ZIM Integrated Shipping Services has announced an order of 500 Star Cool Integrated Reefers from Maersk Container Industry (MCI).

ZIM offers advanced transport of fruit, meat, medicines, and other frozen or refrigerated cargo and has developed technologies to ensure that reefer container transportation is as secure, reliable, and efficient as possible. ZIM’s ZIMonitor system combines the latest technology with a comprehensive 24/7 response team. 

Dan Bartal, Container Fleet Manager, ZIM Integrated Shipping said: We are expanding our fleet of ZIMonitor containers to accommodate our customers’ growing demand for our exclusive ZIMonitor service, and we are sure MCI’s highly advanced and energy-efficient Star Cool Integrated reefers will be a great addition to our equipment fleet,.”

Star Cool technology has a strong track record with around 300,000 units in operation across more than 40 container lines, leasing companies and multinational fruit companies around the globe. Customers opt for the technology not only for its proven performance and reliability but to also help meet their increasing sustainability objectives.

“Our Star Cool technology offers operators like ZIM the lowest total cost of ownership by combining reliability with lower operating costs, such as the most energy efficient reefer in the industry,” said Anders Holm, Global Head of Sales and Marketing MCI. “We are pleased to see our product offering matching ZIM’s environmental ambitions so well.”
