Textainer First Leasing Company to Buy PrimeLINE Reefers - Buys 1,000

9.11.2018

Bermuda based container lessor Textainer has placed a 1,000-unit order for the PrimeLINE ONE refrigerated container by Carrier Transicold and Singamas Container Holdings Limited.

This makes it the first major container leasing company to acquire the innovative new refrigerated container, notes the American Journal of Transportation.

Underscoring the significance of the order, the announcement was made this week, just before Intermodal Europe 2018, the world-leading exhibition and conference for companies associated with the container and intermodal industries, said AJOT.

This refrigerated container, developed through a joint initiative of Carrier Transicold and Singamas, 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.

Said Textainer vice president John Simmons: "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. The PrimeLINE ONE refrigerated container further advances our commitment to equipment built to the highest specifications using the latest technology."

Said Global Container Refrigeration, Carrier Transicold marketing chief Willy Yeo: "The design of the PrimeLINE ONE container and its dedicated assembly facility enable us to optimise lead times for Textainer. At the same time, the containers deliver the same familiar benefits of the PrimeLINE system."
