ONE upbeat on reefers expanding fleet with 5,000 containers

Ocean Network Express (ONE) is continuing to expand its reefer fleet adding 5,000 forty foot hi-cube containers.

The 5,000 new reefer containers will include 200 units equipped with advanced Controlled Atmosphere (CA) technology.

ONE remains upbeat about the prospects for the reefer container trade that grew more than 7% globally in 2019. “In 2020 too, despite challenges posed by coronavirus pandemic, the prospect of global refrigerated container trade remains strong specially for protein and fresh fruits segment and ONE expects the growth momentum to be maintained for remaining months of the year.”

Jun Shibata, senior vice president of Strategic Yield Management, commented “As one of the leading refrigerated container carriers in the world, ONE is continuously investing in new reefer containers to meet growing demand in perishable cargo segment around the world. We are committed to provide our customers with reefer containers equipped with the most up to date specifications to ship perishable goods and enable them to expand to new markets around the world.”

The continued expansion of the ONE’s reefer container fleet follows the procurement of 6,000 units last year. The company did not reveal the cost of the new reefer containers.
