CMA CGM shipping group is upgrading its Reefer range

On the occasion of the 2018 edition of the Asia Fruit Logistica fair, CMA CGM, a leading worldwide shipping group, announced the launching of Climactive, an advanced technology for the transportation of highly sensitive fruits and vegetables by active controlled atmosphere. By upgrading its Reefer range the group wants to better meet customers’ needs and acquire new markets.

„Climactive” is based on Daikin Active CA technology, the latest and most advanced solution to maintain sensitive commodities’ freshness to their destination, by faster reducing the level of oxygen inside the container. It was created for highly sensitive commodities that require special attention due to their biological specificities and maturation time. This technology allows preventing the maturation process, extend the shelf life and preserve the products’ quality attributes.

Climactive allows to reach the optimal level of O2 and CO2 much faster. A nitrogen pump creates a real barrier against oxygen infiltration, protecting the cargo from excessive ripening. Temperature, humidity and balance between gases are also very precisely regulated, allowing an optimal preservation and protection of highly-sensitive commodities.

The CMA CGM Group is the 2nd largest refrigerated container carrier in the world. Thanks to its fleet of 385,000 TEUs of Reefer containers and 288,000 Reefer plugs, CMA CGM offers transport solutions for all sensitive cargo requiring refrigerated transportation in order to exceed customers’ expectations. With an organisation dedicated to Reefers and a network of experts in over 160 countries, CMA CGM is a global Reefer partner with local expertise in refrigerated transport.
