    I’ve seen these guys running around with placards on their reefers. Don’t recall the class of placard or really much about them. I know their trailers advertise terminals in IN, MO and AZ tho. Hope this helps or at least offers a jumping off point.

    I think this outfit is 100% company drivers. I could possibly be wrong though.

    I may be out of the loop, but what's a "Hazmat reefer" company? I hauled a lot of reefer freight, food mostly, I'm not sure what you'd haul in a food trailer that was hazardous, if it's even allowed.

    Pharmaceuticals and munitions are two I can think of right off. Of course, I only know this because I've researched this myself. These items typically require a team to run.

    We've looked into this before and just not found much info. I think those type loads aren't that common and those who know about them aren't talking.

    IDK, I did a lot of LTL reefer in Wisconsin years ago( talk about a PITA) and I don't recall ever hauling anything hazardous, fact is, I don't remember even having a hazmat classification. It just wasn't needed. I can hear it now,,( dispatcher) "yeah, after picking up those 2 pallets of spent nuclear fuel rods, then head over and grab the rest of that yogurt load',,,it just never happened.

    It's a company that hauls reefer and has a hazmat license also. A reefer is requested on some hazmat loads to either keep the temp down or from freezing. For example in the winter they need a reefer to haul ink so it doesn.t freeze.

    Munitions you can carry with a dry van also. I hauled explosives and ammunition with a dry van.
