Reefer containers, also known as refrigerated containers, are specialised containers designed to transport goods at specific temperature ranges, making them an essential component in South Africa’s logistics. They are popular in many industries since they have the ability to transport temperature-sensitive items, such as food, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals, over long distances, ensuring product quality and safety.   When purchasing Reefer Containers, there are several important factors to keep in mind: Size & Capacity Reefer containers generally come in 6m and 12m container sizes. A 6m reefer container offers a capacity of 33.2 meters cubed while a 12m container offers a capacity of 67.7 meters cubed. The best option for you would be dependent on your cargo. Temperature Range Ensure the reefer container is able to maintain the required temperature for your cargo, whether it’s frozen, chilled or controlled at a specific range. Power Source In South Africa’s current power outages, it is important to keep in mind that the reefer container will need to be powered by either a diesel generator or electric plug-ins. It should also be factored in when budgeting operational costs and sustainability.

Container conversions are becoming increasingly more popular over the years as mobile and cost-effective solutions for a wide array of purposes, from homes and offices to pop-up shops and mobile classrooms. One of the critical decisions when considering containers conversion projects is whether insultation is necessary. Some may argue that insulation is essential for comfort and energy efficiency, while others may view it as an optional luxury. Containers are made of steel, which in turn conducts heat and cold rapidly. Insultation would allow one to regulate the temperature making it more bearable during extreme weather conditions we have here in South Africa. Having insulation would also be energy efficient as it would reduce the need for heating and cooling. Depending on the use of the container for example as an office space or accommodation, insultation would provide a more comfortable and liveable environment by reducing noise, regulate humidity and prevent condensation. Insultation may also extend the lifespan of the container by protecting the interior from extreme temperatures and moisture which prevents rust and corrosion. Location is a major factor when deciding on insultation in milder climates insulation may not be critical whereas regions with extreme temperatures insultation becomes more important. It is...
