Samskip Adds 140 Reefer Containers to Its Fleet

Samskip Multimodal has added 140 brand new electrical reefer containers to its fleet, further enhancing its capability to ship temperature-controlled or perishable goods across Europe.

The final batch of 50 Samskip Coolboxx reefer containers arrived earlier this month at the Rotterdam Shortsea Terminal, after being manufactured in China.

Enhanced features

Due to an improved design using a flat composite inner lining, the new reefer containers are lighter, stronger, easier to clean and allow for a smoother (un)loading process.

Samskip Adds 140 Reefer Containers to Its FleetSjaak Melissant, General Manager, Samskip Coolboxx, says: “These improvements are focused on expanding the network while offering an even more sustainable and cost-effective solution to our customers, with enhanced quality assurance for our customers’ temperature-controlled goods and perishables”.

In addition, unit Tare weight has been reduced from 5,990 kilograms to 5,760 kilograms, further increasing payload capacity. What is more, the insulation material used is 100% non-CFC (Cyclopentane), in line with our environmentally friendly business standards.

Each unit includes a high performance Thermo King Magnum Plus generator set, designed specifically for long distance transportation of deep frozen, frozen, chilled or heated cargo in a temperature range of -30°C to +30°C.
