Reefer containers necessitate a higher level of manufacturing technique for refrigerated container manufacturers, and only five factories in the world are capable of producing large scale RF containers, with the majority of them based in China. DFIC owns two reefer factories that produce high-quality reefer shipping containers through long-term automation technology investment and development.
The common reefer container dimension is 20ft and 40 ft. The external length of 20ft reefer container is 20ft, width is 8ft and height is 8ft6. The external length of 40ft reefer container is 40ft, width is 8ft and height 9tf 6.

A reefer container is a type of ship carrying containers that keeps its cargo cool and regulated. Reefers are necessary for fresh food such as fruit, meat, fish, vegetables, dairy, as well as non-food items such as flowers and pharmaceuticals. Reefer container operations are often conducted on vessel or shore power during shipping. A generator supplies portable power to the reefers during rail or truck transport, the air freight versions are intended to maintain temperature for up to around 100 hours.
DFIC Qingdao (DFQT) and Qidong (DFQD) factories own the most updated technology and working spaces to manufacture reefer cargo containers. DFQT reefer production line covers 2.9 million square feet, and DFQD factory reefer line covers 1 million square feet. A high-quality container reefer unit not only depends on the manufacture craft but also the quality of chemical foaming, cooling machine, and the way of using. Therefore, DFIC will control each process during production to ensure cargo won’t be ruined during the travel.
There are more various and complicated factors that affect refrigerated container price than that of dry freight container. The main factors include original material prices like Polyurethane, steel price, etc., and the government policy control may affect the production effectiveness, too. Therefore, the refrigerated container cost is unstable these days especially since the global pandemic is one of the biggest factors affecting the price.
