What is a reefer container and what makes them different from ordinary containers?
Containers which have their own cooling system are reefer containers or popularly known just as "reefers". Reefers are primarily used to transport perishable and temperature-sensitive goods such as fruits and vegetables, meat, fish, dairy products and most importantly medicines and vaccines across the world. Even though they have the same dimensions as an ordinary shipping container, the internal structure of a reefer container is entirely different. Reefers can be considered giant fridges which allow the user to control the internal temperature, ventilation and humidity through the cooling units installed in each reefer. Reefer containers do not have their own power source and electricity must be provided to run it either through the ship's power supply or through the locations electrical system. An ordinary reefer can maintain a temperature between 25° C and -25° C but some special ones can store the goods at - 70° C. Reefers come in various sizes ranging from 10 ft to 40 ft sizes .
