ReeferTek USA’s new van conversion process lowers weight, fuel consumption

Jan. 22, 2019
ReeferTek USA recently introduced a manufacturing process designed to minimize total vehicle weight.

ReeferTek USA, a national manufacturer of refrigerated vans, recently introduced a manufacturing process designed to minimize total vehicle weight.

Using 'innovative' technology, lighter materials and a proprietary production process, ReeferTek says it's able to reduce the conversion weight by 23.6%. A lighter vehicle consumes less fuel and in doing so saves money.

“This is a major milestone in the refrigerated van industry,” said Michael Leibman, president of ReeferTek USA. “A lighter-weight van allows customers to increase their load capacity and deliver more products. It’s all about efficiency and cost savings. Not only are the vans lighter, they are stronger and more durable than competitive vehicles on the market. A lot of research and development went into this product.  We’ve listened to feedback from customers and integrated their requests into these eco-friendly refrigerated vans.“

ReeferTek said it developed this technology in its newest location in Oakland Park FL.

“South Florida is the perfect market to introduce these vehicles,” Leibman said. “The climate and traffic congestion will allow customers to immediately benefit from the additional load capacity and improved fuel efficiency.”

This proprietary production process can also be applied to the conversion of dry truck bodies to reefer bodies with the same fuel saving benefits.

These new refrigerated van products include a seamless interior, anti-microbial liners, spray foam insulation, LED lighting and a number of customizable options including adjustable shelves, straps, curtains, van wraps and reefer units. All make and model cargo vans are available immediately for refrigerated conversion through ReeferTek USA.
