, every time. It’s only fair they expect the same from the company they’re driving for. Many drivers have been duped by companies who offer plenty of freight, only to see reefer runs dry up over time. When this happens, drivers are forced into the spot market, where wild swings can mean fewer miles and even less revenue per mile.Reefer drivers typically earn more than other commercial truck drivers. And reefer drivers in the specialty markets can earn even more.We pay top dollar to our reefer drivers! Drive with us!
