The invention relates to an insulated container (100) comprising side walls (110, 120), a bottom wall (130), a top wall (140), a rear wall and a front wall, wherein the walls each comprise an inner face (112, 122, 132, 142) and an outer face (111, 121, 131, 141) and an insulating layer (150) of insulating material, the insulated container further comprising temperature control fluid distribution means (103) for distributing temperature control fluid in the insulated container (100), wherein the temperature control fluid distribution means (103) comprise at least two ducts (165, 175, 185, 195) being adapted to guide the temperature control fluid along the side walls (110, 120) of the container (100) and having each at least one orifice (164, 174, 184, 194) being adapted to allow a flow of temperature control fluid from one side wall (110) of the container (100); to the other side wall (120) of the container (100). Furthermore, the invention relates to a method for cooling cargo (25) in an insulated container (100).
