Textainer orders 1,000 PrimeLine refrigerated boxes

Rotterdam, Netherlands: Textainer has placed a 1,000-unit order for the PrimeLine One refrigerated container by Carrier Transicold and Singamas Container Holdings.

It is the first major container leasing company to acquire the new refrigerated container. Underscoring the significance of the order, the announcement was made this week, just before Intermodal Europe 2018, the exhibition and conference for companies associated with the container and intermodal industries.

“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, Textainer.

Carrier Transicold and Singamas jointly developed the PrimeLine One refrigerated container

“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. The 40-foot, high-cube PrimeLine One containers are exclusively assembled at a new Carrier Transicold facility located next to Singamas’ refrigerated container plant in Qingdao, China.

“We’re delighted that Textainer has endorsed the PrimeLine One container for their latest acquisition,” said Willy Yeo, director, marketing, Global Container Refrigeration, Carrier Transicold. “The design of the PrimeLine One container and its dedicated assembly facility enable us to optimize lead times for Textainer. At the same time, the containers deliver the same familiar benefits of the PrimeLine system.”

“Textainer’s order demonstrates its confidence in the PrimeLine One container’s reliability and performance,” said Andy Chan, chief operating officer, Singamas Container Holdings.
