    Does anyone know where I could source a 24-26 foot straight that can heat the inside to 80 Degrees? Trying to avoid paying TL pricing.

    Is there any 24-26 foot straights that have heaters that can heat the inside to 80 degrees F?

    You're looking for a box truck with a reefer. Reefer heats and cools.

    Some guys install carrier or tk diesel heaters on straight trucks but to reach 80f in cold weather you would need barn doors on the box.

    Many times a straight truck will charge roughly the same as truck load sometimes more .

    Unless I’m mistaken he’s looking to get straight trucks to haul his freight to lower price . I don’t believe he’s buying a truck

    It's chemical (non haz) that hardens when it reaches below 80.

    The customer isn't shipping much. 1 tote at a time. So, he's trying to avoid booking a 53 for a tote.
     
    Bean Jr. and Magoo1968 Thank this.
