8.4.4   Summary
In order to evaluate the temperature records made during refrigerated transport, it is absolutely necessary to be able to differentiate between the various temperatures that occur/may occur inside a container. This begins with the difference between the supply air and return air temperatures, which has a physical cause, and, in particular, includes the influences of stowage methods on local temperatures. On the other hand, it one must always take into account the possible temperature increases and distributions in order to interpret the plausibility of the temperature records.
Although it was not taken into account here, knowledge of the behavior of the various different refrigerated container models is nevertheless also important. To summarize:
No temperature record can be interpreted with absolute clarity; it is always necessary to interpret the data in the context of the circumstances, in order to be able to make reliable statements about the state of the cargo.
