Crowley. People who know refrigerated cargo.
Having the right reefer equipment is only part of the equation when it comes to shipping perishables successfully. The true difference lies in the expertise and helpfulness of the Crowley staff. Our reefer cargo experts are here to recommend the right equipment, explain packing techniques to achieve proper air circulation within the container, and monitor and track your shipment during the entire move. We perform computerized pre-trip diagnostics tests and cover a 22-item detailed checklist to ensure that each and every one of our containers is in top condition for packing. While shipments are in transit, we maintain temperature levels. Power packs and back up power sources are continually monitored via satellite. Each piece of equipment undergoes a yearly scheduled preventive maintenance service check.

Customs Brokerage for Fresh Fruits, Produce and other Perishables

Crowley has one of the most modern, advanced reefer shipping equipment fleets in the industry.
In recent years, Crowley has acquired hundreds of brand-new units, including 45' (102" wide) reefers for the Puerto Rico trade and 40' high-cube reefers for all our service areas. Each is built to Crowley's exacting standards for structural integrity, insulation, and freezer/chill capabilities. These units, combined with our 20' reefers and new 45' (102" wide) insulated containers, mean we've got you covered no matter what type, size, or quantity of perishable cargo you need to ship. Though they may differ in size, all Crowley reefers all have one thing in common - they're built with advanced microprocessors that keep temperatures stabilized to within plus or minus one-half degree Fahrenheit - even when it's 122ºF outside. Now that's dependable.
