Roadrunner Transportation announced the formation of Roadrunner Temperature Controlled, combining two transportation providers, M. Bruenger and R&M Transportation into a single company offering temperature-controlled solutions.

By combining its temperature-controlled subsidiaries, Roadrunner Transportation System is creating a flexible, integrated refrigerated trucking network.

Roadrunner Temperature Controlled will expand the company’s coverage in the U.S. and build on a group of around 400 drivers. The nationwide temperature-controlled network includes approximately 100 company drivers and over 300 owner-operators.

"This advancement has been in the works for quite some time," said Curt Stoelting, president and chief operating officer of Roadrunner Transportation Systems. "We are creating a temperature-controlled network that will control more than 400 tractors and manage more than 650 temperature-controlled trailers."

Roadrunner Temperature Controlled offers solutions for frozen foods, meat, seafood, produce, beverages, ice cream, pharmaceutical goods and many other products requiring temperature-controlled transit. It offers services like hazmat and SmartWay certifications, multiple terminal locations, real-time load tracking, EDI and Food Safety Modernization Act compliance and dedicated customer service.

Roadrunner Temperature Controlled will use McLeod’s transportation management system, Orbcomm’s real-time load tracking, and electronic logging devices.
