Refrigerated transport is a shipment that requires its temperature to be controlled, monitored, and maintained within specific limits. It can refer to truck, rail, ocean, and air freight. The most common products that require refrigerated transport are food, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. In refrigerated transport, temperature control falls into the following categories:

  • Pharmaceutical: Can be kept as low as -78°C
  • Frozen: Must be kept at -23°C
  • Refrigerated: Typically kept at 0-2°C
  • Heated/maintained: In winter, the reefer can act as a heater to maintain the temperature of sensitive goods.

We originally began our manufacturing and servicing career for the transport industry in 1970, before diversifying into various other industries. This proud legacy continues today as we still specialise in the transport industry with our refrigeration services for manufacturing and production, but have also expanded into ruggedised equipment for the Australian Defence Force.

We understand that in the transport industry, every minute and every kilowatt counts.

Pharmaceuticals: Cold chain transport is essential for the safe and effective transportation of vaccines, blood products, and other temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals. Vaccines can lose their efficacy if cold chain management fails.

Food and Beverages: Cold chain transport is used to transport perishable food items such as fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, dairy products, bakery and confectionery items, and processed food. The cold chain helps to maintain the quality and safety of these products by preventing spoilage, bacterial growth, and other forms of contamination.

Retail: Retailers use cold chain transport to ensure that their products are delivered to customers in optimal condition. This includes perishable food items as well as other temperature-sensitive products such as flowers and cosmetics.

Hospitality: Hotels, restaurants, and catering services use cold chain transport to maintain the quality of their food items. This includes both raw ingredients as well as prepared dishes that need to be transported from one location to another.

Wholesalers: Wholesalers use cold chain transport to ensure that their products are delivered to retailers in optimal condition. This includes perishable food items as well as other temperature-sensitive products such as flowers and cosmetics.

Importers and Traders: Importers and traders use cold chain transport to import/export perishable goods such as fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, dairy products, bakery and confectionery items, and processed food. The cold chain helps to maintain the quality and safety of these products during transit.

Products in the industry

There are different ways to move your precious cold chain cargo. Some of the common types are:

Transport freezer/cold boxes: Transport freezer boxes are a type of container that are used to transport frozen goods. These containers are equipped with advanced refrigeration units that are capable of maintaining the correct temperature levels and product freshness during transportation.

Electric refrigerated trailers/containers: Electric refrigerated containers are a type of shipping container that are used to transport goods that require temperature control. They are equipped with an electric cooling system that is powered by mains power, battery and solar. By eliminate expensive fossil fuels, electric reefers save tonnes of CO2 each year, and have a low total cost of ownership.

Diesel refrigerated trailers/containers: Diesel refrigerated containers are a type of shipping container that is used to transport perishable goods over long distances. These containers are equipped with a refrigeration unit that is powered by a diesel generator set. The use of diesel generators means that regular maintenance is required, and with the high cost of fuel, can become quite expensive to run.

Battery and Solar Powered Refrigerated Trailers – Decarbonise The Cold Chain Industry

Transporting food and medicine that need to stay cold requires refrigerated trucks, but they use a lot of diesel and produce a lot of CO2. A new solution is to use trucks that run on solar and battery power, which can make cold chain transportation more eco-friendly.

Solar and battery powered refrigerated trucks can lower the operating cost of a diesel refrigerator by up to 90%. They can also shrink the carbon footprint of a fleet by up to 9 tonnes of CO2 for each vehicle, every year. These trucks can also keep the goods cool for longer, as the solar panels can charge the battery system when the truck is stopped or moving. This can make the goods better and safer, and also prevent food from going bad.
