Perishable Foods Transportation

Utilizing Temperature Controlled Trucks to Deliver Perishable Food Loads Safely & Timely

The temperature inside our reefers is adjusted to the unique needs of your perishable goods cargo. We will adjust the temperature to suit your unique needs. For example, the ideal temp for transporting seafood is -1.0°C (30.2°F), dairy is 4°C (39.2°F), meat is 4°C (40°F). 

ET Transport has been transporting food for major retailers and manufacturers for the past 15+ years. We are confident that we can help you ship your load as well.
