LEARN HOW THE COLD BOX IS THE BEST SOLUTION FOR YOUR FROZEN SHIPPING NEEDS

Cold Box Express, LLC offers a compelling alternative to traditional refrigerated shipping carriers to transport your temperature sensitive goods and products.

Traditional refrigerated shipping trucks and trailers have limitations that include temperature set point, exposure to temperature variation due to opening and closing of loading doors and variance in temperature within different areas of the refrigerated trailer.  The Cold Box full pallet shipper can actively maintain temperatures between  -4°F (-20°C) and 120°F (49°C) with precise control of +/-1°C throughout the refrigerated shipping event – from loading dock to final destination.

Refrigerated shipping trucks rely on external power to operate continuously the integral refrigeration unit. In comparison, the Cold Box pallet shipper runs up to 150 hours on battery power or indefinitely on line power ensuring temperature control and flexibility for shipping, delivery and storage.

With limited available warehouse space, refrigerated shipping trailer units are also used for storage of critical materials. The time the product is held in the refrigerated shipping trailer is limited, and the refrigerated shipping time is spent in the facility grounds where local maintenance may not be available, yet any refrigerated shipping truck failure still costs time and money.

As the product progresses through the operation, reliable refrigerated shipping trailer performance becomes even more critical. Important issues include the dispatching rules, fleet size, season of the year, availability of third party refrigerated shipping truck repair, time of day, refrigerated freight product mixture and geography.

Our Cold Box pallet shipper size, availability through a national network of depots and able to ship via any LTL common carrier, delivers the flexibility that refrigerated shipping carriers can not provide.

In comparison to refrigerated shipping LTL trucking, the Cold Box offers unparalleled visibility through its 24/7 Real Time Tracker.  This Cold Box features offers real time visibility of location, ambient and payload temperature, battery levels and alarm events.  No refrigerated shipping LTL trucking company can offer this level of data for their temperature-controlled shipments.

In the world of transportation there are a number of influencers converging that are greatly impacting both the cost and availability of long-haul refrigerated shipping trailers, which, of course, is critical to the movement of larger volume, one-temperature requirement perishable goods and products.

Among the factors that might be impactful are regulations on hours of service, safety issues and wait times at point or origin and destination.  Also of concern is the aging fleet of US based refrigerated shipping LTL trucks, which likely means more refrigerated trucking breakdowns and longer haul times…another factor very critical to the movement of refrigerated freight commodities.

The Cold Box Express eliminates these risks by providing a national network of depots that allow for the quick and economical pick-up and drop-off of Cold Box pallet shippers.  This allows for improved response times and availability of refrigerated shippers versus the offering by refrigerated LTL trucking by taking advantage of our nearby depots.

Our Cold Box shippers eliminate risk and uncertainty for refrigerated shipping needs by providing readily available containers nearby that offer precise active temperature control.  Additionally, our 24/7 Real time tracking option allows you to constantly monitor the location, temperature, battery levels and excursions of your refrigerated shipping event, allowing you to actively control and mitigate risks associated with shipping temperature sensitive products.

In today’s climate of stringent safety and transport laws and regulations, traditional refrigerated shipping carrier companies provide limited control for temperature sensitive shipments. In comparison, the Cold Box pallet shipper can provide complete security of your products while enabling you to monitor the entire refrigerated shipping process. Our Cold Box shippers will ensure your critical materials are held at an exact temperature throughout the shipping event, from pickup to delivery.  Additionally, our shippers will proactively alert of any excursions or alarm situations so that you may actively respond, placing you in control of your temperature sensitive shipment.

The transportation system of many processing industries embeds multi-layered pickup and delivery points (like hubs). Complex shipping rules are implemented to ensure that appropriate inventory levels of various product types are maintained at the national distribution centers. The hierarchical design is typical of many transportation systems, but the perishable aspect of refrigerated shipping material presents unique challenges, particularly when using traditional refrigerated shipping methods.

Consider the Cold Box as a substitute to refrigerated shipping trucking carriers for the transportation of your temperature sensitive cargo. The Cold Box provides an end-to-end solution for refrigerated shipping – from processing facilities to distribution outlets.

The Cold Box shipper provides an economical and proven refrigerated shipping solution for your critical materials while enabling you to monitor the entire process.   The design of the Cold Box pallet shipper eliminates the need for using traditional refrigerated shipping trucking carriers.
