   ZIM said it is expanding its ZIMonitor fleet of containers and adding advanced Star Cool containers manufactured by MCI.
   The MCI Star Cool containers have the refrigeration units integrated directly into the container boxes.

   ZIM said it is expanding its ZIMonitor fleet of containers and adding advanced Star Cool containers manufactured by MCI.
   The MCI Star Cool containers have the refrigeration units integrated directly into the container boxes. According to ZIM, 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.
   This year ZIM will take delivery of 3,000 new advanced refrigerated containers equipped with its ZIMonitor tracking technology. Five hundred of these units will be Star cool reefer containers manufactured by MCI. The expected delivery is in August and September.
   “We are expanding our fleet of top-of-the-line ZIMonitor containers in order to accommodate our customers’ growing demand for our exclusive ZIMonitor service. These new energy-efficient boxes will also contribute to reduced emissions and lower carbon footprint,” said Dan Bartal, container fleet manager at ZIM Integrated Shipping.

I think LNG is a transitional fuel. It’s not the fuel for the future.  However, it meets all the regulations that’s out there ... vessels need to operate under until 2050. It gets us through until we figure out what that next fuel is.

The Port of Antwerp is called by 90 liner services that also sail to regions outside North Europe, according to data from BlueWater Reporting's Port Dashboard tool.
