Helping to support increased demand for refrigerated cargo shipping, South Korea’s Sinokor Merchant Marine Company Ltd. is acquiring 1,700 new containers refrigerated by Carrier Transicold PrimeLINE® units. Carrier Transicold is a part of Carrier Global Corporation, a global provider of sustainable building and cold chain solutions.
The new refrigerated containers, a combination of 1,000 40-foot, high-cube and 700 20-foot 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. “The unit’s reliability reduces maintenance requirements resulting in lower lifecycle cost, and the unit is the preferred choice among our customers who ship sensitive perishable cargo, such as durian.”
The PrimeLINE refrigeration unit features a digital scroll compressor that delivers low energy consumption and a value proposition that includes rapid temperature pull-down, tight temperature control and high air-flow performance.
“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.
