Shipping Containers Adelaide – Refrigerated
If you need to transport perishable your bulk goods safely from A to B, Shipping Containers Adelaide’s Corten steel, refrigerated units are by far the best solution. They are also perfect if you need to store meat, dairy, fruit, vegetables or drinks in a temperature controlled environment. All our refrigerated shipping containers are available to rent or purchase and can be delivered rapidly to you at any location.
With Adelaide’s climate being sub-tropical, consignments of foodstuffs could potentially spoil, leading to catastrophic losses and disgruntled customers. Thanks to our insulated and refrigerated shipping containers which come in various lengths, the problem disappears, allowing you to transport vulnerable loads across the country or store them for extended periods without risk.
Ideal for Moving Perishable Loads Over Long Distances
Modern trading networks extend not just across Australia but across continents, with millions of tons of goods being imported and exported through Port Adelaide each year – everything from iron and steel to fertilisers and flowers; much of it moved using trusty containers built by Shipping Containers Adelaide right here in Australia.
Choose the Right Container to Suit Your Consignment
Also known as ‘reefers’ in the trade, we advise you opt for our refrigerated shipping containers if your load needs to be kept within a specific temperature range; to preserve pharmaceuticals and frozen foodstuffs, for example, or slow the ripening of fruit during a long journey. Our reefers are well insulated and boast reliable, motorised refrigeration units, designed to distribute chilled air uniformly throughout the container’s interior and prevent hot spots from occurring.
If precise temperature control isn’t a major consideration, you could save money by renting or buying a non-operational refrigerated container (NOR), which has the refrigeration motor either removed or decommissioned. It would be a great option if you have a shipment of shiraz to move from the Barossa Valley to Port Adelaide or need to store cases of Riesling at your Clare Valley winery. NORs are also useful for shipping flowers, textiles, grains, cereals and other farm produce. High-performance insulation helps to maintain an ambient temperature and also combats condensation, the bane of all steel shipping containers.
In addition to being constructed from high-grade Corten steel, all our shipping containers comply with rigorous International Standards Organisation guidelines. They are also designed to be ‘intermodal’ meaning they can be transferred from train to truck to boat without unloading cargoes. This really streamlines the whole transfer process and keeps your costs to a minimum.
Multiple Uses of Refrigerated Shipping Containers
Shipping Containers Adelaide mainly supply reefers for haulage or storage purposes but they can also come in extremely handy in all sorts of other situations. With Adelaide’s average summer temperature hovering close to 30˚ centigrade, outdoor events can be something of a challenge for caterers trying to keep food and drinks cool. At a big sporting occasion or outdoor rock concert, no one wants to drink warm beer or wine but with a refrigerated shipping container everything can be kept perfectly chilled until required. We promise fast delivery by truck to your site and will handle the installation for you. You could hire a reefer for a short period or buy one and make it a permanent feature.
Refrigerated shipping containers are also regularly requested at remote sites in South Australia, like sheep and cattle stations or mining operations. Workers’ meals, for example, can be stored at the correct temperature and the chilled interiors also work well as retreats when the temperature soars to unbearably high levels.

Here at Shipping Containers Adelaide, we are seasoned experts in the modification of refrigerated shipping containers into an ever-expanding range of uses. If you are catering for a large number of diners at a large event, for example, but struggling to keep food cool, we can adapt a reefer by installing useful stainless steel shelving, preparation tables, serving hatches and butcher’s double doors. But that’s just the start of our amazing modification service, as we can also build homes, offices, shops and cafés, to mention just a few.
