Reefer Cargo


Temperature-sensitive cargo like foodstuffs, electronics, chemicals or pharmaceuticals must be shipped in accordance with strict specifications. The combination of cargo temperature requirements and climatic variations makes correct temperature control essential. Refrigerated or temperature-controlled shipping containers, better known as reefer containers, are a necessity for anyone who needs to transport perishable cargo by ocean freight. These containers are specially designed to keep cargo from spoiling. Reefers typically come in the same 20’ and 40’ lengths of standard shipping containers, although 45’ containers are also available. It is important to keep in mind that these containers will hold slightly less cargo than standard containers, as their refrigerator and ventilation systems will take up some space. A reefer cargo ship should have containers available to keep goods at their ideal temperature, whether that’s below freezing or moderately cool. The containers should have ventilation systems to prevent the build-up of heat and carbon dioxide, as well as dehumidification systems to keep the environment from becoming too humid. The ship should also have backup power sources available so that you don’t have to worry about your products losing their market value in the event of a power outage.
