Chinese reefers arrive in Rotterdam
Proof that a new type of refrigerated container is leading to growth in Samskip's temperature-controlled volumes has now arrived in Rotterdam. The multimodal operator recently added 51 of the new lighter weight 45 ft reefer units to its fleet at the Dutch port.
The electrically powered reefers, built in China, feature the same innovative flat composite inner lining first favoured by Samskip in a breakthrough order in 2014.
The enhanced design results in containers that are lighter, stronger and easier to clean than conventional reefers, while allowing for smoother stuffing and stripping processes at the same time. (ben)
