Services offered at all sites include Inspection, chemical, steam, and water washing, and container refurbishment, CSC inspections, and plate renewals. All inspections are carried out by IICL5 qualified inspectors and repairs are to IICL5 standards. Materials used are as per the Industries specifications and an extensive stock of spare parts carried at all depots. Closed water recycle systems are in use for the dedicated washing bays. Reefer structural repairs can also be carried out including foaming of insulated panels and all major reefer structural parts are carried in stock.

The depots also maintain and re-supply ship’s reefer kits, which can be stocked, and delivered to the vessels when calling at Khorfakkan or Sharjah.
There is computer controlled tracking system which monitors the position and status of each unit whilst in the depot and between depots and terminals, plus a daily reporting system for reefer monitoring. Reports and estimates are computer generated and can be sent automatically at short notice by the following systems: Fax, E-mail, CEDEX, CODECO, WESTIM, DESTIM. We are also able to organize other EDI-connections if required. DepotSmart and IAS systems are also in use at the depots.
Another successful aspect of the business is minor ship repair work, such as cell guide damage, hatch lid repairs, and other minor structural repairs, which can be carried out within the ship’s call timeframe at Khorfakkan without disruption to the cargo operations. A good stock of A36 steel plate and cell guide profiles are kept for most emergencies. A 24 hour service is offered for ship repair.
