Purfresh Transport technology purifies air and surfaces inside the container, helping to eliminate moulds, yeasts and microscopic bacteria that can attack and ruin a container-load of perishables. Produce quality is preserved-without the use of undesirable chemicals, resulting in better firmness, weight, sugar content, taste and value.
“The Purfresh Transport system can help assure goods reach their destinations in optimal condition, maximising our customers’ return on investment.” said Luke DiMaggio, Carrier Transicold general manager, Global Service Operations, Container Products.
The Purfresh Transport service can improve customer profitability by reducing typical loss related to decay and food degradation, thus improving the yield of perishable cargoes, according to DiMaggio. “Globally, up to 20% of post-harvest losses on average occur during transit. Purfresh technology utilises ozone to help eliminate bacteria that spoils cargo and profits for growers, exporters, importers and shipping lines, “he said.
