One of the world’s top-20 carriers and the biggest cargo shipping company in Israel, Zim Integrated Shipping Services Ltd (ZIM), recently announced they would expand their ZIMonitor containers fleet in 2019 along with adding the MCI manufactured “Star Cool” containers.

The Star Cool container manufactured by Maersk Container Industry (MCI) has the refrigeration unit integrated directly into the container box, this advanced design results in several advantages, including lower weight and increased capacity, reduced heat leakage and improved overall energy efficiency, all of these contribute to a significantly lower carbon footprint.

ZIM will receive 3000 new units of advanced refrigerated containers in 2019, which will also be fitted with ZIM’s ZIMonitor tracking technology. 500 of the 3000 will be the MCI Star Cool containers with an expected delivery date between August and September 2019.

ZIM Integrated Shipping Container Fleet Manager, Dan Bartal said, “We are expanding our fleet of top-of-the-line ZIMonitor containers 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.”

Maersk Container Industry Global Head of Sales and Marketing, Anders Holm added, “We are extremely pleased to add ZIM to the customer portfolio. The Star Cool integrated reefers will take ZIM’s reefer fleet to the next level. Star Cool is supported by a global service network and provides high efficiency and reliability.”
