Ocean Network Express Expands its Reefer Container Fleet

ONE Reefer

Ocean Network Express (ONE) is expanding its current refrigerated container (reefer) fleet by adding another 6,500 new units (including 500 units equipped with advanced Controlled Atmosphere (CA) technology) to meet the growing demand for refrigerated cargo around the world. ONE continues to demonstrate its strong commitment to meet the demand for containerized reefer trade, which is expected to continue to grow in 2022.

This latest addition to its reefer fleet also underlines ONE’s commitment to protecting the environment and human health. Rather than using traditional solvent-borne paint, these new units will have waterborne paint applied instead. The use of solvent-borne paint releases volatile organic compounds (VOC), which can pollute the environment and cause smog that impacts air quality and visibility. Waterborne paint will help reduce VOC emissions by 80-90%, yet it retains a similar quality to solvent-borne paint in terms of durability and anti-corrosion capabilities.

ONE is currently working towards applying the latest Internet of Things (IoT) technology into its fleet of reefer containers, which provides real-time visibility of critical information such as the temperature and humidity inside the container, thereby enhancing cargo care during the entire voyage.

Hiroki Tsujii, Managing Director, Marketing & Commercial in Ocean Network Express, commented, “ONE continues to show our commitment to the refrigerated cargo segment with this additional investment in new reefer containers. We maintain one of the largest and youngest reefer fleets in the world, equipped with the most advanced technologies designed to handle perishable cargo demand. As a socially responsible company and leader in the industry, we are also doing our part for the environment by using waterborne paint, which reduces VOC emissions.”

ONE’s Global Reefer Business Planning team, based at ONE’s HQ in Singapore, develops ONE’s global reefer marketing and business strategy through the close monitoring of market demand and close collaboration with ONE’s regional reefer teams located around the world. In addition, ONE’s Reefer technical team is available both onboard and onshore, providing round the clock assistance monitoring the precious reefer cargo of ONE’s customers throughout the voyage.
