Checking Container Condition and Pre-cooling of Container

When receiving reefer container, shipper should check outer/inner status of container and operation condition of UNIT.

Pre-cooling of Cargo

In order to transport cargo in safe condition, shipper should stuff pre-cooled cargo into container as the same temperature as Shipper requested.

Pre-cooling of Reefer Container

Do not pre-cool container itself. Under situation that temperature of outer air is higher than inner air, if we open pre-cooled container for cargo stuffing, hot air of outside will come into inside of pre-cooled container. As the result, a frost will be made in Evaporator Coil of UNIT and the function of machine is fallen off.
