Temperature Controlled Trailers - How Special Trailers Keep Your Perishable Goods Safe

April 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 183

One of the most pressing concerns for businesses that deal with perishable goods is that their products remain in optimal condition for the buyer. This is especially true if the products are to be shipped, which they usually are, both nationally and internationally. If your business revolves around perishable goods, then you know how imperative it is that your goods stay fresh and at peak quality for as long as possible. One way to achieve this is by renting or purchasing temperature controlled trailers.

Both the features and benefits of a temperature controlled trailer are impressive and necessary if you have a company that deals in perishable goods. One benefit to a trailer is its large size. Unlike a refrigerator, which is far smaller, it can store many items therefore allowing for a large or expanding business. Special trailers are usually available in 30, 60, 80 and 120 cubic foot capacity, allowing you to optimize your space. They also recharge in just a few hours, depending on the amount of batteries needed. Another benefit to a trailer is that you can ship it in a number of ways; it can travel on a carrier by sea, land or air, making shipping goods from place to place easy.

For those clients who have a larger business, you will be satisfied to know that as many as 10 units can be shipped on a vehicle (you can even have trailers set a different temperatures). This makes shipment options practically limitless-no longer do you have to ship produce and livestock separately, or worry about how to get multiple orders to different suppliers at the same time. With a temperature controlled trailer, you will have a place to store your perishable goods in the conditions they require. You can choose between freezing temperatures, average refrigeration temperatures, warm temperatures and even ambient conditions.

If you are concerned about when trailers can drop off your perishable goods, you will be happy to know this additional benefit of renting or owning a temperature controlled trailer: trailers allow for drop off deliveries at night, when access to facilities is normally limited. This means that if you have an emergency delivery, or are under a strict deadline, you will have more time to work with. When trailers arrive at their destination, unloading is simple because almost all trailers are three-way fork lift capable and four point top lift capable.

With all the features and benefits that come with a temperature controlled trailer, you may still have concerns about leasing and payment options, especially if you are a smaller company. Normally you are given the choice to either purchase special trailers or to lease them. With a lease, you will usually be offered a quick turnaround, 100% financing, fixed payment, and flexible payment options. If you plan to make a long-term investment for your business, then purchasing a trailer may be the best option for you. With both leasing and purchasing trailers, you can fill out a quote form to get a more detailed explanation in terms of features and charges.
