History

A top logistics company in the country

Universal’s Validated Refrigerated Division was started in 1992 and continues to be a family owned business who specializes in handling temperature sensitive products while providing extreme security. We currently run 165, five year and newer top of the line Peterbilts. Matched up with each Peterbilt, are eight year and newer refrigerated trailers. Every trailer has our Cargo Defender Security System installed, which includes two web based tracking systems. We also have a network of contract carriers to handle the freight which can’t go on Universal Truckload’s Equipment. Universal Truckload runs all 48 states and is ISO Certified and C-TPAT Certified.
