WINNIPEG, Man. — Bison Transport has added 50 new multi-temp trailers to its fleet, in addition to its existing dry van, heated and single-temp refrigerated trailers. The addition brings Bison’s temperature-controlled fleet of trailers to more than 1,300 units, including 900 heaters and 400 refrigerated trailers.
Multi-temp trailers are equipped with multiple evaporator units and removable walls designed to divide the trailer space into different compartments each with their own specific temperature.
“Many perishables require a precise temperature for optimal food safety. A shipment of fresh meat, produce, dairy products, or frozen French fries all require different temperatures. These multi temp units allow us to divide the trailer into sections and establish the unique temperature required for each compartment. We are then able to ship a variety of food products all in the same trailer,” says Don Streuber president and CEO.
Bison says each of the units are air-ride tandem trailers, equipped with pintle hooks for long combination vehicle (LCV) operations. Bison operates the largest LCV operation in Canada, generating more than 1,000,000 miles every month.
