What we do

Coldtainer offers flexible, efficient and economical solutions for temperature-controlled storage and delivery, when traditional solutions (insulated refrigerated vehicle) are not ideal for the application.

Coldtainers are a convenient, portable and cost effective technology for transporting food, medical and pharmaceutical supplies when precise temperature control and freeze protection capabilities are needed. A highly versatile and reliable solution for temperature-controlled transportation, Coldtainers operate on AC or DC power, and are available in front opening or top loading models in a wide range of capacities and with numerous cooling, freezing and heating options.

Made from highly durable molded polyethylene and food-grade materials, Coldtainers are equipped with refrigeration units designed to withstand vibrations related to vehicle use. The portable, stand-alone temperature controlled containers feature an integrated battery monitor and a user-friendly digital display to view temperature and status, and for precise temperature set point control. Coldtainers also record temperatures and have a mobile Bluetooth capability for downloading data to meet recordkeeping requirements.


Coldtainer has offered innovative solutions 12V mobile refrigerators since 1993, starting with the first small fully recyclable portable fridge designed and built at the beginning of the business. Coldtainer is an evolutionary program that sees the constant introduction of new features, new models and new concepts of use. Coldtainer’s Research and Development Team is currently working to further develop the AuO concept of fridge with built-in battery to make it increasingly suitable for use on electric vehicles for urban distribution and also for the development of large containers for logistics, as well as in the AuO version.


  • Double-walled single body construction, without joints and thermal bridges, with rounded internal corners.


  • Light and resistant, equipped with a perfect dimensional and qualitative constancy, piece by piece. Perfect thermal insulation, thanks to the consistency of the combination between the outer walls of the polyethylene containers (PE, food grade and resistant to UV rays) and the polyurethane foam insulation (PU) injected into the cavities.


  • 12V refrigeration units designed to combine the best performance with the lowest energy consumption, resistant to continuous use even in the presence of constant vibrations.


  • Available features thanks to Coldtainer’s know-how in the design and production of large containers to be built with rotational molding technology (and related production equipment), as well as in the design and construction of tens of thousands of 12V refrigeration units produced in 25 years of activity.
