Refrigerated Roller-Bed Trailer

Our unique, custom-made roller-bed reefers ensure that your plane-side recovery time is the fastest and most secure in the industry. This is important when time and temperature control are required for the life of your cargo. Your large-capacity cargo containers (as large as 96″ wide x 125″ long) can be transported from the airport directly to the dock of the final destination. Your climate-sensitive cargo experiences limited exposure to elements that can compromise the integrity of your shipment.

Electrified Refrigerated Roller-Bed Trailer

Transferring your temperature-controlled cargo promptly and effectively is a breeze. We eliminate the risk of excursions from sitting in the hot sun & the cost of breaking up your cargo into multiple containers. Our custom-made electrified roller-bed refrigerated trailer moves ULD containers up to 96″ wide and 125″ long. These trailers give us the capability to charge or pre-condition ULD’s during transport. This allows for a customer’s active container to arrive preconditioned and fully charged thus cutting down on time and cost.

Lab Relocation Trailer

Designed and built unlike any other trailer to provide a solution for shipping temperature-sensitive biological materials and pharmaceutical ingredients. This custom trailer is equipped with two (2) backup refrigeration units, two (2) 20KW generators, a sliding liftgate, and twelve (12) Electrical plug-ins to supply power to biomedical refrigerators and freezers on board.

There are many sources available for maintaining temperature control packaging and transporting. The PACE team is qualified to handle your cargo and all types of packaging and has been certified with Envirotainer.

The container is a certified air cargo ULD (Unit Load Device), ensuring seamless handling throughout the supply chain worldwide. The unit can be carried on board the most common wide-body aircraft types.

t2 container: the t2 container provides accurate and reliable protection for large shipments of temperature-sensitive products.
