Our strengths – your benefits

Remote Container Management

State-of-the-art Remote Container Management technology gives you a view inside the container.

Ice-cold expertise

Hamburg Süd has more than 100 years of experience in transporting refrigerated cargo and is continually developing its standards.

Excellent equipment

The highly advanced refrigerated containers are ideally suited to every type of temperature-controlled cargo – from plus 30°C to minus 60°C.

Personal support

Our Global Reefer Competence Team provides all the support you need for the transportation of your refrigerated cargo.

Extensive reefer expertise

2_hs_line_leistungen_reefer_multi_temperature_mode
Multi-Temperature Mode

The Multi-Temperature Mode allows Hamburg Süd to run defined temperature programs on reefer containers, instead of using a single, constant temperature for the entire transport.

3_hs_line_leistungen_reefer_bulb_mode
Bulb Mode

Hamburg Süd reefer containers are certified for the transport of flower bulbs as they follow the standards for flower bulb transportation of the Dutch Agrotechnological Research Institute (ATO).

Cold Treatment

The Cold Treatment, which exposes fruit to low temperatures over a longer period of time, is a tried-and-tested way of protecting produce against fruit flies and other insects.

4_hs_line_leistungen_reefer_cold_treatment
5_hs_line_leistungen_reefer_dehumidification_mode
Dehumidification Mode

The Dehumidification Mode restricts the relative humidity within the container to specific limits. It’s the right choice for transporting foods like garlic and ginger.

Controlled Atmosphere and Modified Atmosphere

Controlled Atmosphere (CA) and Modified Atmosphere (MA) are technologies in which Hamburg Süd is at the cutting edge. Special containers considerably slow down the ripening process of fruit and vegetables during transportation. In addition to cooling, the air composition within the container can be adjusted individually. This is accomplished primarily by lowering the oxygen content and increasing the CO2 content, which basically puts produce like avocados, bananas, mangoes and blueberries to sleep so that they arrive fresh at their destination.

We offer a broad range of equipment for CA and MA transportation that allows us to control the container atmosphere precisely to what your goods require.

Quality assurance from start to finish

Hamburg Süd maintains extremely high production and maintenance standards. Each of our reefers is subject to a standard pre-trip inspection before we deliver it to our customers; no equipment is deployed unless it passes with flying colors. Temperature-sensitive goods must also be correctly pre-cooled and stowed to arrive in optimal condition at their destination. You’ll find useful tips in the Hamburg Süd Reefer Guide (PDF, 5 MB) .

Tips for container loading

container_reefer_shadow_chilled_1
Example 1 – Chilled products
Fresh fruit and vegetables in palletized stowage (cartons on pallets)

Air always takes the path of least resistance. If air gaps or chimneys are left in a stow, they provide an easier route for airflow than that through the cargo. Air that does not go through the cargo cannot remove respiratory heat, and air moving through chimneys near the air distribution area cannot reach further parts of the cargo. Gaps and chimneys therefore reduce the capability to maintain temperature; ergo, the cargo must cover the entire T-floor to ensure proper distribution of temperature-controlled air.

When the cargo does not cover the entire T-floor, some type of filler material (heavy cardboard, dunnage, etc.) must be placed wherever there is no cargo. This prevents a short-circuiting of the circulating air, and forces air up and through the cargo to ensure proper air distribution in reefer containers with bottom air supply. Improper stuffing, and consequently the bypassing of circulating air, initiates a larger spread of temperatures within the cargo and can lead to severe cargo damage. It is important to ensure that air can circulate under, over and to each side and end of the stow and, in the case of respiring cargo, throughout the load.

As air provides an additional insulation against the ambience, the load should not be squeezed into the container – a space of a few millimeters to the side walls of the container should be left in order to allow air circulation between the cargo and the inner surface of the container.

Please note: In a reefer container, both the cargo and any filler material must be blocked and braced to stop the load from shifting. This graphs are general schematic illustrations depicting air circulation in reefers only and do not show any required cargo-securing material.

container_reefer_shadow_chilled_2
Example 2 - Chilled products
Fresh fruit and vegetables in palletized stowage (cartons on pallets)

This graph shows an alternative stuffing method that is often used for fresh bananas to ensure proper distribution of temperature-controlled air. Instead of covering the T-floor and pallet face at the door end (bottom blocking), a sponge foam block or cardboard is placed on top of the last pallets, between the last carton row and the container ceiling.

Please note: In a reefer container, both the cargo and any filler material must be blocked and braced to stop the load from shifting. This graphs are general schematic illustrations depicting air circulation in reefers only and do not show any required cargo-securing material.

container_reefer_shadow_chilled_3
Example 3 - Chilled products
A pigeonhole stow is common for chilled meat in break bulk cargo (loose cartons)

Chilled meat is a premium cargo that continues to ripen during shipment. In this illustration, the degree of airflow through the cargo is largely dependent upon the stuffing pattern at the doors.

Please note: In a reefer container, both the cargo and any filler material must be blocked and braced to stop the load from shifting. This graphs are general schematic illustrations depicting air circulation in reefers only and do not show any required cargo-securing material.

container_reefer_shadow_frozen_4
Example 4 - Frozen products
Block stow of frozen break bulk cargo (loose cartons)

In the case of pre-cooled frozen goods, temperature-controlled air only has to flow around the cargo, since no heat has to be dissipated from the cargo itself. Only the heat that penetrates the insulation from outside (and the heat of the fan motors) has to be removed.

If frozen cargo is pre-cooled to the correct carrying temperature as prescribed, it is only necessary for air to circulate around the periphery of the load. A block stow, i.e., one that has no deliberate spacing between any of the packages or pallets, is all that is required to avoid air short-circuiting. It is, of course, necessary to ensure that air can circulate under, over and to each side and end of the stow.

Please note: In a reefer container, both the cargo and any filler material must be blocked and braced to stop the load from shifting. This graphs are general schematic illustrations depicting air circulation in reefers only and do not show any required cargo-securing material.
