Washes are carried out to Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF) standards and to customer specifications. Up to 32 containers at a time can be handled through the wash facility. 



Port Nelson has 128 reefer power points for pre-tripping of empty reefer containers, a convenient service that is offered at competitive rates through third parties.

  • Pre-tripping containers range from controlled atmosphere, refrigerated, freezers or super-freezers (-65 degrees).
