Terms & Glossaries of Shipping and Trading


T-floor is the interior floor in a reefer, so named because of the longitudinal T-shaped rails which support the cargo and form a plenum for air flow beneath the shipment.

What is T-floor?

T-floor is a type of flooring used in refrigerated containers, also known as reefers. The T-floor is designed to allow for the circulation of air underneath the cargo, which helps to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the container. The T-shaped design of the flooring allows for easy drainage of any condensation or other moisture that may accumulate during transport. This helps to prevent damage to the cargo and ensures that it arrives at its destination in good condition. T-flooring is commonly used for the transportation of perishable goods such as fruits, vegetables, and meat.
