The history of refrigerated transport dates back to the industrial revolution. Indeed it is interesting to know that the first refrigerated transport was made possible with trains. The food business found the only solution to move fresh food and meat.
At first ice-box insulated cabins were used in the train. Huge quantity of perishable products were transported from remote areas such as farms to urban areas. As a result grocery stores began to thrive and people had fresh food within reach.
But this transportation solved only half the problem. The ice would melt quickly and only some of the products would make it to the destinations. Hence a huge loss for the vendors and farmers. Refrigerated transport needed a better solution. Even though the trains transported a useful amount of food and medical supplies for the soldiers in world war II.
However the first on road refrigerated transport didn’t happened until the second world war. Fred Jones introduced the first portable refrigerator in 1935. The first prototypes were used in world war II particularly to help preserve food and blood serum. These refrigerated trucks used a mechanical cooling unit for a container mounted on a truck. For refrigerated transportation this was a break-through invention. Fred received a patent for it in 1940.
Moreover, Fred co founded Thermo king corporation which revolutionized the refrigerated transportation industry. Fred Jones held more then 60 patents during his lifetime with most of them pertaining to refrigeration.
