Record-breaking reefer order from Hapag-Lloyd

Production of 970 20fts and 12,450 40fts is scheduled to commence this month, with delivery set for November 2019 – right in time for the reefer season, as that is when harvest season begins in countries in the southern hemisphere. Hapag-Lloyd declined to reveal the reefer machinery supplier or the container manufacturer.

 

It will primarily be fruits and vegetables, such as blueberries, cherries and avocados from Chile, Peru and elsewhere, but also fish and meat that will be making their way to consumers in these containers. Hapag-Lloyd reefers are also used worldwide to transport goods that are sensitive to high temperatures, including pharmaceuticals and blood plasma as well as foodstuffs.

 

“With this new order, we will be expanding our transport capacities for our customers. They will now have at their disposal over 100,000 state-of-the-art refrigerated containers with a total capacity of 210,000 TEU, some of which will be equipped with the latest controlled atmosphere technology, which slows the ripening process during transport, thereby extending the shelf life of fruit and vegetables”, explains Niklas Ohling, Senior Director Container Steering at Hapag-Lloyd.

 

The production of the reefer containers will also be the starting signal for the fleet-wide equipping of reefers with the latest IoT monitoring technology. As has been previously announced, Hapag-Lloyd has selected the Globe Tracker system for reefer monitoring, and will market its remote monitoring services under the name Hapag-Lloyd LIVE.

 

The product features of Hapag-Lloyd LIVE will be gradually made available to customers as the installation of the equipment proceeds and will offer real-time GPS positioning, information on the temperature inside the container, and systems for notifications and alarm management, among other features.

 

“In recent years, we have continuously invested in the expansion and modernisation of the reefer fleet. We have consolidated our leading position in this market segment and can offer our customers outstanding quality in the transport of temperature-sensitive goods on all trades routes,” Ohling adds.

Hapag-LLoyd is adding a further 25,870 TEU of refrigerated container capacity to its fleet
