SHIPPING CONTAINERS SYDNEY – REFRIGERATED
We all know how hot Sydney can get in summer, but while this may be great for those catching waves and rays in Manly and Bondi, it can present a serious problem for companies who need to move their perishable goods from A to B. This is where Shipping Containers Sydney come in, by offering you the highest quality refrigerated shipping containers on the market. You now have the ability to control the temperature inside your shipping container and provide the optimal climate for your precious load; including meats, dairy produce, drinks, fruit, vegetables and plants.
DISTANCE AND HIGH TEMPERATURES NO LONGER A PROBLEM
With the thermometer often hitting 25˚C or higher during Sydney’s summer months, it doesn’t take long for a standard shipping container to become an oven, which is the last thing you need if you’re transporting an expensive cargo of cheese or beef – the idea is to preserve it not cook it! You may think you’ll get away with a short trip from the Port of Sydney to your warehouse but if you hit congestion in notorious blackspots, like the Parramatta Road at Concord or the M4 at Granville, you could be stuck for hours. Why not avoid the risk and let Shipping Containers Sydney supply you with one of our fantastic refrigerated units? Also known in the trade as ‘reefers’ all our containers are built from robust Corten steel, long considered the industry benchmark.
DIFFERENT OPTIONS FOR DIFFERENT PURPOSES
We live in a world where health and safety governs everything, not least the transportation of food and drink. Food safety inspectors often arrive without notice and rightly have the power to condemn a load that’s not been maintained at the correct temperature. Shipping Containers Sydney’s units offer you the ultimate in control and will maintain the precise level of refrigeration required. This means our reefers are perfect not just for shuttle-runs across Sydney and NSW, but also for those wanting to ship cargo over longer distances, including destinations like Perth or Darwin, or even overseas. All our containers are International Standards Organisation (ISO) compatible and also designed to be ‘intermodal’, which means they can be transferred from ship to truck to train without their cargo being unloaded, saving vast amounts of time and money.
With some loads – plants, alcoholic beverages and dry foods for example – precise refrigeration temperatures aren’t usually a necessity, which is why we also offer you a cheaper option in the form of our non-operational refrigerated containers (NORs). These are basically our standard refrigerated shipping containers recycled, with their motors either decommissioned or totally removed. You still benefit from the high-grade insulation we use in our reefers, which helps combat the age-old problem with standard shipping containers across the world – condensation.
REEFERS ADAPTED TO MORE THAN SIMPLE STORAGE AND SHIPPING
During holidays and weekends Sydneysiders are never slow in grabbing the chance to be out in the open air, be it on the beach at Coogee or Cronulla or at one of the many al fresco diners lining Sydney Harbour. With temperatures soaring, it’s not long before people are looking for a nicely chilled drink or a refreshing salad in the shade. In recent years Shipping Containers Sydney have responded to a huge demand from customers looking to convert our reefers and NORs into cafés, coffee shops, restaurants and bars. Customers keep nice and cool and food and drink can be kept at the perfect temperature.
If you run one of the many construction sites that have sprung up in Sydney, from Surry Hills to Liverpool, Palm Beach to Campbelltown, you may well need temporary accommodation for your workforce. We are experts at adapting refrigerated shipping containers for use as workers’ canteens, rest-rooms, site offices or even overnight accommodation. Once the job is completed you can simply pop the unit onto a truck and move it to the next location. Containers are available to purchase or rent.
A FLEXIBLE CHOICE OF SHIPPING CONTAINER LENGTHS
You can cram a lot of produce into one of our 40-foot steel reefers, making them ideal for transporting large, perishable loads cross-country or even as far as the USA and Europe. For smaller loads we have the option of our more manageable 20-footers, which can be useful when space is at a premium or access is restricted. Both have the same high-performance refrigeration motors with three-phase/415 power or single-phase options. Controllable temperature range is -25˚C to +25˚C. Our NORs also come in both sizes.
