• Refrigerated Shipping Containers

Refrigerated Container Sales & Rentals


Refrigerated containers (also known as reefers) have  been around for more than 40 years.  The initial intent was to ship temperature sensitive frozen or chilled product long distances.  Many of the everyday products purchased and grocery, wholesale club, and specialty stores are shipped around the world in refrigerated containers.  Meats, cheeses, chocolates, fish, fruits and vegetables are all transported in refrigerated containers.   Other products that use refrigerated containers for transportation are flowers, blood plasma, and film.

Where They Are Used:

In the domestic market our customers are very creative in their use of refrigerated containers.  We lease and sell them to many business for temporary usage while they are upgrading their current cold storage facilities.  Restaurants have been using reefers for years to add additional capacity during peak seasons and to help them grow their business without the costly remodels required to increase their capacity.  Grocery stores have seen the value in using temporary cold storage for the seasonal peaks driven by the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.  The southern United States has relied on refrigerated containers to store ice for concrete pours.  Design standards require the concrete not to exceed a maximum temperature in order to achieve the optimum strength.

Food Banks:

We have worked with food banks in both Arizona and Texas to supply them with refrigerated containers.  As the food banks receive donations, they have to distribute the food goods to their community very quickly before spoilage occurs.  By adding reefers, they are able to accept larger volumes of food that require a longer shelf-life if stored in temperature controlled environments.  This benefits not only the company who donates the food product, but also the food bank serving a broader community and the families that are reliant on this support.  CGI Container Sales is proud to be part of this process!

We also have shipping containters for sale. lease. modifications.
