What are Reefer Containers…?
…And what do you use them for?
A reefer container is a refrigerated shipping container used to store or transport frozen or cold goods, perishable items or goods that require temperature control.
Reefers make an excellent, portable solution to short or long term storage and can be used to ship or truck goods over long distances as they can be plugged into the power station on ships or have clip on generators attached.
They can also be powered using our Smart Energy Systems, our efficient and environmentally friendly alternative to diesel generators, which are perfect for off-grid scenarios. Learn More.
Cargostore Reefers are wind and water tight with secure lockable doors and are available in 10ft, 20ft and 40ft sizes.

Why are Reefers so useful?
Broad Temperature Range
A Reefer container can sustain a temperature in the range of -35°C to +30°C (-30°C to +30°C for Offshore Reefers) meaning they can keep goods warm as well as cool.
For frozen goods, air flows around, under and up the sides of goods, to maintain the set temperature.
For chilled goods, air flows around, under and up the INSIDE of goods, to maintain the required temperature.
Our Reefers are designed to be easily transported, making them ideal for transporting temperature dependent cargo such as food or medicine.

Uses for refrigerated containers
Restaurants and Hotels
Reefers provide a quick solution for storage of foods, drinks and ingredients that restaurants and hotels use on a daily basis.
Seasonal Festivals and Fairs
Reefers are an ideal means for storage for foods and beverages at events. They can be easily deployed and removed when the event finishes for easy temporary storage.
Certain pharmaceuticals and other drugs need to be kept in a high controlled environment. Factors such as humidity and temperature may need to be kept at a constant or the effectiveness of the drug could be compromised.
Properly locked and secured shipping containers are one of the most effective ways to prevent storage theft on your property. Find out more about Cargostore’s security options for your shipping container.
