Refrigerated Delivery Trucks

Refrigerated delivery solutions by ATC. From compact vans to high roof, extended wheelbase or straight trucks, Advanced Temperature Control has a solution for your delivery needs.

Refrigerated delivery trucks have been such an integral part of the supply chain, that it is impossible to imagine life without the products they transport. In 1938  Frederick McKinley Jones invented the Refrigeration unit. Later with the creation of the interstate highway system, refrigerated transportation of goods became and continues to be an important aspect of perishable and temperature sensitive products.

The cold chain as it is known is the method and process of transporting products while ensuring they remain fresh, kept from deterioration and losing their value. The global trade of perishable items has increased in the past years causing a larger demand for quick transportation. This is not only true for food, such as produce, meat, and dairy, but also for other sensitive items such as medical products and pharmaceuticals.

The development of temperature-controlled products is growing at a rate that is more than double the rate of growth in non-temperature controlled products. Since its inception, mobile refrigeration has continued to improve as the demand has increased. Delivering temperature and time-sensitive goods like flowers, bakery, and dairy products, frozen foods, pharmaceuticals and even goods that require dual temperature settings during transport, are all made easier with a refrigerated solution from ATC.

TODAY’S REFRIGERATED DELIVERY TRUCKS

Many businesses are looking to add more fuel-efficient vehicles to their urban delivery fleet and auto manufacturers provide a wide range of options for the growing van market. Reefers, as they are called, were initially used on straight trucks, semi or tractor trailers. Today, vans built as an alternative to traditional straight trucks provide a cost-effective and efficient design. From small cargo vans to high roof extended wheelbase vans with almost the same cargo carrying capacity as a traditional 12 ft straight truck, today’s refrigerated delivery vans are designed with utility, safety and the optimal cargo carrying capacity in mind.

The Man Who Invented the Refrigerated Truck

Frederick McKinley Jones is the inventor of the refrigeration unit. He invented the first portable air-cooling unit, also referred to as the refrigeration unit. With his innovations, mobile refrigeration was improved for the long-distance transport of medical supplies, food, and other perishable goods.

Biography: Before The Portable Refrigeration Unit

Frederick McKinley Jones was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in late Spring of 1893. By the time he was 14 years old, he was able to work with automobiles as a naturally skilled mechanic. From there he continued to self-educate, read and study material that contributed to his natural mechanical ability and innovative mind.

Jones continued to seek advancement and moved from Cincinnati to Hallock, Minnesota. He gained employment as a mechanic on a farm and eventually joined the U.S. Army during World War I. After his time in the military, he returned to Hallock as a mechanic. He continued self-educating, and with his natural mechanical ability, he was able to grasp the intricacies of electronics. From what he learned he was able to build a transmitter for the town’s radio station. During this period, Jones also invented a device that would revolutionize Cinema. He built a device that could finally combine sound with a motion picture. This actually caught the eye of Joseph A. Numero in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Jones began working for Numero in 1930, helping to improve the firm’s sound equipment.

The First Portable Air-Cooling Unit

Jones continued to invent and expand his understanding of mechanics and electronics. In 1938, he designed the portable air-cooling units used on trucks that carry perishable goods. By 1940, he received a patent for it and Joseph A. Numero decided to sell his Cinema sound equipment firm in order to go into business with Jones. They formed a new company that specialized in refrigerated/cooling units. It became a multi-million dollar company by 1949 with the introduction of the refrigerated truck.

The designs for the portable air-cooling unit were especially important during World War II. They were used to help transport perishable goods throughout the military hospitals and across the open battlefields. It helped preserve food, maintain medicines, and other time-sensitive goods. Medical tents and army hospitals were able to receive blood for their patients. Those on the battlefield didn’t starve to death because they were able to receive supplies due to the portable air-cooling unit.

  • Top Honors and Awards

Jones continued to invent, earning as many as 61 patents in his lifetime. The majority of his inventions were for refrigeration equipment, but his other inventions helped many industries. For instance, he received further patents for portable X-ray machines, improved audio/sound equipment, and more efficient gasoline engines. As an entrepreneur and inventor, it wasn’t long before he got the recognition he deserved. Frederick Mckinley Jones became the first African American to be included in the American Society of Refrigeration-Engineers by 1944. This led to more work in the 1950s, consulting for the U.S. DoD (department of defense) as well as the Bureau of Standards.

Jones passed away in Minneapolis in the early Spring of 1961 after battling cancer. During his lifetime and well after his death, he continued getting the recognition he deserved. By 1977, he was included in Minnesota’s Inventors Hall of Fame. In 1991, his widow was awarded the National Medal of Technology on his behalf. Now known as the National Medal of Technology and Innovation, this medal is considered one of the highest honors awarded to citizens who made significant contributions to technological development. Jones was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2007 for his exceptional patents and work in the field of refrigeration.

5 Fast Facts About Refrigerated Trucks

Refrigerated trucks and vans have contributed to a network of growing delivery markets. They are the perfect resource for businesses looking to deliver quality products and services. A refrigerated truck could mean the difference between your perishable goods making it to the sales floor or the waste bin. Here are five fast facts to provide a deeper understanding of the benefits of a refrigerated truck or customized delivery vehicle.

1. Direct Drive Reliability

Our custom refrigeration solutions are direct drive. This means that our solutions are powered by the vehicle’s engine. With this feature, the refrigeration unit becomes a more reliable delivery vehicle. Furthermore, it can help avoid the added cost of a secondary diesel engine. With this type of design, the direct drive delivers the dependability needed to efficiently transport the goods.

2. Safe Product Transport

Refrigerated trucks have been used to transport a variety of products that range from life-saving medications to live insects and animals. Reefers have been used to transport honey bees and penguins, amongst other things, which need controlled temperatures when being transported between environments. Refrigerated vans and trailers have also benefited tech and electronic companies. Many people are unaware that certain electronic devices need cool to cold temperatures for optimal operating capacity.

Floral delivery companies also utilize refrigerated vans and trailers to keep their products from prematurely wilting. Companies that sell perfume often use refrigerated trucks because the merchandise needs to be maintained at cool temperatures. This prevents the chemicals in the perfumes and colognes from heating up and changing the scent. Galleries, Museums, and Art Firms often rely on refrigerated vehicles to deliver priceless artwork. This is especially important for older art pieces that have temperature sensitive paints, oils, and canvases.

3. Refrigeration and Heating Units

Your truck can have a refrigeration unit or a heating unit to ensure your goods are at the correct temperature during transport. Our direct drive refrigeration units are designed to meet any of your temperature needs. Perfect for folks looking for refrigerated vans with heating units to maintain their live fish en route to the pet store. If you’re looking for a refrigerated unit that can maintain freezing temperatures for meat, poultry, or seafood than consider our direct drive reefers.

Knowing which kind of refrigeration unit will work the best for your company or clients needs is only half the battle. There are two kinds of refrigeration systems available, roof mounted and nose mounted. Nose mounted refrigeration units are ideal for medium sized boxed trucks, trailers, and vans. The unit is installed on the outside front-end of the chassis. This design can make it easier to access the unit for regular maintenance needs. If you have lighter commercial delivery vehicles, like a fleet of vans, using a nose-mounted system may be recommended.

Roof-mounted refrigeration units are ideal for larger vans, trailers, and trucks. The amount of refrigeration needed depends on the average external temperature during transport, the preferred temperature for the products, the amount of heat the products can give off, and the amount of insulation the vehicle has. This type of unit is recommended for companies that specialize in delivering frozen meat, dairy, poultry, or seafood.

4. Reefers

Refrigerated trailers are referred to as reefers for short in the transportation industry. A refrigerated truck and van are also considered reefers for short. Essentially it’s a term used to describe any type of refrigerated delivery vehicle.

There are businesses that have a fleet of reefers, indicating they have several delivery vehicles for their needs. If you’re interested in expanding your delivery chain, consider the fleet options available with ATC.

5. Customize Your Refrigerated Trucks

ATC designs and manufactures the refrigeration units, so we can easily customize a truck refrigeration solution to your client’s unique temperature needs. Floral companies, for instance, benefit from warm and cold temperatures for delivery. This is because of the variety of sensitive tropical plants available. With the right refrigeration unit, you can have multiple customized temperature settings, which is a feature known as dual temperature setting. It is great for various products requiring different temperatures during transport.

The cargo area is customized to accommodate multiple temperature sensitive products. One space is for the merchandise that needs cool temperatures while the other space can maintain a different environment and temperature level. For added convenience, the reefer can be designed with a temperature gauge inside the cargo area and inside the cab. This makes it easier to monitor the temperatures while the driver is en route to their destination.

Are you looking for a refrigerated truck, van, or trailer for your company or clients? Don’t hesitate to contact the experts at ATC for your refrigeration solutions. We’ll match you with a refrigeration unit to meet your needs. Ask our customer service and knowledgeable staff about our top-notch, cost-effective refrigeration solutions.

Refrigerated Trucks Spreading Christmas Cheer

The holidays are here and Christmas is right around the corner. A refrigerated truck, van, and trailer play an important role during the holiday season. Many people may not realize it, but the cold, sometimes freezing temperatures, can negatively impact the products and services being delivered. Don’t let your merchandise go to waste, consider a top of the line refrigerated truck, van, or trailer.

A Refrigerated Truck Delivers Christmas Cheer

What if you couldn’t deliver flowers to friends and/or family over the holidays? Floral companies take advantage of refrigerated vans and small reefer trucks because controlled temperatures play an important part in the life of the plants. Temperatures that are too hot or too cold can result in wilted merchandise, causing huge losses.

Don’t put the goods at risk, take a look at Advanced Temperature Control for refrigeration solutions you can trust through the rough winter months. Rosa Flora and Westbrook Floral Ltd for instance, use ATC’s refrigerated trucks to deliver festive flower arrangements to patrons wanting to wish someone special a Merry Christmas.

Food delivery companies also take advantage of refrigerated vans, trucks, and trailers for perishable bouquets. For example, the popularity of fruit and candy bouquets continues. If the proper temperatures are not maintained, dessert bouquets would be ruined, such as chocolate covered strawberries and yogurt dipped peaches. Candies would melt, fruits would sour,  small businesses would lose money and customers would be disappointed.

Food Delivery Over The Holidays

With the winter months upon us, consumers are starting to look more into ordering their food online for home delivery. Today, you can simply go on your smartphone, click on an APP and order groceries or meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Refrigerated mobile solutions today are capable of maintaining dual temperatures for products that require different settings. Perfect for businesses that need to deliver hot meals while managing to keep desserts chilled or frozen.

Fresh produce, seafood, and meat delivery, all utilize refrigerated trucks, vans, and trailers to maintain the quality of their goods. Foods like fruits, vegetables, salmon, shrimp, beef, and chicken are all temperature sensitive. They require controlled environments to prevent any bacterial growth.

 Foodborne illnesses are a prime example of why it’s important to use a reliable refrigerated truck. Food and safety are a priority concern when it comes to perishable goods and delivery. Bacteria growth on foods could cause serious illnesses such as salmonella, listeria, norovirus, or E. coli.

Finding a reliable refrigeration solution does not have to be a hassle when taking into account these illustrations. At ATC, we stand by our refrigeration solutions and can help folks who are new to reefers or people seeking to upgrade their fleet.

Understanding Your Equipment

It’s important to understand what kind of vehicle would best suit your business needs. Some businesses need refrigerated vans and other companies require refrigerated trucks to transport larger products.

Nose-Mounted Refrigerated Units

These units are commonly used for small or medium-sized refrigerated trucks, vans, and trailers. These units are smaller than roof-mounted ones and are installed on the front-end of the chassis. An installation like this gives you easier access to take care of any maintenance needs. Some examples of companies that utilize nose-mounted refrigerated trucks are floral delivery and frozen meal delivery.

Roof-Mounted Refrigerated Units

These types of units are typically used for large refrigerated trucks, vans, and trailers. Although they are larger than a nose-mounted unit, the power required is necessary to maintain controlled environments for larger deliveries. Some companies that would utilize a roof-mounted unit are dairy delivery, frozen meats, seafood, fish, and poultry companies. These units can also be used on large vans that have been upgraded with extended roofs or for small cargo vans. Small catering businesses and food vendors often use these types of units for their refrigerated truck or van.

Imagine Life Without Refrigerated Trucks

Trying to operate a business without the right delivery vehicles to transport your goods may be tough; especially if those products require colder temperatures during transport. A refrigerated truck would be the most recommended choice when it comes to transporting temperature sensitive items. Meat, dairy, flowers, and medicines are only a few examples of products that are delivered safely using reefers. Attempting to transport such items without refrigerated trucks is difficult to imagine.

Finding a refrigerated truck to meet all your needs is not a daunting task when you know where to look. Advanced Temperature Control (ATC) has over 27 years of experience with truck and van refrigeration systems. Our experts can help determine the best possible method to use for refrigerated trucks or vans.

Life Without Refrigerated Trucks

Refrigerated truck and van systems have a wide array of applications when it comes to transportation and delivery. They are often used in the floral industry as well as bakery, meat, dairy, and other food transport companies. Refrigerated trucks are an efficient way of maintaining fresh products and temperature sensitive freight. Keeping products maintained at precise temperatures during transport helps ensure a smooth delivery whether they are used for large chain suppliers, local shops, or individual business owners.

Life without refrigerated trucks would make it difficult for many industries to safely transport their time and temperature sensitive goods and the following short list are examples of businesses that would not be as successful without refrigerated reefer trucks.

Food Industry

The food industry would be impacted greatly without refrigerated trucks because perishable foods are extremely time sensitive. Without the use of refrigerated trucks, there would be a limited amount of perishable food items compared to what is seen in most grocery stores today. Businesses that deal with fresh or frozen food products would be affected including large chain grocery stores, locally owned markets, and individually owned delivery vehicles, food trucks and carts.

The advent of online ordering has helped increase the need for high performance refrigerated transport vehicles. Some prime examples of online orders that contribute to the need for reefers are home grocery delivery, catering services, and restaurant delivery. Other common uses for refrigerated vehicles include seafood, poultry, and bakery delivery as well as snack and vending services.

Imagining life without refrigerated trucks would be like trying to imagine life without grocery stores. Meat and dairy products that need to be transported great distances would spoil. Ice cream would melt, so the idea of ice cream trucks would be a distant dream. Catering businesses and grocery/meal drop-off companies would find it more challenging to deliver fresh goods or edible arrangements.

Floral Industry

The floral industry relies on temperature controlled environments when delivering potted plants and freshly cut flowers. Many floral and gardening shops use refrigerated vans and trucks to deliver fresh products to their customers. Without the advantages of a refrigerated transport vehicle, flowers and plants would wither and die faster. Virtually every flower shop would have to say goodbye to delicate deliveries of freshly cut bouquets.

 

Medical Supply

Many people forget that the medical supply industry utilizes refrigerated trucks and vans when transporting temperature sensitive substances and materials. Certain medicines often require chilled environments whether they are in the medical lab or not. This means the transportation of life-saving medicines would be non-existent without the advent of safe refrigerated transport. It would be harsh to imagine life without refrigerated trucks/vans, especially when taking into account hospitals full of suffering patients who cannot get access to the medicine they need.

Electronics/Technology

The electronics industry often requires cooler temperatures for their products. This is because items such as set-top boxes, modems, and servers operate best in air-conditioned/cooler environments. This helps prevent overheating and prolongs the life of that piece of technology. Companies that require onboard computers and servers would no longer be able to operate their equipment efficiently if they did not have access to a refrigerated truck, van, or trailer.


Ask The Experts

ATC has the expertise to provide you with all of your truck refrigeration needs whether the products need to stay fresh, cool, or frozen. We also offer dual temperature settings for folks that need a reefer to transport both frozen and fresh goods. These options allow smooth transportation for trucks delivering frozen meat and fresh dairy products.

Acquiring the right refrigerated truck or van depends on the services that you offer or the type of freight that will be delivered. We offer rooftop and nose mounted units for van and truck systems, designed to perform and built to last with top-of-line upgrades to keep up with the competitive nature of today’s delivery services. Life without refrigerated trucks and vans does not have to be a reality, just contact ATC to help with your product transportation needs.

The Importance of Customized Van Refrigeration

Many businesses have built their foundation on the performance of their specialized vehicles, particularly those that utilize truck and van refrigeration. As technology continues to grow, newer, more innovative methods are being developed to improve their efficiency. This includes using the most effective ways to customize reefers. There are several factors you want to consider while exploring customized truck or van refrigeration options:

Cargo Differences

Before customizing your cargo vehicle, you must consider what kind of refrigeration is needed. For example, frozen goods, dairy products, food, and floral services all require different temperature controls to maintain the product. It is important to recognize those needs in order to implement the right customization for truck or van refrigeration.

There are several viable options that can help improve fuel economy and storage capacity. When it comes to customizing the interior of the vehicle, consider options like adjustable shelving, pre-kitting, wireless tracking, and dual cargo temperature controls.

Pre-kitting allows the drivers to consolidate their routes and lower truck inventory. This helps transition to smaller vehicles with better fuel efficiency and fewer maintenance costs. Businesses today are taking advantage of technology growth and aligning their products or services to grow with it. Pre-kitting is a popular method of increasing revenue, saving on operation costs, and improving payload efficiency. 

Wireless tracking is another growing trend that allows operators to monitor their customized van refrigeration units. With this tool, they are able to keep track of the vehicle’s speed and idle time. Additionally, it helps keep track of fuel economy and the fuel cost needed to operate your fleet.

Temperature Adjustments


Customized van refrigeration does not have to be a difficult and confusing process that exceeds your wallet. Having a top-notch temperature display and system controller that saves on energy costs is only one of the customization benefits offered at Advanced Temperature Controls. Mobile refrigeration has been able to keep up with advancing technologies, which includes ways of saving on energy costs while improving operational efficiency. With these types of customizations, you can easily track temperature variances with a digital temperature control system, with displays in the cargo area and in the cab. 

Proper Insulation

Proper insulation is an integral part of the customization process because it helps maximize desired temperature retention. Consideration in design to enable “the box” or cargo area to breath and vent moisture is necessary to prevent mold. High-performance van refrigeration units most often utilize the top of the line high-density foam insulation to gain that reputation. Having proper insulation in your reefer prevents exterior temperatures from getting in while preventing interior temperatures from escaping. Insulation maintains the desired temperatures for quality cargo refrigeration needs and protects products from getting contaminated or damaged by preventing air, heat, or moisture from getting in.

Roof Mounted versus Nose Mounted Systems

If you are using small, medium or large vans or trucks, customizing your reefer with a roof mounted unit would be the ideal choice. Having a delivery fleet of frozen products, soft drinks, or dairy products that use vans, for instance, would require certain specifications. The amount of insulation and recommended temperatures of the products during transport would need to be taken into account. Furthermore, the average outdoor temperature and the amount of heat the products actually give off will need to be considered. Once these factors are figured out, the amount of refrigeration for the unit can be decided.

For larger boxed trucks or trailers a nose-mounted refrigeration unit would be recommended and requires unique reinforcements in the front wall to support the weight or the unit.

Direct drive refrigeration units are great for food service delivery, dairy treats, and floral services. With customized van refrigeration from Advanced Temperature Controls, you will not have to worry about having fewer options than a diesel powered system. Operators will have just as many benefits, like easy access temperature controls, great fuel economy, and smooth operation.

Choosing Van Refrigeration Solutions
