Refrigerated trucking, (also referred to as “reefer”) is a freight shipping method that specializes in the transportation of foods and products that require a temperature-controlled means of transport. The trailer that is hauling the food and other products has a built-in refrigeration system to keep any and all products in their pre-shipped state.
DRY VAN TRUCKING
A dry van is a type of semi-trailer that’s fully enclosed to protect shipments from outside elements. Designed to carry palletized, boxed or loose freight, dry vans aren’t temperature-controlled (unlike refrigerated “reefer” units) and can’t carry oversized shipments (unlike flatbed trailers). Also called a “dry van trailer” or “box trailer,” dry vans can be used for a variety of less-than-truckload (LTL) or truckload shipment types. If you’ve ever shipped or received freight, it’s likely your goods traveled on a dry van.
POWER ONLY TRUCKING
Power Only trucking is a service in which Naame Trucking carriers pull third-party trailers containing a shipper’s freight. It’s a simple way to increase capacity while still receiving the benefits that come with Naame Trucking’s high level of service. Power Only can be added to a shipper’s standard Naame Trucking service to meet a temporary demand, or it can become part of a long-term solution.
Commercial vehicles that have a flat platform rather than an enclosed trailer are called flatbed trucks. The benefit of this type of truck is that it allows trucking companies to transport large or unusually-shaped freight. Because this type of trailer has an open deck, the driver must tie down cargo with chains or straps in order to ensure it is secure. A tarp may also be necessary to protect the goods and materials from damage during transit.
