There are a lot of trucking companies claiming they specialize in Refrigerated Trucking. These days however most of them are new to the industry. Furthermore many aren’t experienced professionals in Temperature Controlled Trucking where the temperature must be specifically matched to the freight and kept so throughout transit.
The important thing in Refrigerated Trucking is knowing more than just the basics; it’s that companies claiming to be experienced at refrigerated trucking and actually being so are two completely different concepts which affect pickup, hauling, delivery, storage, cost, adherence to rules and laws and much more. As an example, when shipping consumable goods into or out of the state of California a trucking company is required to be registered with ARBER (Air Resources Board Equipment Registration) and TRU (Transport Refrigeration Unit Generator Set Regulations). Beginning January 1, 2013, California law requires freight brokers, forwarders, shippers, and receivers to only hire and dispatch TRU-equipped trucks, trailers, shipping containers, and rail cars that are compliant with the in-use performance standards if the perishable load will travel on California highways or railways.
