Elmhurst, IL, US: The number of refrigerated trucks in the US is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 4.6% through 2014, according to a new report from Technavio. The report says that demand for refrigerated transport continues to grow as food retailers push regional distribution.

Stevens is the 16th largest truckload carrier in the US, according to data from SJ Consulting Group. It operates more than 2,000 trucks and 3,500 trailers.
