On the occasion of the 2018 edition of the Asia Fruit Logistica fair, CMA CGM has announced the launch of CLIMACTIVE, the most advanced technology for the transportation of highly sensitive fruits and vegetables by active controlled atmosphere, highlighted a release.
CLIMACTIVE by CMA CGM, the latest reefer technology
CLIMACTIVE is the latest and most advanced solution to maintain sensitive commodities’ freshness to destination, by expeditiously reducing the level of oxygen inside the container equipped with DAIKIN Active CA.
CLIMACTIVE has been 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
* Organic products.
This technology allows businesses to optimise their competitive attractiveness by maintaining the products’ freshness up to final destination, preventing the maturation process, extending their shelf life and preserving the products’ quality attributes. It also allows businesses to expand by reaching further destinations and target new markets. CLIMACTIVE finally allows businesses to maintain their products’ organic label.
It 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 optimal preservation and protection of highly sensitive commodities.
