Crowley Adds 300 New Refrigerated Containers to its Fleet

15.11.2019

Crowley Logistics has added 300 new refrigerated (reefer) cargo containers to its industry-leading equipment fleet just in time for the peak perishables shipping season.

The additional units, which are all 40-foot-long, high cubes built to Crowleys exacting standards, further demonstrates the company’s focus on offering customers the most reliable and efficient equipment in the market.

These units have wireless asset monitoring technology, which will provide continuous monitoring as the reefers transit from origin to destination, both at sea and over land, to ensure the cold chain is maintained the entire time goods are moving.

The acquisition of these containers is part of our continued commitment to maintain the best conditioned equipment for our customers and in the right quantities to meet their needs during peak season and throughout the rest of the year, said Steve Collar, senior vice president and general manager, Crowley Logistics.

The reefer containers will be received in Santo Tomas, Guatemala, to accommodate Central America’s heavy northbound reefer season, which runs through May 2020. The new containers are equipped with Carriers high efficiency PrimeLINE refrigeration units, incorporating several changes to further boost efficiency and reliability.

Since 2014, Crowley has invested over $150 million in new cargo equipment for its fleet. Today, the company operates more than 51,500 pieces of owned and leased intermodal equipment. The equipment’s diverse sizes and strategic locations throughout the U.S, Central America and the Caribbean provide customers a variety of solutions.
