In the first edition of our quick trucking facts post we aim to establish the difference between a container and a refrigerated trailer.

Containers are for loading and transporting goods with different methods (land, sea, air, rail…). The role of the container is to make freight transport easier, as well as to protect its cargo from the elements.

Refrigerated trailers are used to transport foods and products that require a temperature control. The trailer has a built-in refrigeration system to keep any and all products in their pre-shipped state.
