Our trailers provide both refrigeration and heat service with a range of 85F to -20F (27C to -28C), and all meet HACCP food grade standards. We use technology that allows us to centrally monitor and ensure the required temperatures are maintained. Additionally, we operate high capacity cold reefers with the ability for a deeper freeze to accommodate dairy and ice cream products.
Refrigerated Transport Services
Professional Carriers provides our customers with the most consistently safe, reliable, and professional refrigerated transport services in the truckload transportation marketplace.

Non-Temperature Transport Services
Our primary cargo is food, beverages and associated ingredients. However a number of our customers have selected us to provide transportation for their non-temperature products as well due to the benefit of the Tridem Advantage.
On-Time Performance & Tracking
Load Security & Protection
The Tridem Advantage
A Tridem trailer consists of 3 axles rather than the standard 2 axles. The third axle allows for approximately an extra 18% payload in most Canadian regions.
- Less impact on loading weight during spring thaw restrictions
- Over 80% of our fleet is tridems
- Very cost effective for our Canadian customers
Multi-Temperature Specialized Service
A multi-temp trailer has 2 temperature output evaporators and a moveable cold wall to create 2 compartments which can maintain 2 different temperatures. This specialized equipment is most often used to haul fresh and frozen product in the same load.
- Moveable cold wall allows you to customize each temperature compartments size to meet your specific load needs.
- All our Multi-Temp Trailers are tridem to allow for greater product weights within Canada.
- The temperature in each compartment is maintained and monitored separately.
- We have invested in this specialized equipment to provide a broader range of services to our customers
A tandem trailer has 2 axles and can run in any market; however the majority of our tandem fleet runs in the USA, as our Canadian customers prefer the greater payloads of the tridem advantage we offer.
Because of the temperature controlled equipment we provide, the majority of our freight is refrigerated or heated. Our primary cargo is food, beverages and associated ingredients. On our Tandem trailer we also carry non-temperature commodities.
Tridem & Multi-Temp Fleet
Tridem and Multi-Temp are the majority of our fleet which allows us to provide” temperature-controlled freight service, coast to coast within Canada. We transport commodities between Atlantic, Central and Western Canada; as well as between Canada, Washington and Oregon states.
Our tandem refrigerated transport services operate primarily between Atlantic Canada and the South-East, North-East and Mid-West USA. Additionally, we operate into California from Atlantic and Western Canada.
On-Time Performance and Tracking
Our 3-year average on-time delivery performance is 98.3%. We accomplish this by utilizing our satellite tracking to monitor your load’s progress and proactively take action to correct any delays when possible. When delays cannot be avoided, we will contact you as early as possible to advise you of the delay and our plan to minimize it.
Load Security & Protection
The cornerstones of our security plan are:
- Separate tracking systems of both trucks and trailers to ensure our trailers are monitored and tracked at all times, even when not connected to a truck.
- Minimize the number of people handling and accountable for the product, by providing sealed point to point service.
- Take a very proactive approach by all, including management, anytime a load is required to sit enroute, to ensure all precautions and monitoring measures are in place, such as satellite geofences, which alert us to unscheduled load movements.
- Train drivers well on security requirements and provide them with frequent security reminders.
Commitment to Safety
We take safety very seriously and are proactive in our approach to ensuring all of our employees and refrigerated transport equipment meet our safety standards.
- Equipment is inspected daily.
- All trucks are inspected every 90 days by certified mechanics.
- All equipment is sanitized and cleaned in between loads.
We seek out the best and most experienced drivers in the refrigerated transport industry because experienced owner-operators know how to avoid hazardous situations allowing Professional Carriers to provide the best service, claims, and safety results.
