1. Perform Regular Maintenance

Regular maintenance of your Power Packs and PortaPacks is key to ensuring they function optimally during a storm. Check for any signs of wear and tear, ensure fuel levels are adequate, and test the systems to make sure they are operating correctly. Preventive maintenance can help you avoid unexpected failures when you need power the most.

2. Secure Your Equipment

During a hurricane, high winds and flying debris can pose significant risks to your equipment. Secure your Power Packs and PortaPacks by anchoring them properly and protecting the cable ports with additional suitable covers. This will minimize the risk of damage and ensure that your power supply remains uninterrupted.


3. Have a Backup Plan

Despite the best preparations, sometimes things can still go wrong. Having a backup plan in place is essential. Consider having additional Power Packs or PortaPacks on standby, and ensure your team knows how to quickly navigate your freight yard and manage units if necessary. This redundancy can be a lifesaver during extended power outages.

4. Monitor Weather Conditions

Stay informed about upcoming weather conditions and be proactive in your preparations. If a hurricane is forecasted, ensure that all reefer containers are adequately powered and that your generators are in prime working condition. Early preparation can make all the difference in maintaining the integrity of your refrigerated goods.

Have a list of emergency contacts readily available, including your generator service provider, local utility companies, and emergency services. Quick access to these contacts can expedite repairs and assistance in case of equipment failure during a storm.

6. Conduct Emergency Drills

Regularly conduct emergency drills with your team to ensure everyone knows their roles and responsibilities during a hurricane. Practicing these scenarios will help your team respond swiftly and efficiently, minimizing downtime and potential losses.
