VersaCold temperature-controlled LTL

Ensuring the safe transportation of temperature-sensitive food is our biggest priority. That’s why VersaCold offers a variety of services that help create a customized transportation solution to suit all needs, big and small.

The backbone of VersaCold Transportation Solutions is refrigerated less-than-truckload transportation (LTL). With the widest network of temperature-controlled, food-focused LTL in Canada, we have the capacity and reach to efficiently distribute products for both global food companies and regional processors.

But with all the transportation solutions out there, it can be tough to determine which one is right for you. As the market leader in Canada, we’re breaking it down for you.

Overview and benefits of LTL
LTL is a transportation service that combines small orders from various sources to ship to a customer. Some transportation providers offer regular scheduled service, relying on a steady volume of product from various shippers to make the service viable.

By consolidating several LTL shipments from multiple sources, shippers can move smaller amounts of product more frequently and more cost-effectively, making it ideal for smaller businesses and/or shipments. Utilizing a regularly scheduled service, shippers also ensure frequent stock replenishment and avoid inventory stockouts. LTL also allows for delivery volumes to be flexible with each shipment, making it easy for the shipper to flow with fluctuations in customer demand.

What types of LTL services does VersaCold offer?
VersaCold provides LTL transportation solutions for many types of temperature-controlled products, with deliveries to all points in Canada. Through our CPX division, we deliver LTL quantities direct to the United States. In addition to our regularly scheduled standard LTL services, we also offer our expedited multi-temperature service with the ability to cost-effectively split fresh and frozen goods in the same trailer. All services are available domestically and cross border, delivering both north and south.
