 The largest global container firm Maersk Line has launched a new weekly service between Santa Marta and Turbo in Colombia and Northern Europe specifically designed for refrigerated cargo.

 
Danish container shipping giant added this new service from Latin America to Europe and a new call on an existing service in the trade lane in an effort to tap one of the areas where container lines can still gain steadily profitable business: reefer cargo.
 
The new service has a rotation of Turbo and Santa Marta in Colombia, Portsmouth in UK, Antwerp in Belgium, and Hamburg in Germany and began its maiden voyage on January 8, 2016.
 
From pineapples to avocados to bananas, fruit exporters can now take advantage of Maersk Line’s reliability and reefer expertise to access European markets with the knowledge that their products are in the very best hands. 
 
Using StarCare technology refrigerated containers, which are designed especially to carry bananas over longer distances (up to 45 days); Maersk Line is setting new standards within the containerized controlled atmosphere business.
 
The vessels operating on the route have a capacity of 2,500 TEU. Maersk Line is adding 30,000 new state-of-art containers in the reefer family.
 
“We are upgrading our reefer fleet to help our customers deliver on their promises. When we pair our expertise and customer relationships with modern innovation, we can make a real difference in supply chains,” Shereen Zarkani, Global Head of Reefer Management, said.
