Insulated trailers are designed for transportation of commodities at controlled temperatures. A majority of insulated trailers are equipped with a refrigeration unit; insulated van trailers without refrigeration units are estimated to account for only 10% of the total. Insulated trailers without heating or cooling units are used when the product transported needs moderate temperature control, while bodies with heater units are used to deliver temperature-sensitive products such as flowers and electronics in places with sub-zero temperatures.
The refrigerated trailer market is relatively a more stable segment when compared to other van categories such as dry-freight, as it caters to core requirements—food and health care products. The food industry weathers downturns better than most other industries and therefore, while demand for refrigerated van trailers is affected by general economic downturns, it is less elastic than other trailer categories.
