Often broken down into 3 categories: Heated, Refrigerated, and Frozen. Heated loads are most often run in cold climates to protect sensitive products from freezing. The only guarantee for a heated trailer is that the product will be above freezing. Refrigerated shipments maintain an exact temperature between 28F and 65F when running continuously, or within 4 degrees when running on cycle mode. Cycle mode reduces the carbon footprint of your shipment. Refrigerated trailers, are designed to maintain the pulp temperature of a product and are not designed to cool a shipment. Frozen shipments are required when the product must remain below freezing. We classify these shipments differently than refrigerated shipments as, depending on the situation, specific larger reefer units with thicker insulated trailers must be used to maintain 0 or even –10F. Due to these requirements, frozen shipments generally have the largest carbon footprint.

Benefits of a Full Truckload (FTL)
With a full truckload you will get the benefits of having a truck dedicated to your load. With your chosen speed of a solo driver or team service, your product will continually be moving towards its destination. Unlike a less than truckload (LTL) service, there will be no offline routing for pickup or delivery of additional freight. A solo driver will move freight at an average of 600 miles a day, whereas team drivers will do so at 1000 miles a day with some teams going above and beyond for expedited services.
