Temperature Controlled Freight Shipping

Temperature Controlled Shipping

Looking to ship cargo that’s sensitive to temperature changes? We can help. At Amplify Logistics, we specialize in flexible temperature control shipping solutions. On the road, your freight may be exposed to all kinds of elements.

A regular trailer may not offer the kind of protection your shipment needs while on transit. It may be summer in the mountains and extremely cold in the flatlands. The hot temperature can make the interior of a standard trailer boiling hot. Since weather can change instantly, it’s important to transport your freight in temperature-controlled shipping trailers.

At Amplify Logistics, we’ve been in the industry for far too long to leave anything to chance when dealing with temperature-sensitive cargo. We understand all the temperature variations that are common when covering long distances and take all the measures to keep your goods safe. For many years, we’ve been transporting similar goods and getting them to their final destination in the same condition as when they were loaded.

Temperature Controlled Freight Shipping in North America

Are you looking for a reliable way to transport perishables or cargo that’s highly sensitive to temperature changes? At Amplify Logistics, we offer reliable transportation for temperature controlled freight. We know how important it is for businesses and individuals to find a shipping method that’s tailored to their needs. We offer a range of freight shipping options so you never have to keep your client’s waiting or encounter unnecessary delays in your business.

What to expect in temperature controlled freight shipping

At Amplify Logistics, we strive to help our clients find a temperature control courier who fits their needs. We offer temperature controlled transportation for cargo that needs special handling and storage, such as flowers, fresh produce or pharmaceuticals. These items are sensitive to temperature changes and there’s a high risk of damage should things go wrong. We prioritize sensitive shipments and work with the right carriers to ensure that the cargo maintains stable temperatures from one dock to another.

Efficiently shipping temperature sensitive items

To determine the most efficient way to ship your temperature-sensitive cargo, we’ll need all the information necessary regarding the type of items being delivered and if there are some that are more perishable than others. Sometimes items that are temperature sensitive also have unique security requirements. We’ll need all this information beforehand in order to identify a cross border courier who is able to provide a tailored solution. The more sensitive an item is, the higher the cost of shipping it. This is why we recommend the standard shipping options for less sensitive items. Combining sensitive items and standard cargo in one shipment may cost you a lot more. Amplify Logistics can help you to determine what shipping methods are best for your unique needs.

How do I know if I need temperature controlled shipping?

For perishable items, temperature controlled transportation is a must to avoid deterioration over time. If you are transporting items that are likely to get damaged when exposed to certain environmental conditions like high temperatures or humidity then you can’t use the standard shipping option. Some of the most common types of cargo we’ve transported as temperature sensitive include:
• Pharmaceuticals
• Seafood
• Fruits and vegetables

• Meat and dairy products
• Plants

How is temperature-sensitive freight packaged?

There are different packaging methods for items that are sensitive to temperature fluctuations. For road shipments, the items are loaded in a temperature controlled truck that comes fully equipped with all the facilities needed to maintain the required temperature. These trucks are designed with layers of insulation in the walls to maintain steady temperatures. Additionally, the items can be protected against heat transfer on transit by covering them with materials like polyurethane foam or radiant barrier films. In other cases, a gel coolant or dry ice is added to the item prior to packaging in order to keep it cool during transportation.
