SINGAPORE: Forty-six years after pioneering the first front-wall refrigeration unit, Carrier Transicold presented its millionth unit during a ceremony at its Singapore manufacturing facility. 

The milestone unit, a PrimeLine unit with XtendFresh atmosphere control system, was presented to CMA CGM, the world’s third-largest container shipping company and one of Carrier’s longest-standing customers.

“The 1 millionth container unit is an accomplishment not only for our company and the thousands of employees around the world who have helped make it possible, but for the marine shipping industry,” said David Appel, president, Carrier Transicold & Refrigeration Systems.

“Today, 52% of world seaborne trade is delivered efficiently and economically by container vessel, and 65% of refrigerated products are transported in containers, the majority of which are efficiently and reliably temperature-controlled by Carrier Transicold systems,” said Chiou Fun Sin, president, Global Container Refrigeration, Carrier Transicold. “On any given day, the value of cargo delivered by Carrier Transicold units alone is valued at $6bn.”
