Hapag-Lloyd has installed monitoring devices in 100,000 reefers

Hapag-Lloyd has achieved the milestone of equipping 100,000 of its reefer containers with a monitoring device. The German carrier began to equip its box fleet with monitoring systems in 2020.

"Currently, new-built containers are being equipped with tracking devices directly upon completion in the factory, and the containers in our fleet are equipped during the regular Pre-Trip- Inspection (PTI) process by depots," said the company in a statement.

The biggest installation locations are Hapag-Lloyd's own reefer depot in Rotterdam in the Nethelrands with more than 12,000 installations since the start of the rollout, followed by depots Belgian Container Maintenance in Antwerp (4,700 installations) and Tercon Terminal de Contenedores in Guayaquil, Ecuador (4,300 installations).

The Hamburg-based shipping firm said it already uses data from its 100,000 reefers to monitor its fleet for any events that may harm the cargo, such as incorrect temperature setpoints or technical alerts.

By August 2023, Hapag-Lloyd aims to have tracking devices installed in 90% of its reefer containers, while all the refrigerated boxes of the carrier are expected to be smart by the end of the year.
