CMA CGM has launched the Reeflex, a containerised system to transport liquids by controlled temperature as an alternative to break bulk.
The solution allows or the transportation of liquids (juices, milk, compotes, syrup and all kind of oils) in a single bag with a capacity ranging from 12,000 to 24,000 litres.
It is available on reefer containers of 40 ft and can be installed in three minutes according to the French carrier.
Thanks to its external pumping system, the single-use recyclable bag is filled and emptied in 35 minutes, it noted in a statement.
Reeflex is designed to maintain the product’s nutritional and chemical properties thanks to a sterile environment and controlled temperatures precisely maintained between -35°C and +20°C.
Its system allows to fill up and empty the bag without someone being present in the container during these operations.
Eric Legros, deputy vice president of reefer at the carrier, said: “A pioneer with Aquaviva, a unique solution for the transportation of lobsters and shellfish, the group continues to innovate with the introduction of Reeflex, a state-of-the-art technology for an optimal transportation of liquids.”
The product was developed in partnership with Teconja, a German expert in juices, and Liqua, an expert in packaging solutions for the transportation of liquids.
