SeaCube takes 5,000 Carrier Transicold reefer refrigeration systems

Singapore: SeaCube Containers has added 5,000 new 40-foot high-cube containers refrigerated by Carrier Transicold PrimeLine systems to meet demand for leased refrigerated containers,

SeaCube’s newest acquisitions include 4,000 containers equipped with PrimeLine refrigeration units and 1,000 PrimeLine One refrigerated containers.

“We continue to specify Carrier Transicold for the majority of our refrigerated containers based primarily on our customers’ preferences,” said Bob Sappio, chief executive, SeaCube.

“More often than not, our customers want the Carrier machine, and the workhorse PrimeLINE system remains the standard-bearer, while interest in PrimeLINE ONE continues to grow.”

Whether the traditional PrimeLine unit that bolts to the front of an insulated shipping container or the assembled-on-site design used in the PrimeLine One refrigerated container, all PrimeLine systems have a digital scroll compressor that delivers energy efficiency and a value proposition that includes rapid pull-down, tight temperature control, high air-flow performance and excellent cost of ownership.

Over the past year SeaCube has acquired 2,950 PrimeLine One refrigerated containers, the most of any container leasing company. PrimeLine One refrigerated containers are produced in a streamlined manufacturing process by Carrier Transicold jointly with Dong Fang International Container Company.

“SeaCube has long specified Carrier Transicold container refrigeration units, and we appreciate the opportunity to continue serving its needs with our popular PrimeLine systems, which have been the industry leader in sales for more than a decade,” said Kartik Kumar, vice president and general manager, Carrier Global Container Refrigeration.

A leading container leasing company, with headquarters in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey, and container availability in 192 depots worldwide, SeaCube Containers is keenly focused on the refrigerated segment, serving ocean carriers whose reliance on leased containers continues to grow.

Ready for lease are some of the 5,000 refrigerated containers using Carrier Transicold PrimeLine refrigeration systems that were recently acquired by SeaCube Containers. Shown are PrimeLine One refrigerated containers, which made up a portion of the order
