Food, beverages and many more freight types require temperature-controlled shipping. But without experts at refrigerated freight, shippers may find themselves...

  • Limiting their search to traditional truckload options
  • Unaware that significant temperature-controlled intermodal capacity exists
  • Missing out on intermodal reefer tracking and temperature-management technology
  • Spending more on temperature-controlled freight while intermodal savings are out there

InTek Freight & Logistics specializes in intermodal and can connect shippers with affordable, reliable temperature-controlled capacity through our relationships with all North American Class I railroads.

Temperature-Controlled Intermodal Container Specs

Reefer intermodal containers have roughly two to three times the capacity of the tanks on reefer units typically found on trucks. Refrigerated intermodal containers offer 24/7 satellite tracking; internal temperature monitoring; and the ability to remotely change the temperature of the containers in transit. And investments into cold-chain facilities ensure your temperature-controlled shipments stay that way from door to door.

InTek offers multiple intermodal service options at competitive prices to meet your requirements for both dry and temp-controlled freight.
