Transport Refrigeration Technicians are part of a company’s maintenance department. Their work is often done in shops and terminals. Transport Refrigeration Technicians work on mobile units/trailers that supply conditioned air. These units transport perishable goods, like food and medical supplies.
The Transport Refrigeration Technician role is physically demanding. They use their body strength and flexibility to perform their work and spend most of their days on their feet, climbing onto ladders and equipment while servicing the trailers.
