A new refrigerated trailer is about to become available in the US. The trailer panels are manufactured in China by China International Marine Container Co (CIMC) and then assembled in the US. The panels use painted aluminum skins with an insulating foam core. CIMC is the largest manufacturer of containers in the world…

One could guess that valuable weight could be shed by using FRP composite skins, but it is likely that the low cost aluminum sandwich panel benefits are more significant than weight savings.
