Tiger Cool Express marks fifth anniversary

Sept. 14, 2018
Discover how Tiger Cool Express has grown in its five years in business.

Tiger Cool Express attained a significant milestone this September, celebrating five years in business. The company, a leading service provider of temperature-controlled intermodal transportation, says it operates the second-largest domestic refrigerated container fleet in the United States.

Ted Prince, the firm’s co-founder and chief operating officer, commented on how the business was conceived.

“When we developed the business plan, we really felt the last frontier for intermodal was perishables, specifically produce, because it was a long length of haul, and that’s traditionally where intermodal has succeeded,” he said. “The perishable market was also favorable to intermodal conversion as it was heavily served by owner-operators, and would be significantly impacted by impending safety regulations.”

The company continues to serve the perishable and produce industry while expanding its service across commercial customers that ship confectionary, beverage, meat, seafood, dairy, processed food, and health and beauty products.

“Tiger Cool Express is an asset-based intermodal provider servicing a growing segment in the transportation industry as the conversion of truckload temperature-controlled freight to intermodal has only just begun,” said Steve Van Kirk, chief executive officer. “The company has quickly grown from zero to 730 state-of-the-art 53-foot refrigerated containers. We are committed to delivering great service to our customers as we expand our container fleet.”
