DP World has also introduced - the Remote Reefer Container Monitoring System or Refcon at its Jebel Ali Port. Refcon enables port operators to respond quickly to emergencies and eliminate idle periods. Any temperature problems or other irregularities within a refrigerated container or reefer, triggers an alarm in the terminals control office, which then sends a mechanic to investigate. This technology will help us satisfy our customer’s requirements and assure a high standard of operation.

The establishment of this system is yet another step towards meeting our customer’s needs. Reefer operators can track their cargo boxes throughout their journey via remote access.
