Transport Refrigeration is essential in today's society. Whether your market is Dairy, FMCG, Fruit and Veg or Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Products.
Broughton Transport Solutions based in Wiltshire offers refrigerated transport throughout the UK and Europe.
Our market has been helped by the increase in the number of eateries, which has driven the growth for the refrigerated road transport market.
Transport refrigeration equipment, generally, is designed to maintain temperature, not to cool down goods, so goods should be loaded already pre-cooled to carriage temperature. Exceptions are shipments of bananas and citrus fruit, for which appropriate cooling regimes are established.
