The article focuses on the changes in the design of refrigerated trailers due to noise limit regulations in Western Europe. Complaints of occupants of residences built on top of stores regarding middle-of-the-night deliveries prompted the noise policy.

It describes the design of the Super Quiet trailer manufactured by Microfret to address the issue including an enclosed, undermount refrigeration unit.
