Leading container leasing company SeaCube announced the addition of 5,000 refrigerated containers to its inventory. These additions will serve as added support for growing demand for refrigerated container leasing options for shippers.
Carrier Transicold – part of Carrier Global Container Refrigeration, manufactures the PrimeLINE ONE refrigerated containers jointly with Dong Fang International Container Co., Ltd., which is also part of the COSCO group. Carrier is best known for its offerings in innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
“We continue to specify Carrier Transicold for the majority of our refrigerated containers based primarily on our customers’ preferences,” said Bob Sappio, CEO of 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.”
The 40-foot high-cube container additions are a combination of PrimeLINE and PrimeLINE ONE units. In addition to the 1,000 PrimeLINE ONE units added in 2020, SeaCube confirmed a total 2,950 PrimeLINE ONE refrigerated containers added in the past year alone, representing the highest number of any container leasing company.
Features of these containers delivering energy efficiencies include digital systems such as a digital scroll compressor, rapid pull-down, tight temperature control, high air-flow performance and more.
“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.
