Benefits of Non-Operating Reefer (NOR) to Customers
Every year container shipping industry spends billions of dollars carrying empty reefer and dry containers to market demand locations around the world – which is logistically challenging and also inefficient in operations. NORs offer an opportunity to solve this problem thereby also contribute to reducing container shipping industry’s carbon foot prints.
Offering of Non-Operating Reefer (NOR) or Reefer as Dry (RAD), is to minimize empty reefer repositioning cost in Dry Dominant/Reefer Non-Dominant legs, especially out of Asia. ONE allows the use of reefer containers in non-operating mode to carry “approved” dry cargo to reefer demand origins. This type of cargo is known as NOR or RAD and is approved for packing into refrigerated containers for transportation without the refrigeration machinery being switched on. ONE’s NORs transport your dry cargo in a clean, food-grade insulated container with capabilities to protect against extreme shift in outside temperature.
SUPERIOR QUALITY OF CONTAINERS:
Reefer containers are generally used to carry perishable commodities only; hence quality and cleanliness of the containers surpass that of normal dry containers.
MINIMIZE TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATION:
Due to higher insulation quality of a Reefer container, NORs minimize temperature fluctuation impact to cargo during day and night. Typically commodities which are sensitive to temperature fluctuations are Chemicals/electronics devices/films/beans in bags etc.
PROTECTION AGAINST CONDENSATION AND MOISTURE:
Due to higher insulation quality of a Reefer container, NORs also provide protection to cargo against condensation and moisture.
IMMEDIATE BOOKING ACCEPTANCE, EQUIPMENT GUARANTEE, LOADING PRIORITY:
In trade lanes where ONE face typical reefer equipment imbalance, using NORs can also provide benefits to shippers such as immediate booking acceptance, equipment guarantees, loading priority over dry (although 'live' Reefer boxes will always take priority over NORs).
