Reefer container monitoring at C. Steinweg in Hamburg

Hamburg 11-04-2017 - Unique for the Port of Hamburg: a fully-automatic system for monitoring reefer containers has been introduced at Steinweg in Hamburg. At C. Steinweg (Süd-West Terminal) multi-purpose cargo handling facility a monitoring device tag is attached magnetically to every incoming reefer container at C. Steinweg as an automatic link with the container’s controller.


So instead of manual checks by staff for normal functioning, temperature, humidity and other parameters, this CTAS Reefer System records, notifies and processes all data fully automatically. This is on its turn linked with C. Steinweg’s terminal operating system (TOS), completely integrating reefer container processes in terminal operation. All data handled remain archived in the system and can be retrieved in the event of enquiries or insurance cases.

With this system Steinweg hopes to attract more new customers for its multi-purpose terminal in Hamburg. In addition to conventional general cargoes, the customers are now shipping more export reefer containers. For further information please contact hamburg@de.steinweg.com
