Refrigerated Containers answer cold storage needs in remote locations

July 31, 2023

Refrigerated containers, also known as reefers, play a crucial role in supporting cold storage needs in remote sites during the growth and development of the Middle East. The team at Almar Middle East is enthusiastic about the region's expansion and progress. They recognise the advantages of utilising both standard dry containers and refrigerated containers to support storage needs in remote locations.

Here are some ways refrigerated containers answer cold storage needs in remote locations during expansion in the Middle East:

  1. Preservation of Perishable Goods: Refrigerated containers are designed to maintain a controlled temperature environment, allowing the storage of perishable goods such as fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy products, and pharmaceuticals. Reefers provide a reliable solution for preserving these goods and reducing food waste.
  2. Temporary Storage Solutions: During periods of expansion or development in remote sites, refrigerated containers can easily be deployed to such areas to provide immediate cold storage solutions until more substantial infrastructure is built.
  3. Flexibility and Mobility: Reefers are portable and versatile, allowing for easy transportation and repositioning as storage needs evolve.
  4. Handling Temperature-Sensitive Materials: Beyond food and agricultural products, refrigerated containers can also support the storage of temperature-sensitive materials like vaccines, medical supplies, and laboratory samples.
  5. Energy Efficiency and Sustainability: Modern refrigerated containers are designed to be energy-efficient, with advanced technologies that help reduce power consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
  6. Minimising Infrastructure Investment: Utilising refrigerated containers allows businesses and governments to establish cold storage quickly without the need for large-scale infrastructure construction.
  7. Facilitating Trade and Export: The Middle East has seen substantial growth in its trade and export activities, particularly in the agricultural and food sectors. Refrigerated containers enable these industries to transport their products to international markets while ensuring product quality and safety.

Refrigerated containers provide a valuable and flexible solution for cold storage needs in remote sites during the growth and development of the Middle East. By preserving perishable goods, extending shelf life, facilitating trade, and offering temporary storage solutions, reefers play a positive role in supporting the expansion and economic development of the region.
