Question

I have seen a video regarding the proper loading and use of a reefer trailer for hauling various produce, and UC Davis was listed on the credits.  I am considering using a reefer trailer with my semi truck and am trying to learn as much as I can regarding this subject. Do you have any publications, books, videos regarding this subject - or can you recommend some appropriate sources? (B.B.)

Answer

We have quite a few resources that you might find useful, please take a look at the following items:

A booklet “Refrigerated Trailer Transport of Perishable Produce”.

A video entitled “Loading Makes a Difference”.

Also, we have a number of free articles about transportation of produce.

Best wishes on your endeavors!
