Freon™ Refrigerants for Transport Refrigeration Units

Maintaining the Fresh and Safe Delivery of Perishable Goods

Foods, medicines, and other perishable goods require consistent refrigeration throughout their lifecycles. Refrigerated container, truck, and trailer systems keep these supplies fresh in transit, preserving goods from production to delivery.

The transportation refrigeration industry relies on a range of cooling systems to deliver goods locally and nationally. Long-haul transport uses large refrigerated trucks, containers, and tractor trailers to deliver consistent, efficient cooling. Smaller trucks moving goods from distribution centers to individual locations also require reliable refrigeration.

Freon™ refrigerants continue to deliver proven high-quality, high-performance, and reliable refrigeration for the transport of perishable goods. Additionally, transport refrigeration original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and service companies select Freon™ refrigerants because of its outstanding brand assurance, technical support, ensured supply availability, and industry knowledge.
