Refrigerated containers, commonly known as reefers, are critical for transporting temperature-sensitive commodities across the globe. These containers are available in two standard sizes, 20ft and 40ft. Still, it is imperative to note that the internal cargo capacity of a reefer is marginally reduced due to the incorporation of refrigeration and ventilation equipment. Nevertheless, reefers are an ideal solution for ensuring the uniformity of temperatures throughout transit, particularly for perishable goods.
