The HOYER Group has expanded its foodstuff tank container fleet with 50 new ISO Reefers, 25 of which have integrated stirrers.

A special feature of the new units are the refrigeration units attached to the tank containers, with the latest control technology and integrated stirrers. 

The system allows the HOYER Group to guarantee the required temperature is maintained during the entire transport movement within the whole tank space evenly – from loading to unloading.

Parameters are defined according to the respective product. Guaranteeing the quality of sensitive liquid foods such as fruit juices, alcoholic drinks, liquid yeast and many other products, even on lengthy transport journeys.

Brian Woudsma, Global Food Director of the HOYER Group, explains, “The HOYER Group is a specialist for intermodal transport operations to meet the food sector’s high demands in the overseas area.” 

“With customised logistics solutions, we have made a strong name for ourselves in the market. This greatly increased the demand for transport services, which led us to take further strategic steps.”

The heart of the ISO Reefer tank container is the telematics system integrated into the refrigeration controller. As part of its digitalisation campaign, the HOYER Group is progressively equipping all its tank containers with telematics to measure parameters including location, temperature, pressure and filling level.

More than half of the fleet is already “Smart”, and the entire tank container fleet, currently 40,800 units, is scheduled to be equipped as Smart Tanks by the end of 2021.
