Different Ways of Refrigerated Transportation and Transport Vehicles

Aug  17,2017

It is well known that there are five basic modes of transportation, water transport, rail transport, truck transport, air transport and pipeline transport. While transportation by land is closely associated with our daily lives. So today we will mainly introduce land refrigerated transportation and transport vehicles. 

Land Transportation
Generally truck freezer units can be divided into two types, dependent and non-dependent refrigeration units. Non-dependent truck refrigeration units is driven by vehicle engine, while dependent truck freezer unit for cold chain is mainly diesel engine driven. And if you do not know which one to choose, you can click this link to learn more information about the pros and cons of these 2 kinds of reefer systems

The tractor trailer is another mode of transportation. Similar to truck freezer unit for cold chain mounted on a big truck, the refrigeration unit mounted on a trailer body is larger needs a larger refrigerating capacity. Trailer refrigeration units installed in the front of the box body, and it can not cool the goods rapidly which is similar to truck freezer unit for trucks. So the carrier should precool the bodies at suitable temperature before loading the goods.

Rail Transportation
Railway refrigerated container 
Trailer and standard reefer container can be used for railway refrigerated transport. One special trailer, designed to match with the chassis of the train, can also be used by the railway transport, and then use the standard drag head to the final destination.

Railway refrigerated carriages
This way is usually used to transport non-perishable goods, like orange, onion and carrot. Like containers, it can transport in long-distance if stock the cargoes reasonably. So rail transportation has the advantage of big capability. 

Air transportation 
Though the cost is higher and the temperature control is not satisfactory, transport company still consider air transportation as a fast means of transportation, which is usually to transport perishable goods that have the characteristics of high value-added, long-distance transportation and export to other countries, like fresh flowers and tropical fruits.
