Explanation:
I think you made the context perfectly clear, so there is no need for explanations about "moduler" systems in any technical field.

To make it simple:

For a freezer it's a drawer.
An ordinary fridge has SHELVES (singular: shelf)

Take a look at Whirlpool's website for reference.

Rack


Explanation:
An Einschub is, in many technical cases, a slide-in module or unit, but that doesn't seem to fit your case here. A rack (literally an Einschubschrank) seems to be the one thing the list is missing.
Maybe this will give you a push in the right direction.

Explanation:
If you would like just one word, how about "compartmentation"

drawer


Explanation:
If it's a fridge, I suppose they mean the box at the bottom to stuff vegetables in. Of course, drawer would be wonderful for a freezer too.
Mind you, my fridge also has additional shelves you can slide in as required.
If you do not want to be specific, take "insert".

Inserts


Explanation:
I would use the words inserts itself since it is not particularly pointed out if these inserts are shelves or drawers.
Have a great day!

Drawer, tray


Explanation:
"Einschub" in technical usage has myriad meanings but in the context of a freezer you would need to use drawer or tray. However! If the text is referring to any form of modular industrial cooling system, "Einschub" may well be an element of the system, a module or unit, so beware of the context!
