Keep your ‘cool’ with DB Schenker’s Reefer solutions

Having an experienced logistics and transportation company as your ocean transport partner has never been more critical than in today’s demanding economy and business environment. If you are shipping temperature-sensitive goods, it is outright essential. With the rising global demand for perishable shipping, reefer units are in short supply, with shippers worldwide struggling to source enough containers to meet the ever-growing demand. In addition, with reduced productivity due to COVID-19 and the ensuing congestion at ports around the globe, reduced schedule reliability, increased transit times, and general lack of capacity, supply chains have been disrupted, and rates have gone through the roof. 

This is where DB Schenker can help. 

For over 85 years, DB Schenker has been offering a variety of ocean transport solutions for time-definite, door-to-door ocean delivery. As a registered and licensed NVOCC and forwarder, we ship more than 5,500 containers each day to ports around the world. Reefer or refrigerated shipping has become one of our fastest-growing businesses as more and more companies partner with us for their temperature-sensitive shipping needs.

There’s no margin for error when shipping temperature-sensitive goods

Providing customers with an uninterrupted flow of relevant data is critical to monitor the whereabouts of their temperature-sensitive shipments as well as the status of their content. DB Schenker’s Connect2Track does just that by providing 24/7 visibility for shipment tracking, temperature and humidity control, tilt, shock/motion/vibration, door alarms and more. As a result, DB Schenker can now know at any point-in-time the reefer’s condition data without having to physically monitor the process.
