Chilled/Frozen Freight

Frozen or chilled freight includes transporting temperature-controlled products in special trucks called reefers that are fully insulated and have a specific environment. This temperature-controlled supply chain is referred to as Cold Supply Chain and includes the following products:

  • Food items:
    • Fruits, vegetables
    • Seafood, meat, poultry, dairy
    • Ready to eat and processed food, including café and deli items
    • High-end food products
  • Flowers/plants
  • Sensitive electrical goods, including photographic films

The temperature range for the products can be divided as follows:

Product categoryTemperature Range (in ºC)
Deep Frozen: meat, seafood-28 to -30
Frozen meat/food products-16 to -20
Chilled: Fruits, vegetables, dairy products2 to 4
Chilled: Food produce (bakery items), certain drugs12 to 14

Due to the geographical isolation of New Zealand, approximately 45% of products are exported in frozen/chilled states. Industries leading in chilled/frozen freight include the meat, dairy, horticulture, and seafood industry. Therefore, for maintaining supply and demand levels of these industries, there is a high demand for chilled/frozen freight for shippers and carriers within New Zealand.
