    What Is Reefer Truck Dispatching?

    Reefer trucks are used for transporting temperature sensitive products. They are insulated and have a refrigeration system that keeps the cargo cool. A reefer truck is a container that is insulated to protect cargo from freezing during shipment. The refrigeration process uses low-pressure gas to produce cold air within the enclosure. This process may be powered by diesel or electricity.

    A reefer truck may also have “double-deck cooling,” which can use both electric and diesel power for cooling purposes.

    Reefer truck dispatching is the process of finding the most suitable reefer truck for a shipment or load. It is a complex process as there can be many variables like distance, weight, size, cost, and time. For example, if you need to transport ice cream from New York to California, you will want to find the cheapest truck for this job because it will take longer than if you needed an ice cream delivery in New York City. And so the distance will be shorter and the weight will be lower.
