With our Sortie and Stuffie containers your fish and seafood get to market quicker and are fresher upon arrival.
How it works?
Your cargo is containerised at port, direct from the fishing vessel. The catch is loaded through hatches in the top of the Sortie/Stuffie container and immediately chilled or frozen, thereby optimising your cold/frozen supply chain.
Sortie and Stuffie containers perform the same function, but up to five reefer or Super Freeze containers can be connected to a Sortie container. This means that the catch can also be sorted as it is discharged from the fishing vessel. An airtight seal ensures full refrigeration between the connected containers throughout the process.

With our brine frozen tuna solution, you can enjoy all the benefits of containerised shipping, including:
Certain cargo needs to be shipped at ultra-low temperatures, such as frozen tuna for the Japanese sushi and sashimi markets. That is why we developed the Super Freezer container.
Super Freezer containers maintain a constant temperature that can be as low as -60°C (-76°F). You cargo can be loaded as processed, as fillets or as whole fish, and will remain super-frozen for the entire journey.
Super Freezer containers give you:
What kinds of commodities benefit from Super Freezer transportation?
Deep-frozen commodities, such as sea urchins, swordfish, and specifically tuna benefit from being transported at -60°C.
