Evergreen strikes reefer deal with Maersk Container Industry

Evergreen Marine Corp. has selected Star Cool as the approved machine for its reefer operations. This decision follows a series of trials that lasted for most of 2019. Evergreen’s initial order is for 1,800 Star Cool reefers from Maersk Container Industry (MCI), scheduled for delivery during the second quarter of 2020.

The Taiwanese shipping company ran live trials of several reefer machines, evaluating the performance of the individual reefers, cargo care and service support. “These and other important total costs of ownership parameters resulted in Evergreen placing their first Star Cool order and entering into a long-term relationship with MCI, according to a statement.

Evergreen commented: “When we began the process of selecting a new brand for our reefer fleet, we were looking for the ability to offer our customers the most reliable service as well as the documented lowest carbon footprint, which made Star Cool a clear choice.”
