What are refrigerated transports?

Refrigerated transports ensure constant cargo temperature control and thermoregulation appropriate for the cargo’s characteristics, whether the vehicle is for frozen products (for example, frozen meat) or products that could spoil during transport (for example, flowers or berries).

SIA “RITLOGISTIKA” clients regularly carry out refrigerated transports for various product groups, which must not be subjected to temperature fluctuations during transport. The most popular are food and medical products.

For trucks equipped with a refrigerator, there is a close connection with the sustainability of the products. Optimal transport temperature prevents cargo spoilage (thawing, icing) and ensures that perishable goods stay fresh until they reach their destination or end-user.
