SeaCube Containers has expanded its inventory with 5,000 new 40 ft high-cube containers refrigerated by Carrier Transicold PrimeLINE systems, as it looks to keep pace with shipping lines’ demand for leased reefer units.
The additions include 4,000 containers equipped with PrimeLINE refrigeration units and 1,000 PrimeLINE ONE refrigerated containers.
Bob Sappio, CEO of SeaCube, said: “We continue to specify Carrier Transicold for the majority of our refrigerated containers based primarily on our customers’ preferences.
“More often than not, our customers want the Carrier machine, and the workhorse PrimeLINE system remains the standard-bearer, while interest in PrimeLINE ONE continues to grow.”
The traditional PrimeLINE unit bolts to the front of an insulated shipping container while the PrimeLINE ONE unit features an assembled on-site design.
Both models feature a digital scroll compressor, meant to deliver energy efficiency, while offering rapid pull-down, tight temperature control, high air-flow performance and excellent cost of ownership according to the manufacturer.
Over the past year SeaCube has acquired 2,950 PrimeLINE ONE refrigerated containers, the most of any container leasing company.
Kartik Kumar, vice president and general manager, Carrier Global Container Refrigeration, stated: “SeaCube has long specified Carrier Transicold container refrigeration units, and we appreciate the opportunity to continue serving its needs with our popular PrimeLINE systems, which have been the industry leader in sales for more than a decade.”
