CMA CGM unveils CLIMACTIVE for temperature-sensitive shipments
Sep 6, 2018: CMA CGM, a leading worldwide shipping group, launched CLIMACTIVE, the most advanced technology for the transportation of highly sensitive fruits and vegetables by active controlled atmosphere during the 2018 edition of the Asia Fruit Logistica fair.
CLIMACTIVE is the latest and most advanced solution to maintain sensitive commodities’ freshness to destination, by faster reducing the level of oxygen inside the container equipped with DAIKIN Active CA.
CLIMACTIVE is created for highly sensitive commodities that require special attention due to their biological specificities and maturation time. It specifically targets: high added value products, long transit time products and organic products.
This technology allows businesses to optimize their competitive attractiveness by maintaining the products’ freshness up to final destination, preventing the maturation process, extend their shelf life and preserve the products’ quality attributes. It also allows businesses to expand by reaching further destinations and target news markets. CLIMACTIVE finally allows businesses to maintain their products’ organic label.
CLIMACTIVE allows reaching the optimal level of O2 and CO2 much faster. A nitrogen pump creates a real barrier against oxygen infiltration, protecting the cargo from excessive ripening. Temperature, humidity and balance between gases are also very precisely regulated, allowing an optimal preservation and protection of highly-sensitive commodities.
