Crowley Maritime Corporation's liner services group
has begun to take delivery of 929 new 40-ft. refrigerated (reefer) high-cube containers, 1,453 new 45-ft. containers, 1,453 chassis and 347 generator sets. The equipment, all of which is arriving in Jacksonville, FL, during the next four months, is being deployed in the company's Latin America, Caribbean
and Puerto Rico liner
services as soon as it is received to meet increased customer demand.
The new containers will complement an order received in 2006 for 5,942 new 45-ft. (102-in. wide) dry containers, 40- and 45-ft. chassis, 40-ft. high cube refrigerated containers and gensets. Like the containers delivered in 2006, the new boxes were built to Crowley's high security specifications.
