They provide a secure temperature-controlled environment, great for storing food on a large scale, or indeed anything that needs to be maintained at a steady temperature.

In addition to being used in situ, these units can also be used to transport temperature-sensitive produce. Reefer units can regulate the internal temperature to anything from negative 35 degrees Celcius to positive 30 degrees Celcius.
