What cargo do we not carry in reefers and why?
Cargo, damaging the interior of the container as well as some commodities certified as dangerous cargo, cannot be accepted in our reefer containers. If the shipper is in doubt, the shipper should always contact the local Maersk Line agent for advice.
Why do I have to cover the container floor?
Uncovered floor must be covered with cardboard or other material, to optimize the vertical airflow through the commodity and packaging material. Lack of covering up the floor space may generate small “chimneys”, allowing air to bypass the cargo.
