Reefer Cargo

  • Transitex can help with the indication of the ideal temperature, humidity and ventilation to transport a specific cargo, but if we talk namely about fruits and vegetables, the shipper must also know the condition of his cargo, as far as harvest and storage until the stuffing.

  • Transitex can provide a solution of a cold warehouse, where cargo must be delivered for stuffing on the container

  • Transitex can provide a system of geo localization that will give reports if the temperature will be in a different range than the one asked for.

  • Using the geo localization system, alarms will be received if the range of temperature will not be respected during the transit

  • Transitex has reefer teams around the world, so you can use our contacts page to address any country regarding reefer cargo.
    You can also use our main direct contacts for reefer teams, such as:
