OCEAN Network Express (ONE) continues to expand its current refrigerated container fleet by adding another 27,500 new units, including 850 units equipped with advanced controlled atmosphere technology.
This new investment comes on the heels of 5000 units added to the ONE fleet in early 2020.
Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the global refrigerated container trade showed strong resilience in 2020 compared to dry cargo and ONE expects this growth to be maintained in 2021.
ONE is currently working towards the application of the latest IoT technology into its fleet of reefer containers, which provides real time visibility of critical information such as the temperature and humidity inside the container, thereby enhancing cargo care during the entire voyage.
Hiroki Tsujii, managing director, marketing and commercial at ONE, said, “ONE now has one of the largest and youngest reefer fleet in the world, equipped with the most advanced technologies designed to handle perishable cargo demand.
“Since inception, ONE has been consistently investing in new reefer containers, which in turn has helped to position ourselves in a strategically important & growing business segment.”
ONE’s reefer technical team is available both onboard and onshore providing round-the-clock assistance and monitoring of its customers’ reefer cargo throughout the voyage.
