When transporting time and temperature sensitive goods, having efficient and reliable vans is absolutely critical. Imagine what would happen if your vans transported at the wrong temperature, operated inefficiently or even broke down on the way to an urgent delivery.
We make sure all our refrigerated vans are the best in the business to ensure that we can provide our customers with the highest levels of service. To help you do the same we’ve identified five important qualities to look for when choosing a refrigerated van.
Accurate Temperature Monitoring
Transporting at the wrong temperature can have serious implications for a business, particularly those in the pharmaceutical and food industries. Chemical alterations can take place in these products if they move outside their recommended temperature range. The result of this could mean infective or spoiled products and result in rejected loads.
All of our vans are able to carry goods at controlled temperature ranges including:
- Chilled (2°c – 8°c)
- Ambient (15°c – 25°c)
Our clients are also able to monitor this information remotely for complete peace of mind.
Capability to Support Multi Temperature Consignments
Transporting multiple consignments on one delivery is a great way to reduce costs, but what if your consignments have different temperature requirements? Dual temperature technology takes care of this problem and means that you can support multi temperature products on one delivery to provide you with a cost-effective transport solution.
Even the best vans that money can buy need maintenance, everything from regular services to frequent cleans. Your van is a reflection on your business and should be taken care of to ensure it looks good and performs efficiently.
It is particularly important that your temperature monitoring devices are working as they should. We ensure ours are calibrated once a year to confirm they are working effectively.
We all know that the latest vehicle models come armed with innovative automotive technologies. From more efficient engines to driving safety features, it can really pay to acquire new vehicles for your commercial fleet.
All our vans meet the highest specifications so that our customers can benefit from the latest mod-cons.
The Right Size
Bigger isn’t always better and sometimes a smaller van will be better suited to your needs. If you are transporting small consignments, such as medication, then in many cases you will not need to use a large van. Similarly if you are dropping off individual orders, or making frequent deliveries to pharmacies and healthcare facilities, a small van is ideal.
Having the right size van gives you a more efficient approach in terms of fuel costs and will help you save on your cost per delivery.
