Seaboard Marine recently acquired 340 new refrigerated containers to meet the rising demands of our perishable import and export customers. The new containers arrived at Puerto Moin in Costa Rica and were quickly integrated within our fleet to support the growing needs of refrigerated cargo moving throughout the Americas.

Executive Vice President Bruce Brecheisen said, “Seaboard Marine is committed to meeting the needs of our refrigerated import and export customers. Our investment in state-of-the-art containers will phase out older boxes to ensure our customers receive reliable and efficient equipment. We strategically order and position our new refrigerated containers throughout Latin America to round out our premier ocean transportation services. In addition to these 340, we have over 1,000 new reefer boxes with controlled atmosphere capability that will be arriving later this summer.”

Our refrigerated containers can transport almost any type of goods that require cold storage. The new units are all 40-foot-long and built to exacting standards to meet our customer’s needs and are ideal for maintaining the cold chain integrity of various commodities such as produce, frozen meats and seafood, pharmaceuticals, and flowers.
