Leasing company Textainer has placed a 1,000-unit order for the Primeline one refrigerated container from Carrier Transicold and Singamas Container Holdings, making it the first major company of this nature to acquire the refrigerated container.
“As a major supplier of refrigerated containers to shipping lines around the world, we have one of the industry’s youngest and fastest-growing reefer fleets,” said John Simmons, vice-president, refrigerated containers at Textainer. “The Primeline One refrigerated container further advances our commitment to provide our customers with equipment that is built to the highest specifications using the latest technology.”
The Primeline One refrigerated container was developed through a joint initiative of Carrier Transicold and Singamas to provide a solution that takes advantage of Carrier’s industry-best-selling Primeline container refrigeration system, which is assembled on-site into a custom-configured container in a streamlined manufacturing process.
It provides an alternative to the traditional approach of bolting a complete refrigeration system to the front end of an insulated shipping container.
“We’re delighted that Textainer has endorsed the Primeline One container for their latest acquisition,” said Willy Yeo, director, marketing, global container refrigeration at Carrier Transicold. “The design of the Primeline One container and its dedicated assembly facility enable us to optimise lead times for Textainer. At the same time, the containers deliver the same familiar benefits of the Primeline system.”
