The purchase price is only the tip of the iceberg of the true cost of owning and operating a reefer. There is more to be considered when determining the best value buy, which is what we call Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

TCO covers all known and expected costs related to a reefer during its entire expected working life. These include: 

  • Maintenance - repair and spare part costs
  • Reduced availability during maintenance
  • Residual value
  • Energy consumption
  • Environment - both direct effect and marketing value to customers
  • Spare parts - availability and quality

Certain features add more value to the product than others, but there is no doubt that one of the most significant costs during a reefer's life is energy consumption.

Maersk Container Industry thinks like an owner and operator of reefers and understands the real-life situations facing the industry. This why we design and manufacture our reefer boxes and reefer machines using innovative techniques and the latest technologies to achieve the lowest possible TCO.

All reefers are designed to minimise Total Cost of Ownership
