Sinokor Merchant Marine Company is acquiring 1,700 new containers refrigerated by Carrier Transicold PrimeLINE units, as it aims to raise its capacity to transport perishable cargo around Asia.
The new reefers, which are a combination of 1,000 40-ft, high-cube and 700 20-ft boxes, will expand the South Korean company’s container inventory.
They will be used to serve routes in the Asia Pacific region, covering China, Vietnam, Thailand and Korea.
Hun Heo, manager of the container management team, Sinokor, said: “Besides its leadership in energy efficiency, the PrimeLINE unit’s reliability reduces maintenance requirements resulting in lower lifecycle cost, and the unit has proven itself to be the preferred choice among our customers who ship sensitive perishable cargo, such as durian.”
PrimeLINE units feature a digital scroll compressor that aims to offer low energy consumption, fast temperature pull-down, tight temperature control, high air-flow performance and a low cost of ownership.
Leow Eng Meng, director of container sales, Asia Pacific at Carrier Transicold, said: “We are pleased to support Sinokor’s expansion as it grows to support perishable and frozen commerce throughout the region.”
