Conditioned Transport, Storage and Control of Reefer Containers

Refrigerated transport and reefer containers are a crucial link in today’s logistics, being particularly indispensable for industries such as food and pharmaceuticals. As a logistics partner, Container Terminal Doesburg offers a reliable solution for the transport, storage and control of reefer containers. Our dedication ensures that temperature-sensitive goods remain in optimal condition from point of departure to final destination.

Our focus on intermodal reefer transport by barge offers a sustainable alternative to exclusively road transport. Our ambition is therefore to support customers in significantly reducing their carbon footprint, while maintaining the reliability and efficiency of their logistics processes.

Our unique services include:

Direct Connection of Containers to Barges: a unique service in the industry, where reefer containers are directly connected to specially equipped barges. This service ensures consistent cooling, essential for maintaining the quality of temperature-sensitive goods.

Daily Reporting: the temperature of conditioned goods is checked three times a day and the findings are recorded and reported.

Cleaning and Repair: maintenance of reefers can take place on-site at the terminal, so reefers always leave in optimal condition.

Pre-tip Inspections: A certified inspection body can check the condition of reefer or generator set before loading to provide assurance.

Why Sustainable Refrigerated Transport?

Container Terminal Doesburg sets itself apart by using intermodal transport and inland shipping to transport temperature-sensitive goods. This approach is significantly more sustainable than traditional road transport, reduces congestion and reduces associated CO2 emissions.

For companies in the food and pharmaceutical sectors, among others, this approach not only offers a route to reducing their carbon footprint, but also helps them comply with environmental legislation and meet sustainability targets. Moreover, our efficient use of transport resources and continuity in the cooling process ensures certainty in product quality.
