This reefer unit was the first reefer container in Europe with sufficient cargo capacity to handle 33 euro-pallets. This ingeniously designed lightweight container is constructed using an ideal combination of aluminum and high-strength steel. Not only does this reefer unit require a lower investment than reefer trailers, it is also durable and requires little maintenance. 

A innovative and a reliable coolingsystem

A built-in cooling system that saves cargo space has been developed and can be supplied under a service contract and a track and trace system. These systems combine maximum cooling capacity with excellent energy-economy. The reefer is finished on the inside with a flat aluminum floor, with the layout of the cargo security system being entirely to the customer's specifications.

Flexible options for all you transport needs

UNIT45 offers you a various selection of reefers meeting your requirements. Not only does UNIT45 offer you the all-electric reefer and the diesel-electric reefer but also the double-stack all-electric reefer as well as the double-stack diesel-electric reefer, all pallet wide!

Why choose our 45ft reefers?

1. Reliable and cost effective
2. Compatible with 40ft infrastructure
3. Sustainable and environmentally friendly
4. Available in many different versions 

Considering the more strict food and pharma safety regulations, controlling the transport of perishable goods and pharmaceuticals has become more important than ever.  UNIT45 therefore offers you, as an option on our diesel-electric and all-electric reefers, the certainty that you can monitor your transport at all times by using GPRS, GPS and satellite technology. This way, at any point, you know the location of your refrigerated cargo.

Tailormade and suitable container solutions

All UNIT45 containers are road-legal throughout the EU and are also well suited for transport on cellular (shortsea) and non-cellular container ships, ro-ro vessels, inland waterway barges and rail wagons due to their chamfered corner post and euro corner castings.
The precise specification of our container can be modified to meet differing needs. The height and width can be varied to meet customers’ need or restrictions on certain routes.

UNIT45 design is constantly revised to take account of new technology, materials and environment as they become available and proven in service. All our 45ft containers are painted with self-cleaning waterborne paint.
