St Johns, NL, Canada: Oceanex has added 125 new 53-foot marine-rated refrigerated containers to its fleet to handle domestic fresh and frozen goods.

The $8 million upgrade will increase Oceanex’s capacity for the transportation of fresh and frozen goods from central Canada to Newfoundland and Labrador by 400% says Sid Hynes, executive chairman, Oceanex.

The refrigerated containers, designed specifically for the company, are environmentally friendly, designed to operate on electric power at terminals and on-board vessels, which further reduces air emissions and improves our environmental footprint.
