These goods can be, for example, medicines, chemicals and plants, or food and beverages.
Here you can buy or rent both insulated and reefer containers to safely store and transport your goods. Choose your 40 feet reefer or 20 feet reefer now or let our team advise you.

Reefer container classic or customized equipped: Unit, floor & doors according to your needs

The refrigerated container makes it possible to store goods and merchandise at a constant temperature with the help of an integrated unit and even to transport them on ocean-going vessels or trucks. But how exactly does it work? In addition to the required refrigeration unit, the so-called T-Floor floor made of aluminum is installed in refrigerated containers as standard. Unlike standard containers, the T-Floor in refrigerated containers has small vertical gaps, so-called gratings. The gratings allow air to circulate underneath the goods. In order for the air to also circulate over the goods, there is a mark in the container that indicates up to where the goods can then be stacked. The unit works by taking in warm air, then cooling it and releasing it permanently into the container at a certain pressure. This process makes it possible to ensure a constant temperature. If you prefer a smooth or ribbed bottom profile on the grating, we will be glad to install it for you.

20 ft Reefer container
Our 20 ft reefer containers, also known as reefers, are ideal for both storage and transportation of temperature sensitive goods such as food, plants and medicines due to the built-in refrigeration unit. With a length of approx. 6 meters, they offer plenty of space and can still be used flexibly as a Reefer Dry Van according to your personal requirements without activating the refrigeration unit.
In addition, you can also buy or rent insulated containers from us. These are often ex-service refrigerated containers in which the refrigeration unit has been removed and replaced with a metal plate.
The so-called T-Floor consisting of aluminum is installed in refrigerated containers as standard. Alternatively, we will of course be happy to install another floor panel with a smooth or ribbed profile for you. The floor allows the temperature to circulate inside the container to ensure a steady temperature.
If you are interested in buying or renting a larger refrigerated container, you can also find 40 feet refrigerated container.

Fresh Facts: The special features of refrigerated containers

Reefer containers are classically available in the sizes 40 ft Reefer, as well as 20 ft Reefer or in both sizes as high cube. The High Cube containers have a height of about 2.90 m and are therefore about 0.30 m higher than the standard containers. Did you know that the reefers we offer you in Europe are usually only one sea voyage old? 90% of the reefer containers are produced in Asia, just like almost all other container types, and shipped from there to Europe as new goods. However, we do not disregard the ecological aspect, so that we have our new containers shipped to Europe on their first sea voyage with contents suitable for foodstuffs. Without activating the refrigeration unit, a reefer container can be used as a so-called „Reefer Dry Van“ according to personal wishes, just like a standard container. Besides reefers, there are also so-called insulated containers. These are often ex-service reefer containers where the refrigeration unit has been removed and replaced with a metal plate. Before accepting the reefer containers, we carry out a „Pre-Trip Inspection“, in which the reefer unit is checked intensively for defects over several hours, so that a constant temperature can be guaranteed during transport and storage.

Of course, it does not always have to be a new container. At C.H.L. you can alternatively buy or rent used containers. Our team will be happy to work with you to determine which quality and equipment will suit your individual or even conventional project. Please feel free to contact us at any time.
