TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED LTL
In colder months, fluctuating temperatures outdoors can create a wide array of problems for less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments that may be sensitive to temperatures below 32 degrees. When you have sensitive freight that must stay in a temperature-controlled environment, you need a refrigerated LTL Shipment. This is the most complex transportation mode in the logistics industry, due to its limitations and complexities.While many shipping providers are not able to accommodate these shipments, Fruition Logistics specializes in exactly that. Fruition Logistics is known for specializing in temperature controlled Less-than-Truckload (LTL) shipments. Through this unique service we offer, we have the ability to service your requests when you are educated about the intricacies of this type of transportation. Because of these complexities, we feel it is imperative that you understand what refrigerated shipments are, how you can use them, and how you can interact with your refrigerated LTL carrier.
Refrigerated LTL is the process of shipping refrigerated or temperature-controlled freight that does not require the space of a full truckload (FTL). These trailers have heavy-duty door seals and insulated walls, which keeps the contents inside from perishing or deteriorating.
Contents in a refrigerated LTL are typically perishable items, such as: food products, animal products, almond beverages, plants, plant protein, and dairy products.
Refrigerated LTL has built-in refrigerated systems with temperature controls to ensure no deterioration happens. These trucks are not necessarily cooling or freezing the freight, instead they have the ability to maintain any required temperature as a means of protecting precious cargo.
You may ask yourself: “How does LTL benefit my business?” This can be a major benefit for all businesses who do not or cannot ship full truckloads. It is especially important for businesses who want to ship small quantities of perishables. Companies often cannot afford to wait to “fill up” an entire truckload—because the goods may deteriorate or perish in the meantime. The Refrigerated LTL carrier system enables you to send a smaller batch of goods that ensures your products will be delivered in the same quality as you shipped them.
