If your cargo is tender, you also need to check the expiry date and time frame for delivery, provided in the lading instructions. The recipients might refuse to accept the shipment incase the dates have passed.
Pre-cool your trailer.
Leave enough time to pre-chill your reefer and ensure it reaches the perfect temperature before arriving at the pickup location. This will help you to avoid long wait times in the refrigerated trucking industry.
Monitor shipments closely.
Units should always be equipped with temperature measuring device and monitoring systems, so that you are always aware of your trailer’s internal temperature.

Redundant monitoring can help avoid spoilage and will deliver another layer of safety and security.
