Hi all,

Reefers are one of my favourite types of ships, i never saw one until i visited the New Waterway in the mid eighties.
Could anyone tell me which port is considered to be the busiest (geared) reefer port in the world, Bangkok must be a contender.
There are currently 8 reefers in port.

Valparaiso, Chile is one busy port in the summer season, however and due to the high capacity of the container ships to carry refrigerated containers the number of reefers has disminished.

Regards

Tomi.

Hi Tomislav,

thanks for the information.
I recently counted 12 reefers in port at Bangkok on Marine Traffic.

The fruit export season begins in Chile, for 5 months many reefers go and return almost the majority to the United States, we have only recently taken the third ship with its shipments, if you like see the link, it is my collection of reefers .
Cheers..
