Our reefer experts
We have improved our reefer container fleet but more importantly, we have ensured we train and develop teams of reefer experts in our agencies around the world. At MSC, we understand the importance of preserving the condition of our customers’ cargo from the moment it is loaded until the moment it reaches its delivery point. Over the years, we have built strong experience and expertise in transporting chilled and frozen goods – commodities including fresh produce such as fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, poultry, dairy products and pharmaceuticals.
Our 1,000 reefer experts will support you through each step of the preparation of your refrigerated shipment.

MSC’s subsidiary Medlog has invested in trucks, warehouses, and depots and manages its operation with a team of 5,000 people. Combined with our investment in ports and terminals – MSC has become a true logistics provider.
Our pre-trip inspections
One of the principal aims of our reefer teams is to provide our customers with the very best service and equipment to fulfil their requirements. We carry out a thorough ‘pre-trip’ inspection (PTI) of each reefer container before it is released to a customer. This inspection includes:
- Cleaning to eliminate dirt and odours
- Checks to ensure the inside of the container is up to food-grade specification
- Checks to ensure machinery is functioning to industry standard
- Making sure the container temperature is lowered to the correct point selected
Once the checks have been completed, the date, time and the name of the person who completed the inspection is documented on a label attached to the container. This means you will always receive clean, undamaged, safe containers and temperature-maintaining machinery, all in perfect condition.
