CRST International Inc., a truckload carrier offering a range of specialized services, has launched a new Temperature Controlled Team Service (TCTS). The offering will operate as a division of CRST Expedited, the largest operating company within CRST, relying on new Thermo King refrigerated units and insulated utility trailers that can maintain temperatures as low as minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit. According to the carrier, CRST will be the only transportation company in the U.S. offering an exclusive temperature-controlled service supported by team drivers. The service promises the transcontinental movement of perishable products in less than 60 hours, at a price that is competitive with single drivers. TCTS is aimed at cold-chain retailers and producers of items such as fruits and vegetables, dairy, meat, fish and shellfish, confections, ice cream, pharmaceuticals, wine, beer, and health and beauty aids.
