Marine services and logistics supply chain company Crowley Logistics has added 300 refrigerated (reefer) cargo containers to its fleet, the company said Tuesday.
The 40-foot long cubes will be received in Santo Tomas, Guatemala, to accommodate Central America's heavy northbound reefer season, which runs through May 2020, the company also said. The new units feature wireless asset monitoring technology to ensure the cold chain is maintained throughout transit.
"The acquisition of these containers is part of our continued commitment to maintain the best conditioned equipment for our customers and in the right quantities to meet their needs during peak season and throughout the rest of the year," according to Steve Collar, Crowley Logistics' senior vice president and general manager. "We have a staff of experts that continuously evaluates our fleet and its ability to meet customer needs. If we see there is opportunity for enhancements, we make investments to ensure we have the right equipment available at the right time."
Crowley Logistics is a subsidiary of Jacksonville, Fla.-based Crowley Holdings Inc., a holding company of the 127-year-old Crowley Maritime Corp.
