40ft high cube refrigerated containers, or high cube reefers as they are commonly known, are higher than a standard 40ft reefer. Manufactured 1 foot (30cm) taller, they provide extra storage capacity that can reduce the amount of reefers required for cargo being transported in high volume. The higher doors also provide easier access for bulkier or over-height goods.
Used for perishable foods, non-food items such as flowers and pharmaceuticals, a 40ft high cube reefer container (high cube reefer) can be set to maintain extremes of cold temperature for the duration of transit. Temperature is monitored throughout to ensure the cargo is kept in perfect refrigerated conditions.
