TKX Transport Refrigeration Services

Refrigerated transportation is an industry that requires its leaders and technicians to provide top-notch service and repair at all moments. With perishable cargo at stake, cold storage movers need a servicing company they can trust to get the job done right with no time wasted. TKX Transport Refrigeration takes this duty seriously.

We also provide regular scheduled maintenance and refrigerated trailer repair.
