Cargo in focus: Refrigerated cargoes

Cargo advice refrigerated cargoesIn collaboration with the cargo experts at CWA International, The Swedish Club has produced cargo advice to assist our members in the daily operation of their vessels.

This month, we wish to highlight the refrigerated cargo advice. A wide variety of refrigerated goods are carried in reefer containers of which fresh produce, frozen meat & fish, dairy products and pharmaceuticals are only a few.

A single reefer container may carry a cargo value of several hundred thousand US dollars or more. Refrigerated cargoes are one of the most common types of cargoes involved in cargo claims. Each type of cargo varies in its requirements for carriage temperature, humidity, stowage arrangements and ventilation. By adhering to the recommendations given in the advice, the risk of suffering a claim will be reduced.
