FAQ

What factors are affecting the shipping rate of refrigerated freight?

Factors like delivery distance, weight, fuel costs, and regional regulations affect the cost of shipping refrigerated freight, as does produce season. Shipping demand surges in agricultural areas during harvest season. This demand shifts depending on the time of year and area of the country, and in most cases, can be predicted with relative accuracy.

Can a reefer container maintain the temperature for hot items?

Reefer containers can maintain temperatures up to 86F when required, regardless of outside temperatures. However, it is important to note that they are not designed to heat up or cool down cargo. Instead, they are meant to maintain pre-cooled cargo temperatures.

Do your refrigerated carriers meet the safety standards?

At Cowtown Express, we follow food transport best practices, ensuring product quality and integrity. Our carriers are in excellent condition and undergo regular food-grade inspections. From ensuring proper packing and ventilation to setting correct prescribed temperatures, we adhere to the DOT and FMCSA protocols and are certified in the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations.

Can you provide the reefer capacity for seasonal surges?

We have an extensive network of reliable carriers to transport freight all year round. Our refrigerated freight brokers will match your freight demand's with the best carrier to ensure your temperature-controlled goods arrive intact and on time. We also offer expedited freight solutions to keep your cold chain running.
