Models are available with dry storage for floral supplies and special options for showcasing products.


Our Blizzard, Guardian, and Cadet models are durable and built for efficient delivery of keg beer, milk, juices, sports drinks and more. These bodies are built tough and designed to carry heavy loads. They feature smooth interior surfaces that are easy to clean and sanitize, and options for cargo restraint and storage to keep loads secure.
