Shipping With Specialized Heated Trailers

Shipping With Specialized Heated Trailers

On September 22, 2022, we passed the autumnal equinox which is a sure sign that fall is just around the corner. As the seasons change, so do the needs of shipping customers. Some freight needs to be heated and kept at a specific temperature when the outside temperature drops. In today’s blog, we’re going to talk about specialized heated trailers for shipping. 

Common Use of Heated Trailers in Changing Weather

Shipping in heated trailers is very common once the weather changes. Some products are temperature-dependent and can quickly spoil if the temperature they are being transported at is too high or too low. Beverages are a good example of this. Manufacturers have to take special care that their products stay at the same level of quality and within a narrow temperature range throughout transport. 

Products Requiring Temperature-Controlled Shipping

There are many types of products that require this type of handling including beauty products, pharmaceuticals, batteries, beverages, and even ink cartridges. Trailers that can be temperature controlled have separate motors to power the refrigeration or heating. This makes the temperature control safer and more reliable. The truck’s engine, for example, can be turned off, while the motor running the heating or cooling in the back stays on.
