New Cold Chain Composite Reefer With EcoNex™ Technology

New Cold Chain Composite Reefer With EcoNex™ Technology

Wabash Canada’s advanced EcoNex™ reefer is setting breakthrough performance standards. Loaded with features to increase revenue per mil and dramatically reduce operating costs, the EcoNex reefer leaves conventional equipment far behind.

Why EcoNex?

Our patented EcoNex technology is made up of a foam-insulated core, encapsulated in a polymer fiber-reinforced shell with a protective gel coat surface. The result is a composite that is 37x less conductive than aluminum – and why we built the EcoNex reefer. This redefined refrigerated trailer provides up to 30% improvement in thermal performance over conventional construction, prevents water intrusion, slows foam degradation, and ultimately extends equipment life.

Up To 30% More Thermally Efficient

Breakthrough thermal technology allows you to dramatically reduce your operating costs – run fewer hours, use less fuel, and keep your equipment longer.

Less Weight

Increase your revenue per mile by saving fuel, hauling more freight, and expanding your backhaul options with a composite reefer that is lighter than most conventional designs.

Greater Strength & Durability

The all-composite floor system increases cube capacity, eliminates corrosion issues you see with conventional reefers, and comes with a standard 24,000 lb. dynamic load rating. The EcoNex sidewalls, nose, and roof provide up to two times the puncture resistance of standard liners, keeping your maintenance costs to a minimum.

  • Boosts thermal performance by up to 30%.
  • Lightweight properties reduce weight.
  • Structural strength eliminates need for metal or wood.
  • 2X puncture resistance over traditional options.
  • Gel coat protects against water intrusion and weight gain.
  • Slower foam degradation upholds thermal properties.
  • Extended product life.
  • 100% EcoNex-dedicated facilities and R&D resources.
  • Made in the U.S.

Types of Financing

Our Team will help you determine which type of financing is best for your situation.
We will discuss the pro and cons for each solution so we can make an informed decision.

CAPITAL LEASE: A capital lease is an operating expense, which reduces taxes. It allows you to use the equipment over a set term. At the end of the term, you own the asset for a nominal fee. You may resell it at that point and you can also upgrade equipment at any time during the term.

CONDITIONAL SALES CONTRACT: A Loan helps you finance the total cost of the equipment. You own the equipment and your payments cover interest on the loan and reduce the loans principle. You claim tax deductions for the interest paid and on the annual amortization of the equipment.

OPERATING LEASES: An operating lease is a rental agreement giving you the right to use the equipment without ownership. This is an off balance structure and several options can be offered once you reach end of term.

CUSTOM SOLUTIONS: Once we understand your situation, we can develop a custom solution tailored to your needs.


So, you’re shopping for a trailer and you found one that costs $300 dollars less. Sounds like a good deal, right? Not so fast: that decision could cost you $10,000 dollars over the lifecycle of your trailer. In fact, it’s highly likely that within the first year of ownership, you will spend 2 to 3 times more than what you saved on the initial cost of the trailer.

Why? Choosing a lower quality trailer means you’ll be spending more on maintenance and repairs when things go wrong. It also means less time on the road – eating into your profits. Click to see how Wabash trailers are designed to keep you on the road and save you money in the long run.
