Crowley Maritime Corporation’s liner services group has added 400 new refrigerated cargo containers to its equipment fleet to better serve perishables customers in Central America and the Caribbean. All these units are 40-foot-high cubes, built to Crowley’s structural and security standards.
The 40-ft reefer containers are being delivered in Santo Tomas, Guatemala, directly from the manufacturing facility to accommodate Central America’s heavy northbound reefer season, which is underway and will continue through May 2016.
These reefers will also be deployed as needed throughout the remainder of Crowley’s service lanes. The new containers are equipped with Carrier Transicold’s PrimeLINE refrigeration units, incorporating several changes to help boost efficiency and reliability.
Crowley operates more than 52,000 pieces of owned and leased intermodal equipment. This includes more than 22,015 chassis, 21,297 dry containers, and more than 3,916 refrigerated containers, all strategically located throughout the United States, Central America, and the Caribbean.
Based in Jacksonville FL, Crowley Holdings Inc, a holding company of Crowley Maritime Corporation, is a privately held family and employee-owned company. Additional information about Crowley, its subsidiaries, and business units may be found at www.crowley.com.
