The Long-Distance Refrigerated Trucking industry has experienced solid gains over the past five years, which have helped offset the decline it faced during the recession due to contractions in general manufacturing production and personal consumption. Continuing its upward swing, the industry is expected to continue strongly improving as Americans increasing purchase frozen food, fruits, vegetables, meat, beef, cosmetics, flowers and other temperature-sensitive products.
Enterprises in the industry provide long-distance refrigerated trucking services, moving climate-sensitive products ranging from meat and poultry to pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, among other goods. Goods are typically transported from manufacturers to wholesalers and retailers throughout the country. This industry excludes any regional transportation services that can be completed in under a day.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
