They truly go out of their way to ensure our freight is on time, rated fairly and most importantly done with integrity. They have been a great partner for years and I am proud to call them our JB Hunt Refrigerated LTL Carrier of the YEAR!

I just wanted to let you know that I am very grateful to have Mario as my Unified driver. He always waits until I am ready for him even if there is Trucks before him. He is a great Worker and adjusts to any condition that is put in front of him. I feel like he is a big caring person and will not mind waiting.

“Cultivating mutually beneficial partnerships by delivering value driven transportation services.”
Welcome to Northern Refrigerated Transportation, Inc.
“Service is the Difference”
This isn’t just our motto; this is why our business exists today. Northern Refrigerated was founded by my parents in 1947 under the name Northern Milk Lines. The operation began by hauling milk cans and tankers from small dairies to the creamery. It has grown into a 200 truck operation serving the 6 western states by staying true to our motto. We have remained a family oriented company and believe that our greatest asset is our people. We are in business to cultivate partnerships with our customers, believing that in doing this, both will be successful. ~ Rick Mello
