Refrigerated LTL Shipping

Temperature-controlled LTL shipping for the right-sized delivery

What is Refrigerated LTL Shipping?

Refrigerated Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) shipping uses specialized refrigerated trucks, sometimes called “reefers”, which are designed to maintain precise temperature control throughout transportation. Reefers have built-in refrigeration systems, heavily insulated walls, robust door seals, and reflective materials on the roof and sides. These components work together to maintain a consistent internal environment and preserve goods, ensuring their freshness and integrity from pickup to delivery.

How Does LTL Shipping Work?

Less-than-truckload (LTL) shipping is designed for businesses that need to transport relatively small quantities without paying full truckload rates. Unlike full truckload (FTL) shipments, where a single customer’s goods fill an entire truck, LTL shipments combine freight from multiple customers into a single truck. This allows you to share transportation costs, making LTL shipping a cost-effective option for smaller loads. With LTL shipping, you can enjoy the benefits of reliable freight transportation while optimizing your shipping expenses.

Our LTL Shipping Process

Pickup & Consolidation

We start by coordinating pickups from multiple customers who have shipments that don’t require a full truckload. Our experienced team ensures efficient consolidation of these shipments at our facilities, optimizing space and minimizing costs for our customers.

Loading & Routing

We carefully load the shipments onto our refrigerated trucks, ensuring they’re properly secured and labeled for easy identification. We use advanced routing software to determine the most efficient delivery routes, considering factors like distance, traffic, and delivery schedules.

Transit & Tracking

We provide real-time tracking and monitoring capabilities, allowing both our team and our customers to stay informed about the status and location of your orders throughout the transit process. Never be left in the dark again about where your product is at.

Cross-Docking & Transfers

We may transfer shipments between trucks to optimize efficiency and reduce transit times at strategically located cross-docking facilities along the route. Our streamlined processes and seamless transitions help maintain shipment integrity and minimize delays.

Final Delivery & Unloading

When your shipments reach their destination, our dedicated drivers execute timely and professional deliveries to our customers’ facilities. We provide safe, secure, & timely delivery each and every time.
