Refrigerated Container Services Now Offered - REEFER

Newell & Wright offer Refrigeration Container Services to our customers from our Sheffield location. We have allocated a significant amount of real estate to a fully serviced REEFER offering. Refrigerated Container Services Now Offered - REEFER

This service is offered as a complementary part of our complete haulage solution. Refrigerated containers or REEFE's are intermodal containers (shipping container) used in intermodal freight transport that is refrigerated for the transportation of temperature sensitive cargo.

The refrigeration container units are offered as 40ft or 20ft standard sizes. While a reefer will have an integral refrigeration unit, they rely on external power, from electrical power points at a land based site, a container ship or on quay. At Newell & Wright we have a dedicated bay system with multiple power points and sources allowing for a complete refrigerated service. We also offer the transportation and collection over land and sea using trailers powered from diesel powered generators ("gen sets") which attach to the container whilst on road journeys.
