Ever open a real cold bottle and then it freezes and sprays everywhere? We always just idled for the vibrations but what if the truck idles smooth?

I remember drivers putting portable heaters in the back of dry van trailers; do they still do that?Mototom, TallJoe and Dave_in_AZ Thank this.
One bottle has to be frozen or damaged and the entire load can claimed as damaged. Just because they accept it on the dock does not mean that they won't file a cargo claim within a week or two.
Op, Water is different from processed food, what you have should be in a reefer with a temp just above freezing set in the unit.

I’ve ran into this same situation. Never had a problem. Really, if it were or had ever been a problem, Shipper would have a concern.StrokerTSi, Badmon, Dave_in_AZ and 1 other person Thank this.

I think, I should be all right, if they take it tomorrow before it gets too cold, if not, I'll discuss with the broker about storing it at a local warehouse. The value of the product is about 16 grand - too little to file a claim yet too much to pay it out of the pocket. I am just assuming the worst case but hope for the best.Dave_in_AZ Thanks this.

I'd it doesn't say protect from freezing on the BOLs, I wouldn't get in a twist.
I just delivered a load of Capri Sun, 2796 cases, to Portland, and it was WTF cold, and they were fine.

A chef friend just told me that he has frozen hot sauce he has made but it had to go to -20 to fully freeze.
