DFDS expands its fleet of 45-foot reefer containers again

There they are. Our new reefer containers just arrived from China. “We expect to take delivery of more containers again next year,” Claus Thamdrup says.

And then they were finally delivered. It took some time but it is difficult to keep up with DFDS’ need for 45-foot reefer containers (refrigerated and freezer containers) these days. After the last delivery of 70 brand new containers from China, DFDS now owns more than 600 45-foot reefer containers, twice as many as in 2013. And this marked segment is big business. “We have adopted a targeted approach to generate growth in this area by utilising our large shipping network and multiple departures to sell the product in head-on competition with road-based trailer transport,” says Claus Thamdrup, who is responsible for the container fleet at Logistics.
