Safe Cargo Stowage

Reefer Precautions

  • Poor air distribution is one of the primary causes of product deterioration even when unit capacity is more than adequate.
  • Obstruction anywhere around the load can result in hot spots.
  • Do Not Stack Boxes Above the Red Load Line !!

Always Load Below The Red Line

Recommended Loading Sequence

  • Inspect the unit to be loaded.
  • Pre cool the box until set point.
  • Switch off the unit.
  • Load pre-­‐cooled product at the correct temperature and as per correct stowage.
  • Close doors.
  • Start up unit
  • Ensure correct Set-­‐Point .
  • Ensure continuous power by hauliers.

Proper Cargo Loading & Airflow

Remember: Airflow is critical to optimal cooling. The shipper is responsible for correct stowage of the cargo within the container.

Excessive Space Between Loads

Result: Airflow doesn’t extend the full length of the reefer.

Load placed at the Rear

Result: Short-Cycling.

Load placed at the Front

Result: Air does not flow through the interior of the cargo.

Correct Pallet Loading
