This case focuses on the malfunction of a reefer container, due to variance in temperature.
A reefer container with perishable cargo was being exported. At the Trans-shipment port it was noticed that the container was malfunctioning; also due to temperature variance, ice formation was visible. If the ice had built up to the T-Floor (ventilation flap), then reworking would have become a necessity, which could have resulted not only in the deterioration of the perishable cargo, but could also have led to huge potential losses.
Immediately on being informed about the malfunctioning, a Goodrich technician instructed his Trans-shipment Port counterpart to remove the reefer machinery, and assess the heater chamber and air stream, to help clear the clogged ice. The ice built up to the T-Floor was averted. The container was repaired by the port and the unit started maintaining the desired temperature.
A Surveyor was arranged to ensure that cargo temperature was maintained at the time of repairs, and the cargo was loaded on the vessel as per plan.
A SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) was initiated as a guideline.
