Transport systems

Flexible food transport systems 

thermoport® stainless steel & plastic

The Rieber thermoport® range offers the perfect solution for the requirements of food transport at sea or for enjoyment above the clouds – the mobile kitchen for the systemic transport of food in a GN system. The food therefore comes from the central production kitchen to the various serving stations and restaurants on board with the best food quality and absolute transport safety.

The product range comprises various models that are ideally suited for in-house or off-site transport – whether in a light plastic version or in high-quality stainless steel, for optimum handling as a top or frontloader variant. Whether heated, unheated or chilled, it is perfectly equipped for any use in a variety of size options – the standardised system suitable for the individual requirements of your catering. For an even wider variety of options, Rieber thermoport® made of plastic and stainless steel can be stacked together and placed on transport or serving trolleys – for slip-resistant and safe transport. All thermoport® can be equipped with CHECK sensors so that you can also ensure complete and automatic temperature documentation during transport. Clear identification and connection to the CHECK CLOUD are possible with the QR code.

Banquet trolleys

For a first-class banquet on cruise ships, we sure have the right solution for all requirements with the various banquet options. Whether small or large gala dinners, congresses, conferences or events – no banquet is the same as the other, but perfect quality should always be served hot or cold at the same time. Our banquet trolleys offer flexible and mobile solutions with their wide range of functions precisely for these requirements. The pre-portioned food can simply be left in a preheated or refrigerated banquet trolley until it is are served without affecting the quality and even delayed events do not pose a problem. 

Our banquet trolleys in different variants for optimal transport, the hot/cold holding of food ready for serving and for the simultaneous serving of food in a GN or plate system on GN grilles. Reliable for use at any banquet for food cooked to perfection, from the portioning to the consumption. All variants are available with a single or double cabinet compartment, in which GN 2/1 grilles and GN containers and also GN-thermoplates® can be directly inserted. The pre-portioned plates can be transported on the grilles with an additional plate carrier (for 6 plates), covered with cloches for optimal protection of the food. 

For even more flexibility, the heated versions can be heated reliably, both wet and dry. With dry heating, significant energy savings can be made and also less cleaning of the base well is required. This means that you have the perfect solution in terms of energy and process efficiency.
