Reefer Stacking Area, Maher Terminal, Newark
The above photo displays the reefer stacking area at the Maher Terminal at the Port of New York and New Jersey, which has 990 reefer slots. Power outlets (poles) are provided for each row and up to 4 stacked reefers can be plugged. The small platform in the front is designed to be elevated by a fork lift so that a yard worker can plug or unplug a stacked reefer. The reefers at the forefront are respectively owned by the Israeli shipping line Zim and by the Taiwanese shipping line Evergreen.
