CMA CGM to Attend Asia Fruit Logistica

CMA CGM to Attend Asia Fruit Logistica
Danny Gill

From September 4th to 6th, 2019, the CMA CGM Group will attend Asia Fruit Logistica in Hong Kong, the region’s top trade show dedicated to the fruit industry and its logistics.

CMA CGM says they will present their expertise in handling and shipping fresh products at this regional event, which attracts every year more than 800 exhibitors and 13,500 visitors from around the world.

As one of the world’s largest carrier of refrigerated containers (reefers), CMA CGM says they have a young and dedicated fleet of 385,000 TEUs. These are put to good use on the carrier’s global and extensive network coverage, which is complemented by strong local expertise.

The Group’s latest technologies in Reefer transportation include CLIMACTIVE, one of the most advanced controlled atmosphere solutions. By quickly reducing the level of oxygen inside the container it is particularly well suited to organic produce and fruits with long transit times.

CLIMACTIVE allows the Group’s customers to increase the attractiveness of their products by maintaining freshness to destination, by regulating the maturation process, by extending their products’ shelf life and by preserving their quality. It also makes it possible to export to more distant locations and thereby to target new markets. Finally, CLIMACTIVE does not need any chemical treatment and thus allows customers to keep their organic label.

CMA CGM has also developed REEFLEX to optimize the transport of liquids via refrigerated containers thanks to an innovative design and technology which guarantee optimal hygiene and food safety conditions. REEFLEX thus allows for the transport of liquid commodities (fruit juice, milk, syrup, or any type of food oil) in a single tank with a capacity of 12,000 to 26,000 liters.

Since 2016, the Group has set its Regional hub in Singapore, where it offers more than 100 services per week thanks to its best-in-class network of Ocean Alliance, North-South and Short-Sea lines, and from where it operates its Fleet Navigation Centre for the APAC region.
