THE COLD BOX

The Cold Box Express logoThe Cold Box allows you to pay for only the refrigerated space you need and may be consolidated with dry cargo to eliminate expensive refrigerated LTL and dedicated shipment costs.

Our self-powered, palletized shipping container employs a high-efficiency compression cooling system for refrigeration when the ambient or outside temperature is warmer than the payload. Our container also has an electric heating element to prevent payload freezing when the outside temperature is at or below freezing. A high performance ‘hybrid’ insulation structure allows for thin sidewall panels and door construction to maximize the cargo hold compartment. Our containers will accept either a standard 40” x 48” GMA pallet or our custom reusable aluminum pallets.

Our container is equipped with GPS & GSM Global tracking and location with 24/7 REAL-TIME multi-parameter payload data collection, monitoring, and reporting. Immediate real- time communications of data and location with no software or programming required improves shipment visibility with automated event and excursion communications via SMS text or email. A smartphone or tablet application is also available. The Cold Box will run indefinitely on AC line power and may be used as a stationary cold storage unit for critical materials.
