Maersk Line continues its lead in being the responsible business partner for all of our customers. We are committed to ensuring that we serve our customers with products and services that not only provide the very best customer satisfaction, while at the same time having the lowest environmental impact.
Maersk Line is on average 5-15% more energy efficient (Clean Cargo Working Group data) than our competitors, therefore shipping with Maersk Line has a lower carbon footprint than shipping with our competitors. This applies to reefer containers as well as all other container types shipped with Maersk Line. For our reefer containers, we have made investments towards innovation of the control systems our reefer containers use, to reduce the energy consumed in order to keep the cargo at the desired temperature (QUEST software).
Further to this, our reefer boxes are insulated using Cyclopentane foam technology. This material is used in all new build reefer containers; contrary alternatives which may be used by others in the industry. Cyclopentane, when used as a blowing agent for foam insulation, has minimal global warming potential (GWP) and no ozone depletion potential (ODP).
