Our export services to Trinidad also covers refrigerated shipping.  Our export team regularly handles foodstuffs for temperature controlled shipping to Trinidad, transporting goods such as chocolate and confectionery in refrigerated containers.  Depending upon the commodity and the sensitivity of the goods, you may need a genset for delivery to the port in the UK.  A genset allows the container to be provided with power to run at the set temperature whilst it is in transit to the port for export.  Once the container is loaded onto the shipping vessel, it will be powered by the onboard power of the ship, ensuring that your temperature sensitive goods are shipped to Trinidad safely.
