Helping to support increased demand for refrigerated cargo shipping, South Korea’s Sinokor Merchant Marine Company has announced that it is acquiring 1,700 new containers refrigerated by Carrier Transicold PrimeLine units.
The new refrigerated containers, a combination of 1,000 40ft, high-cube and 700 20ft boxes, will expand Sinokor’s refrigerated container inventory serving routes in the Asia-Pacific region, including China, Vietnam, Thailand and Korea.
“We have been very satisfied with the performance of the PrimeLine unit, which is an integral part of our existing fleet,” said Hun Heo, manager, container management team, Sinokor. “Besides its leadership in energy efficiency, the PrimeLine unit’s reliability reduces maintenance requirements resulting in lower lifecycle cost, and the unit has proven itself to be the preferred choice among our customers who ship sensitive perishable cargo, such as durian.”
“At Carrier Transicold, we are pleased to support Sinokor’s expansion as it grows to support perishable and frozen commerce throughout the region,” said Leow Eng Meng, director, container sales, Asia-Pacific, Carrier Transicold.
