Polar King upgrades delivery fleet

Feb. 15, 2023
New custom-built, linehaul trailers to accommodate transport of more cold storage units in a single trip, saving time and money

Polar King International is updating its fleet to incorporate new delivery trailers designed to accommodate the transport of more walk-in cold storage units in a single trip, creating savings the company says it will pass to customers.

Doonan Specialized Trailer in Great Bend, Kansas, is building the trailers. Polar King said it currently has two of the new trailers, and expects to take delivery of three more later this year, bringing its total fleet to 14 line-haul trailers. 

“These trailers are customized to match our exact specifications and maximize capacity for larger Polar King units,” said Dave Schenkel, Polar King president. “With our enhanced fleet, the number of oversize permits and escorts required for each trip is greatly reduced, thereby saving customers both time and money on delivery.”  

Polar King offers electric ground-resting outdoor walk-in freezer and refrigerator units that are delivered preassembled and ready to operate with a simple electrical connection, the company said. Polar King’s 100% seamless fiberglass design provides a continuous surface with rounded insulated corners to promote a sanitary environment. 

Polar King uses fiberglass to reduce the potential for rusting, denting, or corroding.
