ZIM commissioned advanced new ZIMonitor refrigerated containers
ZIM is expanding its ZIMonitor containers fleet in 2019 and adding advanced “Star Cool” containers manufactured by MCI, the company said in its release.
The new MCI “Star Cool” containers have the refrigeration unit integrated directly into the container box. This design has several advantages, including lower weight and increased capacity, reduced heat leakage and improved overall energy efficiency, resulting in a significantly reduced carbon footprint.
During 2019, ZIM will take delivery of 3000 new units of advanced refrigerated containers, equipped with ZIM’s ZIMonitor tracking technology. 500 of these units are “Star Cool” reefer containers, manufactured by MCI. The expected delivery is in August-September 2019.
