Loading Process and Inspection Steps for Cooler Shipping Containers in Renting and Checking Procedures

Problems easily encountered during the loading process of cooler shipping containers

Cooler shipping containers are likely to encounter problems during use, and we will discuss them below for your reference.

  • Loading of goods. The maximum load limit of goods in the refrigerated container must not exceed the red load line, as it may affect the circulation of cold air and may even result in poor or no insulation effect.

  • The temperature of the goods themselves must be consistent with the set temperature, otherwise damage may occur.

  • Cooling with the refrigerated container door open may cause water to condense on the coils of the condenser.

  • During loading, ensure the quality of the socket used and the stability of voltage to avoid voltage instability that may result in container damage.

  • The goods need to be pre-cooled before being put into the container to achieve the optimum temperature and maximize their shelf life.

Above is all about cooler shipping containers. Here, let us remind you not to forget to prevent moisture.

Inspection steps for renting cooler shipping containers

When renting cooler shipping containers for shipment, inspections should be carried out on the inside and outside of the small container, tailgate, cleaning, accessories and other devices. The rental should check for damage, deformation, cracks, water seepage, and light transmission on all six sides inside and outside. Lastly, the support of the platform-type shipping container should also be inspected. The specific steps for renting cooler shipping containers are as follows:

  • External inspection: First, check for damage to the exterior of the shipping container, and check whether there is a vent hole, etc. on the top of the container. For those that have been repaired, pay attention to their current condition and whether there is any water seepage.

  • Internal inspection: Close the tailgate and check for any areas where light is leaking through the refrigerated container.

  • Tailgate inspection: Check whether the tailgate can be opened and closed successfully, whether everything is normal during loading and transportation when it is opened 270 degrees, whether it is tightly sealed when closed, whether the door handle is flexible, and whether the tailgate can be completely locked.

  • Accessory inspection: Check whether the rings, holes, plate racks, and canvas and sling equipment used on the platform-type shipping and open-top shipping containers, liquid storage tanks and drain valves, ventilation ducts, and ventilation holes are all complete and perfect.

  • Cleaning inspection: Check whether there is any waste, foul smell, or rust in the refrigerated container for shipping.
