When you need to ship goods, you can’t leave anything up to chance. You need to ensure that your cargo is transported on a reliable refrigerated ship so that spoilage is not a concern. Rest easy when you choose Global Shipping Services as your freight forwarder for temperature and climate-sensitive goods; with our years of experience and strong professional connections in the shipping industry, we will be able to secure refrigerated sea containers to meet your specifications.
Refrigerated or temperature-controlled shipping containers, better known as reefer containers, are a necessity for anyone who needs to transport perishable cargo by ocean freight. These containers are specially designed to keep cargo from spoiling. Reefers typically come in the same 20’ and 40’ lengths of standard shipping containers, although 45’ containers are also available. It is important to keep in mind that these containers will hold slightly less cargo than standard containers, as their refrigerator and ventilation systems will take up some space.
A reefer cargo ship should have containers available to keep goods at their ideal temperature, whether that’s below freezing or moderately cool. The containers should have ventilation systems to prevent the build-up of heat and carbon dioxide, as well as dehumidification systems to keep the environment from becoming too humid. The ship should also have backup power sources available so that you don’t have to worry about your products losing their market value in the event of a power outage.
If you are shipping any other temperature-sensitive cargo, Global Shipping can help. We specialize in moving what others can’t and getting your goods to their final destination in their ideal condition. We hold contracts with all major shipping lines and consolidators, which means we can arrange to transport your goods on a refrigerator ship to just about any destination, even if you’re on a tight deadline. Our industry connections also allow us to keep our pricing competitive, so you can cut shipping costs without compromising on quality service.
When facilitating your shipment, we pay attention to important logistical details throughout the transportation process. We’ll make sure the reefer container ship is fully-equipped with reliable power and backup power sources, and that your goods are packed in a way that ensures proper air circulation. We will monitor your reefer shipment throughout the transportation process and keep you up-to-date every step of the way. Enjoy greater peace of mind when you transport your temperature-sensitive goods through Global Shipping.
