Project Description

The most relevant thing about transporting food is the refrigeration issue.

Fish, meat, vegetables, fruit, frozen products, they all have to travel at designated temperatures. If a store orders products of multiple temperatures and one single vehicle is the best option to deliver them then it must comply with transporting multiple temperatures.

In this case, if the vehicle has two cooling engines then it can accommodate up to three distinct conditioning temperatures: two on each engine and another one (ambient) in the middle. The temperature separation is usually able with the placement of up to two isolation foils.

Routyn considers the multiple possibilities of placing isolation foils in trailers in such way that a vehicle can accommodate as many refrigerated temperatures as its cooling engines.
