Food Transport

Metro offers a variety of transport options to ensure that your dishes are delivered easily and safely to their destination. Our range of food pan transport carriers ensure that food is kept temperate while also maintaining quality. The diversity of solutions ensures there is a choice for operations of any size, from a large banquet and catering operation to a smaller restaurant. Metro’s range of food transport containers have a solution that is perfect for your business. Another unique feature of Metro products is their versatility to be used for both hot and cold food transport. Metro offers multiple solutions in both the hot food transport and cold food transport categories.

Cabinet Transport

For larger operations, Metro offers a variety of heated and refrigerated cabinets designed with transport in mind. Our Metro C5 T-series cabinets come equipped with polyurethane insulation for superior protection against temperature change during transport. The 5” casters ensure smooth and stable movement when the unit is in motion. Each T-series unit comes with side handles created with Metro’sInsulation Armour. Insulation Armour helps to insulate cabinets further while also providing a system to maneuver easily by providing more handle space. The armor also helps to protect the cabinet if it were to fall, protecting your investment.

Another excellent option for more extensive operations is the C5 4N series. These cabinets are non-powered but fully insulated to retain their temperature. These units come surrounded in Insulation Armour, further trapping heat in the cabinet and protecting the actual cabinet. The insulation armor also provides safe cool- to- touch areas for staff to move the cabinet without being burned.

Pan Carriers

For an operation that doesn’t require the space of large cabinets, Metro offers Mightylite pan carriers. Mightylite transports both cold and hot food while maintaining a safe temperature for up to 5 hours. The units come in front load options for traditional serving pans. The front-load catering box weighs 60% less than the competition but is still strong enough to handle rough transport. The front-load pan carriers come in two sizes. The ML300 can hold up to 3 pans, and the ML400 can hold up to four. Each unit comes with three color options.

There are multiple accessory options to choose from to ensure that your transportation is optimized to its full potential with Mightylite. The thermal partition can divide units to allow the user to keep hot and cold foods to temperature in the same unit. The Mightylite heater is another great way to ensure temperature retention past the 5-hour mark. It is also great for a perfectionist transporter because it ensures that products remain as close as possible to their original temperature. The wire caddy accessory is great for holding hot or cold hold packs or holding quart containers in place during transport. No more spilled soups! To help with transportation, a dolly system can be purchased that allows you to easily stack your Mightylite pan carriers and wheel them at once to your destination.

Mightylite carriers also come in a top-load configuration. The top-load option resembles a cooler but can still be used for both hot or cold transport. There are two different lid size options that normal flat lid and the extra-large lid, which adds 63% more storage space.
