Buy a reefer container

Reefer is a corruption of the word refrigerator. A reefer container has a built-in cooling element which makes it similar to a large refrigerator. This type of container is especially used to ship food, plants and pharmaceuticals at a steady temperature. You can set the temperature between -25 and +25 degrees Celsius, some types of reefer containers even go up to -45 degrees Celsius. Interesting fact: the port of Rotterdam is the most important port of Europe regarding import and export of reefer containers containing refrigerated and frozen cargo.

They are available in our depot in Rotterdam. We thoroughly inspect all used containers and repair them if required ensuring that the reefer container is always wind- and watertight, CSC approved, Pre-Trip Inspected (PTI) and safe for transport. The containers are also painted before their departure. Inspections and repairs are always done in compliance with all international requirements.
