Maersk Line orders 14,800 reefers

Bremen, Germany: Maersk Line has ordered 14,800 reefer containers in 2016, bringing down the average age of its fleet to 7.9 years – well below the industry average of 12 years.

The new reefers feature built-in Remote Container Management (RCM) technology which turns each reefer into a digitally connected device and provides enhanced visibility and care to cargo across Maersk Line’s entire reefer fleet.

Shereen Zarkani, head of reefer management, said: “We continue to invest and modernize our reefer fleet to include the latest technologies in supply chain visibility and cargo care. With the new equipment we will offer even stronger products across the reefer portfolio – enhancing transparency and care to our customers’ perishable products across Maersk Line’s extensive network.”

Maersk Line operates over 270,000 reefers.
