In this video, you will learn the essentials of reefer transportation, especially if you have started your own business. The reefer freight industry is challenging, but it’s not impossible. If you’re willing to learn the ropes, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to make a good living in this industry.
For a start, determine the kind of reefer you want to use. If it’s a flatbed, you will have to adjust your trailer hitch to fit on the back of your truck. You must use a cradle system to hold the trailer up if it’s a box truck.
The next thing is to find out how much space you have between the bottom of your box truck and the ground. If there isn’t enough room for your load, you might consider adding some platform or steps extending from underneath your trailer hitch into space. Finally, the broker supplies all the information about your shipment, including the movement of goods between locations or countries. The reefer transportation industry has safety standards for drivers and customers, which means that more people use reefer transportation without worrying about the risks involved.
