Freeze Protection


What is Freeze Protection?

Freeze protection services are meant to protect temperature-sensitive freight from being exposed to harsh conditions. Some freight commodities are overly sensitive to frigid temperatures.

Freeze Protection Services

Many carriers provide freeze protection services which include monitoring the external temperatures and facilitate special operation procedures. These include placing freezable freight on fast-moving networks, providing warm storage rooms all across the network, and making use of Accelerated Services. At Heavy Equipment Transport, we go above and beyond to ensure that your freight gets to its destination quickly and uncompromised. If you plan of shipping any of the following commodities, do not hesitate to seek our freezing protection services.

Other commodities such as electronics and various types of wood furniture are also sensitive to extreme weather conditions. Please note that most products are freezable but freeze protection services do not cover all of them. Therefore, it is crucial that you consult your freight agent about where your freight falls before making a booking. Also, ensure that your cargo's specific freeze protection service needs are well laid down on the freight label and bill of lading.
