Reefer containers

Reefer containers are refrigerated shipping containers, usually used for transporting temperature-sensitive goods such as food, medicine, or clothes. A reefer container can maintain temperatures ranging from +25°C to -25°C, which makes them an ideal solution for transporting perishable items. These versatile containers are also commonly used by hospitality businesses for storing extra stock, including meats and vegetables. If you need a temperature-controlled transport or storage solution, reefer containers are the perfect option for you!

Frequently asked questions

Are there different refrigerated shipping container sizes?

Our refrigerated shipping containers are available in 20ft and 40ft sizes. Our 20ft containers are predominately 3 phase power supply, but we may from time to time be able to supply single phase, whereas our 40ft containers are only available in the 3 phase power supply.

How do refrigerated containers work?

Reefer containers essentially work like large refrigerators. They are built with a shipping container refrigeration unit that delivers chilled air through the floor which is circulated internally.

How are refrigerated containers powered?

Our reefer containers are powered single phase (20ft and 40ft) or a 3 phase power supply unit (40ft only). 

The single phase power supply (3 Pin PDL plug required) has a temperature range of +10°C to -20°C and offers a 50% power saving compared to the 3 phase. 

The 3 phase power supply (4 Pin PDL plug required) is more powerful than the single phase with a temperature range of +25°C to -25°C.

What are the other uses of refrigerated shipping containers?

As well as the transport and storage of perishables for supermarkets and restaurants, mobile catering teams also use them frequently for temporary storage pf food and beverages during festivals and events. Other sectors, like the pharmaceutical industry, rely on refrigerated containers in situations where controlled temperature environments are a necessity. Private homeowners have also bought Reefer containers for their own additional food/beverage storage needs.
