Enterprise Refrigerated Commercial Truck

The Enterprise refrigerated cargo trucks are just the different versions of their trucks with a refrigerated unit attached to the truck. The two options that Enterprise offers for refrigerated trucks are the 16′ and the 24′ trucks. While Enterprise does have 15′ and 26′ trucks, they don’t offer these trucks with refrigeration units added to them.

However, when it comes to renting refrigerated trucks, you are only able to do this if you are going to need to be doing so commercially. So, to rent these trucks, you have to be part of a company that is renting. Otherwise, you will be unable to rent the Enterprise refrigerated trucks. However, they do have refrigerated vans, which you can rent.

Ryder Commercial Refrigerated Truck

Regarding Ryder truck rental, you have three different options of trucks you can rent. The refrigerated box truck, a refrigerated truck, and a refrigerated trailer.

When your commercial load is temperature-sensitive, rent a refrigerated straight truck from Ryder. These rentals work for light-duty or medium-duty loads, with a cab-over truck design for improved maneuverability. This truck is only available for business customers. 

Rent the reefer box truck, and maneuver refrigerated shipments with ease, even in crowded urban areas. This light-duty truck – available only to commercial customers – features a low cab-over design to support a tighter turning radius for improved handling and easy parking. With a refrigerated box truck rental from Ryder, you gain the load capacity you need with the fuel efficiency and lower emissions you want.

Truck rental customers with temperature-sensitive loads rely on this dry van trailer for long-haul commercial success. The refrigerated semi-trailer features heavy-duty duct floors and extra insulation to increase temperature control. Enjoy all the benefits of working with the transportation leader.

Penske Commercial Refrigerated Truck

The 16′ light-duty commercial rental truck is easy to park and maneuver and was designed to handle congested urban streets. The cab-forward design allows these trucks to turn on a dime yet still hold a payload capacity of up to 7,200 lbs.
