How are Reefer/Refrigerated Shipping Containers Constructed?

Reefer shipping containers start life as standard ISO shipping containers - either 20ft or 40ft long, they are then lined out on the inside and flooring is added. To cool the cargo that is stored in the reefer container the flooring is a specially designed 'T-Shape' that allows cool air to flow up through the floor circulate around the container. At the rear of the container opposite the double end doors, a refrigeration unit is added in order to maintain a constant internal temperature. Reefer containers do need a power supply to provide power to the refrigeration unit, this can either come from a ground source or from a generator attached to the outside of the unit.

What are reefer shipping containers used for?

  • Refrigerated Goods/Produce Storage - These units are commonly used to provide on-site refrigerated storage - operating as a walk -in chiller for storing temperature sensitive produce.
  • Temperature Controlled Transportation/Shipping - Commercial clients use reefer / refrigerated shipping containers for transporting produce around the world - these units ensure the container contents is kept at a constant temperature throughout transportation.

We typically sell reefer containers in two sizes - 20ft and 40ft units, we provide these units in both NEW and USED condition.

Why choose a Reefer/Refrigerated Shipping Container 

If you are looking for a specialised shipping container for certain cargo that you will be moving, if the cargo is temperature sensitive a reefer shipping container is best suited to you and why it is chosen over other styles of shipping containers. The reefer shipping container is easily attached to trucks for transporting to destinations. A reefer shipping container is designed to chill cargo but can also be used at a higher temperature it's not just used for chilling cargo.
