New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2016 -- Refrigerated trailers are add-on units equipped with thermal insulation and temperature control mechanisms for the purpose of transportation of food and pharmaceutical products, as well as horticulture produce to some extent. The rapid growth of the food and beverage industry has benefitted several associated business sectors, such as heavy machinery, fabrication and packaging, and transportation and logistics, to name a few. With novelty and innovation being the recipe for success in the food and beverage industry, the means needed for these products to reach the end user is vitally important. This is to preserve the quality and minimize spoilage of edible products, especially foods and beverages that need to be kept at low temperatures due to their perishability or due to their unique formulations.
