Maersk Container Industry launches energy meter to power cold chain transparency in Star Cool containers.
Star Cool™ refrigerated containers are now fitted with a new embedded digital feature that offers visibility and precise knowledge of actual energy consumption.
To provide transparency into actual energy consumption throughout the transportation window, over land and sea, Maersk Container Industry (MCI) is introducing an energy meter feature integrated into all new Star Cool™ refrigerated containers. Maersk Line, the world’s largest container shipping company and part of Maersk’s Transport & Logistics division, became the first of MCI’s customers to take delivery of the new Star Cool reefers at the start of the year.
Widely recognised for its proven high energy efficiency, this latest development enables Star Cool reefers to log energy consumption in real time. The data can be monitored either via a modem or manually, at any time during the voyage, from when the Star Cool reefer is first turned on until it reaches its final destination.
