Hapag-Lloyd is expanding its container fleet through an order of 3,700 Star Cool Integrated containers from Maersk Container Industry (MCI).
As the fifth-largest container shipping company by fleet capacity, Hapag-Lloyd has made the purchase to be more sustainable, and is the first carrier to widely deploy the environmentally-friendly low Global Warming Potential (GWP) R513A refrigerant blend recently introduced by MCI.
