Temperature-sensitive cargo requires the care of a shipping company that knows and understands reefer shipping, one that offers a personalized, flexible service and is committed to meeting and exceeding the needs of its customers. Shipping perishable cargo is core to Safmarine's business. We have provided shipping services for more than 100 years and have built a reputation for having a "passion for perishables".
We are here to advise you on the ideal temperature settings for your cargo, how to prepare your cargo for shipment, how to pack your container as well as information on landside restrictions and other local regulations.
We recognize the importance of delivering containers on time and to keep to published sailing schedules. In addition we recognize that calling at the right ports, providing accurate invoices and bills of lading are key to the success of your business.
While goods shipped in refrigerated containers may differ significantly from customer to customer, all shippers share the need for efficient logistical support, accurate temperature control, access to equipment manufactured to the highest standards and one cold chain from source to shelf.
