CMA CGM has launched CLIMACTIVE, a new solution for the transportation of fruit and vegetables using active controlled-atmosphere technology.
According to the shipping line, CLIMACTIVE uses Daikin Active CA technology to maintain temperature-sensitive produce at maximum freshness. The oxygen level inside the container is reduced with a nitrogen pump in order to prevent the maturation process and extend the shelf life of products.
“Following the launch of the REEFLEX innovation, CMA CGM continues upgrading its reefer range to better meet customers’ needs and acquire new markets,” said Eric Legros, vice president of specialized products and value-added services at CMA CGM. “By introducing CLIMACTIVE, an additional technology is now available for the most sensitive commodities in CMA CGM’s controlled-atmosphere offer. CMA CGM testifies again the importance of customer centricity and its ability to remain equipped with the latest innovative technologies.”
CMA CGM is the second-largest reefer carrier and operates a fleet consisting of 385,000 containers.
