Sea Star Line places order for new refrigerated containers

By: | at 02:51 PM | Liner Shipping  

Sea Star Line, LLC recently placed an order for 100 new 40’ and 50 new 45’ refrigerated containers in year three of a five year equipment replacement plan. The replacement plan aims to reduce the average age of the entire Sea Star Line refrigerated container fleet to less than three years.

“Our customers rely on Sea Star Line for dependable refrigerated equipment and this is why it was so important to reduce the average age of our refrigerated equipment fleet through this five year program.” said Bill Taylor, Vice President, U.S. Sales.

The new refrigerated containers are set to arrive at the Blount Island Terminal in Jacksonville, Florida later this year. The reefers will be fit with Carrier PrimeLine Machinery, the latest technology available for refrigerated equipment. Sea Star line continues in this partnership because Carrier Transicold continues to be at the forefront of the transportation refrigeration industry.

The entire Sea Star Line reefer fleet is equipped with an industry unique StarGuard remote reefer monitoring system which provides continual end to end visibility of the operation of the refrigerated unit while in the Sea Star Line cold chain.
