These companies and organisations use refrigerated trucks to store their food when transporting them to ensure that they are kept fresh during distribution. You might be wondering how food transportation affects the environment., well, the further the distance the food travels, the more energy the transportation takes in, which means carbon dioxide is being released into the air. This contributes to global warming, which is a very frightening thing. Because global warming causes the heating of the earth which is now killing our planet.
