Our fleet of temperature controlled reefer trailers safely transport frozen and refrigerated cargo, compliant with FDA standards. We can ship climate-controlled freight at temperatures as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit. We can transport a vast range of perishables, including meat, eggs, dairy, fish, fruits, vegetables, beverages, medical supplies, flowers, donated blood, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, vaccines, and medical supplies. Satellite tracking lets us remotely set and monitor the temperature, location, security, and safety of your load. You can count on Keller Trucking to manage the intricate logistics of reefer trucking that continuously controls temperature and humidity to prevent spoilage while meeting strict shipping deadlines.
Dedicated Contract Carriage
In these times of volatile truck capacity, dedicated contract carriage service is one of the fastest growing segments of the trucking industry, used by all major players from Walmart to Kroger even though they have their private fleets. Now more than ever, having contracted access to capacity and well-trained drivers from Keller Trucking should be considered as part of your transportation strategy without worrying about the upfront investment in equipment, technology, hiring, training, maintenance, adherence to regulations, route optimization, dispatch, or the liability. As your turnkey transportation solution, we supply well-trained and well-managed trucks and drivers, while you schedule pickup and oversee delivery through our advanced tracking system. Our continual commitment to maximizing efficiency has led to 40% reduced driver turnover, 11% improved billing ratio, 8% empty mile reduction, and 5.6% increase in revenue per mile for our partners.
