  • Taiwan’s TS Lines is significantly expanding its capacity for refrigerated cargo.
  • Carrier Transicold PrimeLINE refrigeration units are playing key role expansion of TS Lines’ reefer capacity.
  • One thousand refrigerated containers are being added to the TS Lines fleet.

As part of an expansion of its refrigerated capacity serving the intra-Asia trade, Taiwan’s TS Lines Ltd. has purchased 1,000 Carrier Transicold PrimeLINE container refrigeration units. The shipping line’s refrigerated capacity will increase by about 24 percent, enabling TS Lines to accommodate growth of perishable and other refrigerated trade in lanes it serves.

High cooling capacity and rapid pulldown are particularly important to TS Lines for quickly cooling sensitive cargoes such as the tropical fruit durian, which produces large amounts of respiration heat and is often loaded hot.

Equipped with a digital scroll compressor, the PrimeLINE unit is ideally suited to meet these demands, with a reputation for energy efficiency and a value proposition that includes tight temperature control, high air-flow performance and excellent cost of ownership.

The PrimeLINE units are being installed on a combination of 40-foot high-cube containers and 20-foot containers. TS Lines uses Carrier Transicold refrigeration units exclusively and specifies the PrimeLINE model based on a number of factors, including its customers’ preference, Carrier Transicold sales and service support, and the unit’s proven reliability and overall performance.

A top-20 shipping line, TS Lines was established in 2001 and has offered refrigerated service for more than 12 years. TS Lines is committed to renewing its fleet with updated equipment to maintain a high level of customer service.

Carrier Transicold is marking the 50th anniversary of its front-wall container refrigeration unit design in 2018.
