by Trinity Rail starting in late 2003, the unique 64' Reefer Box
Car was designed for increased capacity, shipping protection,
and loading/unloading efficiency. Large enough to fit the equivalent
of four 53' truck trailer contents, these excess height, plate
'F' cars have given new life to the once flourishing refrigerated
movement of produce and other perishable goods.
With 1,500 of these massive cars in service, the 64' Reefers have
literally taken tens of thousands of truck trailers off the highways,
paving the way for lower-emissions and increased capacity handling.
Furthermore, Railex Corporation has begun shipping produce in
solid unit trains from their locations in Washington, California,
and New York.
