With immediate effect, all Hamburg Süd customers can use the new Remote Container Management (RCM) technology for their reefer container shipments. RCM monitors parameters such as temperature, relative humidity, and the concentrations of O₂ and CO₂ within the reefer container in real time.

The added value of using RCM is that it enables customers to use this data to monitor their supply chain better, to make it much more efficient and reliable, and to thereby leverage great potential for cost savings. As a special feature the data of the cargo probes for Cold Treatment cargo are available online.

The whole reefer container fleet of Hamburg Süd and Maersk has been equipped with the required  technology. Recent months have been spent carrying out test shipments and developing the digital customer interface. The result is an intuitive, very user-friendly online application that can be accessed via PC, tablet or smartphone, and that conveniently displays all important parameters of the refrigerated container.

With 380,000 reefer containers, Hamburg Süd and Maersk offer the largest reefer fleet in the industry. This ensures availability of RCM technology worldwide for customers.
