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.
