DFDS buys 25 new reefers

Earlier this year we purchased 25 new 45-foot reefer containers to meet a growing demand from customers, and this month we have purchased another 25 new ones.

This is due to an additional increase in the reefer business across the logistics sector, mainly from the Netherlands to the UK and Ireland.

Jack Hodgson, Equipment Controller, says: “The expansion of the fleet will support the Equipment department in its fleet replacement programme for 2018/19. Fleet replacement is a key factor in giving our customers the best service possible because there comes a time when older equipment needs to be taken out of service due to its condition.”

The units were bought from Unit45 in Rotterdam, from whom we also bought the previous 25 reefers earlier this year and are also built at the FUWA factory in Guangdong. This takes our reefer fleet up to 623, a growth of 125 containers in just over 15 months.
