Integral Reefers – Typical Internal Dimensions




Height (to Load Line)



20ft Reefer 5450mm 2285mm 2160mm 2700 – 3300 Kilos 24000 Kilos
40ft HC Reefer 11500mm 2280mm 2400mm 4100 – 4800 Kilos 30000 Kilos

Notes on Payloads:

Maximum legal cargo weights are governed by prevailing road transport limits. In the UK, no single combination of laden tractor trailer combination can exceed 44,000 kilos. This would typically mean a maximum payload of 25,000 or 26,000 kilos.

Containers can be set to carriage temperature ranging from -27 deg celsius (-15 deg f) to +28 deg celsius (+86 deg f), a range which covers the vast majority or transport requirements. There are super freezers which can be set to -60 deg C or colder for specific transportation requirements. Refrigerated containers are designed to maintain rather than affect the status of transported products. Goods should already be at the designated transport temperature upon loading.
