Why Refrigerated Hot Shot Shipping Is So Important

Posted by Kayla Palesky on Mon, Apr 15, 2019 @ 09:55 PM

All year round, clients in Texas use our refrigerated hot shot shipping services. The interior of our refrigerated trucks stays at the same temperature in winter and in summer. The challenge in Texas is that the summers can be really hot. Without proper refrigeration, any goods being transported are at risk of being damaged.

Even if it is a balmy 85°F outside, the temperature inside a delivery truck can easily go over 100°F in a matter of minutes. The damage that this can cause to goods being shipped is significant. Obviously, things that must remain cold or frozen require transport in a refrigerated truck. Additionally, items that don’t necessarily have to be cold, but can’t get hot either, require a refrigerated delivery.

Bloomin' Bluebonnets, It's Finally Spring!

Posted by Kayla Palesky on Wed, Apr 03, 2019 @ 06:04 PM

Sure, the calendar might say it’s spring. The weather might even say it’s spring (for the next few hours, at least). But is it really spring before the Bluebonnets have bloomed? A true Texan would say “no”.

 

When you’re a critical distance courier like our Eagle Express Fort Worth team, the Texas highways can get long, desolate, and downright ugly. Somewhere between here and Austin, on the I-35 going south, a driver could just about get lost in the brown surroundings. Not our drivers, of course. Our Eagle drivers are hand selected, expertly trained, and on time for 98% of deliveries. Even so, when Bluebonnet season hits, it sure is a sight for sore eyes for those couriers moving your time and temperature sensitive goods outside of the Metroplex to their final destinations within the great state of Texas or beyond.

Did You Know Refrigerated Hot Shot Deliveries Are a Thing?

Posted by Kayla Palesky on Mon, Apr 01, 2019 @ 05:02 PM

We call our refrigerated Hot Shot deliveries in Fort Worth, Texas "hot shot" in reference to how fast the deliveries get to their destination. Shipping by our refrigerated trucks also could be called be "cool shot" deliveries because of the stable temperature maintained for the cargo being carried by the truck.

Because the outside temperatures can get very high in Texas, especially during the summer, the temps can destroy temperature-sensitive cargo which is not protected by refrigeration during transport. With refrigerated Hot Shot deliveries, you set the desired temperature you want. You can choose the temperature control your delivery requires—from below freezing to ice-cold to a pleasant room temperature.

Without refrigeration, the temperature inside a truck driving down the roads in Texas can easily get to over 115°F in a matter of minutes. If you need to ship anything that cannot withstand heat, do yourself a favor and use our refrigerated Hot Shot deliveries to keep your precious cargo from undergoing damaged from the heat or melting.
