Reefers are different from regular shipping containers. They are a different size internally, and more importantly, they don’t have any lashing and anchor points. This makes it impossible to tie down cargo inside a reefer, and blocking and bracing is the only option. However, blocking and bracing does not work for all loading configurations.
Reefers are also lined with fragile materials such as aluminum and plastic and they cost seven times as much to build and repair, compared with a normal shipping container.
Therefore it is vital that your cargo is packed and secured in a way that not only avoids damage to your shipment but also avoids damaging the container.
We offer multiple solutions that are not limited to blocking and bracing to safely secure your cargo in reefer containers. Just get in touch with us!
