Carrier Transicold and Singamas Introduce PrimeLINE ONE™ Refrigerated Container

[ March 29, 2018   //   ]

PrimeLINE ONE™, a new refrigerated shipping container developed through a joint initiative of Carrier Transicold and Singamas Container Holdings Ltd., a leading manufacturer of shipping containers, was announced at Intermodal Asia 2018.

The PrimeLINE ONE container provides the benefits of the industry’s best selling container refrigeration system but assembled on-site in a streamlined assembly process. Carrier Transicold is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.

The PrimeLINE ONE refrigerated container provides an alternative to the traditional approach of bolting a complete refrigeration system to the front end of an insulated shipping container. Instead, refrigeration system components are assembled into custom-configured Singamas containers in a new Carrier Transicold factory located
adjacent to Singamas’ new refrigerated container facility in Qingdao, China.

“With its all-in-one design, the PrimeLINE ONE refrigerated container is the result
of a streamlined assembly process, which can provide optimized lead times, based on
the location,” said Willy Yeo, director of marketing, Global Container Refrigeration,
Carrier Transicold. “Ultimately, our objective with this introduction is to provide
customers with expanded options for the best refrigerated container solution according
to their needs and preferences.”

Andy Chan, executive director and chief operating officer, Singamas Container
Holdings Ltd. said, “The PrimeLINE ONE program has been a great opportunity for
Singamas to combine our container design and manufacturing proficiency with Carrier
Transicold’s expertise in container refrigeration system engineering. The resulting
PrimeLINE ONE container aligns our manufacturing processes to produce a different
approach to making a complete refrigerated container.”

Carrier Transicold’s PrimeLINE refrigeration unit has led the industry in sales for
the past 10 years and is part of a continuum of Carrier container refrigeration innovation
that started with the original self-contained front-wall system in 1968. Fifty years later,
Carrier Transicold continues that spirit of innovation with the PrimeLINE ONE
refrigerated container and other products that respond to changing customer needs.
