What temperature do my products or items need to be at?

Certain vans will have individual temperature controllers, and there are different temperatures for different requirements. For example, if you are transporting flowers, then your temperature needs will be totally different to those of the pharmaceutical sector. It’s essential that you choose the right refrigerated van for your individual company’s needs.

We recommend that you consider the temperature that is needed for your products, what exactly will you be transporting? What temperature will you need to maintain for the journey to ensure that your goods will be OK. It’s important that this is one of the main things that you consider before you choose your refrigeration van.


For food and catering items, whether they are going to be hot or cold during transport, the temperature will depend entirely on the product or foot item itself. Fridge and cooler vans can carry food that will need to be stored at a temperature over zero degrees. Freezer vans are built to maintain lower temperatures, as a catering firm we recommend that you go for a dual temperature vehicle as this can support a range of goods, all at the same time.


Handling and transporting samples includes strict protocols, samples should be kept at the necessary temperature and in a similar quality condition of the sample’s time of sampling. Refrigerated vans with partitions are a great option, or vehicles with dual refrigeration units will be best suited for these products. This is so that samples can be kept at a constant temperature.


When it comes to transporting pharmaceuticals such as medicines or equipment, it’s essential that they’re stored in the most hygienic way, they should be at a constant cool temperature. If they are not then they will be seen as unsafe to use. A fridge van that has different compartments and can provide different temperatures is going to be the best option for this. We also advise considering a van that has a backup power source for emergencies, these types of vehicles will be best suited for this industry sector.

When you have more information about the items and goods that you’ll be transporting, you’ll be more clued up on the temperatures and van specifics that you’ll need.
