Bringing MCC Reefers to Life 01 February 2018

The production of new reefers that bear MCC’s new trademark is an exciting milestone. These new containers are testament to MCC’s commitment to building partnerships through quality equipment and superior service.

 

Brand new MCC reefers were produced last year, with the production concluded in Maersk Container Industry in Qingdao China (MCIQ) last November 2017. Once out of the factory, these containers enter the equipment circulation, ready to be dispatched to our customers.

But before any of these containers are released to a customer, each of unit has gone through a strict and meticulous process of manufacturing and safety checks to ensure its highest quality.

Daniel Perez, Maersk Line’s Global Technical Manager for Equipment, takes us through the fascinating process of bringing a reefer container to life.

He shared that his team has taken care every single detail to secure the reliable reefer machinery, hygienic design and cargo protection of reefers that come out of production.

“MCIQ manufactures throughout the day and night shifts. The factory is one of the most experienced reefer production facilities, as it produced more than 25,000 reefer containers for Maersk Line and MCC this year,” Daniel explains.

We live safety. Our containers do too.

At the final stages of production, MCIQ performs rigorous batch testing and prototypes before the new reefers come out. The entire process is supervised by Maersk’s appointed classification society and inspection company tasked to ensure ISO standards are met thoroughly during the production.

All MCC containers are manufactured in accordance to the International Convention for Safe Containers, which upholds international safety regulations in cargo transportation.

Once the containers are out of production, these will go through Approved Continued Evaluation Program (ACEP) throughout its entire lifespan of 15 years. This is process assesses the reefer’s quality at regular intervals to ensure that it is up to standard.

World’s Smartest Reefers

Like all Maersk reefer containers, these new reefer units are equipped with a Remote Container Device which uses a cellular signal to transmit information about reefer’s status to our offices, terminals and to our customers. This information can be accessed on the Remote Container Management platform, where customers can easily monitor their reefer’s journey in detail. Click here to learn more about Remote Container Management.
