CMA CGM has announced the launch of CLIMACTIVE — its advanced technology for the active controlled atmosphere of refrigerated containers.
The French ocean carrier has designed CLIMACTIVE to maintain the freshness of sensitive commodities such as fruit and vegetables from origin to destination.
Other types of cargo targeted by this new technology, which works by achieving the optimal container level of O2 and CO2 at a faster rate, includes products with a high benefit or long transit times.
According to a CMA CGM’s statement, CLIMACTIVE will allow businesses to optimize their competitive attractiveness by maintaining products’ freshness and preventing the maturation process.
