DL-RAK Tested for use in Non-Operating Reefers to replace wooden pallets

(31 August, 2017)

Non-Operating Reefers have specially designed metal floors with a "T-section" shape to control airflow when the refrigeration unit is in use. However, due to the delicate floor and reduced internal dimensions, they are often returned to source empty or only partially used. Until now, it has been very difficult to load vehicles into a NOR due to the reduced internal width making opening vehicle doors an impossibility. As the DL-RAK allows for loading vehicles without opening doors, cars could now be loaded utilising NORs, meaning that they would no longer be shipping thin air. This is not only beneficial for shippers as more containers can be used, but better for the environment as energy isn't wasted moving empty containers around the world.
