ZIM orders 500 new MCI reefers

ZIM Integrated Shipping Services has expanded its reefer fleet with an additional 500 Star Cool reefers from Maersk Container Industry (MCI), which are expected to enter ZIM’s operation in June 2020.

The new reefer containers are upgraded with controlled atmosphere (CA) units, which will allow ZIM to grow in new markets for perishable cargo.

“These advanced units are specifically suited for sensitive products, such as blueberries and avocado, and will enable more customers to enjoy the advantages of ZIM’s exclusive ZIMonitor service,” stated Michal Marcus, ZIMonitor product manager.

Asked by Container News, a Maersk spokeswoman said that the price of the equipment cannot be disclosed. However, she admitted that "it’s naturally a significant investment in reefer technology."

This is ZIM's fourth consecutive order from Maersk Container Industry and it showcases the ongoing collaboration and partnership between the two companies. Maersk hopes there will be more orders from ZIM, according to a company's spokesperson, as the Haifa-based carrier is continuously upgrading its reefer fleet.

ZIM trusts MCI and its CA Star Cool system fulfills the demands of the Israeli carrier for reefer container transportation; reliability, proven technology, and is well-known among users in the field.
