*** Sea Red Sail company has been tried to collate the other companies
experiences in addition of his own for submitting good services through Iranian ports to Astrakhan; Makhachkala and Aktau and other point in the world to owner of transit cargo and other customers as well.
I should have added that Sea Red Sail company can provide any types of containers especially refrigerated containers from Iran to all countries with favorable price and services.
***Containers: Containerization is a very effective method of transporting refrigerated cargo.
Continuous refrigeration between point of origin and destination and the elimination of multiple handling required in conventional break-bulk shipments have drastically reduced in-transit damage and loss of these products.
The advantages of one handling at point of loading and point of discharge are especially apparent when compared to the conventional cargo system with its multiple handlings
*from warehouse to rail,
*through the terminal and aboard ship,
*discharge at port as destination, and
*reloading again to truck or rail for final delivery.
Each handling is labor intensive, increases the potential for damageand loss, and interrupts the refrigeration process.
***Receiving refrigerated cargo: The receiving process in the terminal is critical and must be performed under systematic control. Many shipping contractors employ experienced cargo surveyors, who are present during the receiving process
*to ensure that the cargo is received in the proper condition for shipment,
*to ensure that the cargo is properly stored on containers or aboard ship, and
*to ensure that the cargo does not remain in open storage in theterminal without refrigeration for an extended period of time.
***Advantages of containers:

- Less damage to container during carriage.
- Prevent of pilfering.
- Less handling time at port, and save money.

***Disadvantages of containers:
