Our Refrigerated Truck Sizes & Features

Choose Your Temperature

Choose a refrigerated vehicle that suits your temperature needs. We have a variety of fridge trucks that can be set from between +5 to -20 degrees to suit an array of dry, chilled and frozen goods across all South African market segments.

Ferry Mixed Loads With Ease

At Albatross we realise that you might need to ferry a variety of goods in one load to cut down on refrigerated truck rental cost. This is why our trucks have been fitted with cooling units that allow for multi-temperature loads.

Various Power Options

All our refrigerated trucks include truck, AC and built-in diesel generator power options. That means your produce can stay at just the right temperature – whether you’re setting up a food truck or hitting the road for a long haul.

Lift & Lower On The Fly

Often when you rent a small refrigerated truck, you’ll need to rustle up a forklift to do the heavy lifting. Not with Albatross! Our refrigerated trucks feature external tail lifts that allow you to lift and lower on the fly.
