Maersk Line's investment in 14,800 reefer containers in 2016 has driving the average age of its reefer container fleet down to 7.9 years, well below industry average.
While part of the purchased reefers will replace older equipment in the company's current 270,000 refrigerated containers, the investment will increase the company's reefer fleet and prepare Maersk Line for future growth in the reefer segment.
We continue to invest and modernize our reefer fleet to include the latest technologies in supply chain visibility and cargo care. With the new equipment we will offer even stronger products across the reefer portfolio – enhancing transparency and care to our customers’ perishable products across Maersk Line’s extensive network.- Head of Reefer Management, Maersk Line
The new reefers feature built-in Remote Container Management (RCM) technology that turns each reefer into a digitally connected device, and provides enhanced visibility and care to cargo across Maersk Line’s entire reefer fleet.
