What is a Reefer Container…?

…And what is it used 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.

A Reefer Container is a useful solution for the storage and transportation of goods that require temperature control such as foods, perishable goods and pharmaceuticals. The Reefer Container will maintain a set temperature during transit for shipping, as well for as static storage on site.

A Reefer Container can be powered by a Clip-On-Genset which is mounted on the corner castings of the container, or other sources of 3 phase power. 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 provide both ISO Reefer Containers as well as DNV 2.7-1 certified Reefer Containers for offshore use.

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.

Versatile airflow

For frozen goods, air flows around, under and up the sides of goods, to maintain the set temperature.

Versatile airflow

For chilled goods, air flows around, under and up the INSIDE of goods, to maintain the required temperature.

Highly Portable

Our Reefers are designed to be easily transported, making them ideal for transporting temperature dependent cargo such as food or medicine.
