The migrants, most of them Afghans, were found hiding in the lorry during a routine check by police near the northern Greek city of Xanthi.
It is understood that none of the migrants were injured and the refrigeration system had not been turned on, officials said.
The driver, from Georgia, was arrested and taken into custody. The migrants were also taken to the nearby police station for identification.
