Crowley Maritime Corporation’s liner services group has added 537 new refrigerated cargo containers in order to serve produce customers in Central America, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
The additions will expand the fleet by 200 units and will replace another 337 aging units.
“The acquisition of these containers is part of our continued commitment to maintain the best-conditioned equipment for our customers in time for peak demand,” said Steve Collar, senior vice president and general manager, Latin America liner services. “We have a staff of experts that continuously evaluates our fleet and its ability to meet customer needs."
The 40-foot reefer containers were received in Santo Tomas, Guatemala, and will be distributed throughout the rest of Crowley’s regional service lanes, as needed.
