What is a Refrigerated Shipping Container?
Commonly known as reefers, refrigerated containers were originally designed to ship temperature regulated items across long distances on ships or by rail. Reefers are designed to maintain high and low temperatures for the safe and hygienic storage of the containers content, which is why many of the items you find in grocery stores or specialty food stores are shipped to their respective stores in refrigerated containers. In addition to being used for large companies and grocery stores, refrigerated containers are becoming more and more popular with small businesses, because of how convenient and practical they are, in a variety of situations.
