Ocean Network Express (ONE) has added 3,000 Carrier Transicold PrimeLINE units to its refrigerated container fleet, via Florens container leasing, to address growing perishable cargo demand.
Bharadwaj Bhuyan, senior manager-global special cargo management, ONE, said: “Despite the challenges faced by the global economy in recent times, ONE continues to invest in expanding our reefer fleet, which proves that global refrigerated trade remains in high demand.
“The reliability and energy efficiency of the PrimeLINE unit is unmatched for the transport perishable cargo like protein and fresh fruit. We rely on the proven rapid temperature pull-down and high air-flow performance of these units.”
The units are meant to specialise in delivering rapid temperature pull-down, tight temperature control, high air-flow performance and low cost of ownership.
Efficiency is attributed primarily to their advanced digital scroll compressor, which reduces power draw from the unit, and reduced carbon dioxide emissions.
Owen Chan, vice president of Florens, technical and operations, stated: “Container leasing customers continue to cite reliability and energy efficiency as the top reasons they choose Carrier Transicold’s PrimeLINE units for refrigerated cargo shipping, especially when seeking a unit with deep-frozen capacity.”
