For a controlled atmosphere we provide a wide range of technologies such as ExtraFresh and Everfresh. The interior atmosphere is controlled to delay respiration and to extend shelf life for fruits and vegetables. Spoiling and moulds is minimized. We have the best solution ready for nearly each and every cargo.
Avocados: allows up to 35 days transit time
Bananas: allows up to 45 days transit time
Blueberries: allows up to 28 days transit time
Mango: allows up to 28 days transit time
Other commodities: upon request
A technology designed to control and preserve the desired transport atmosphere for fruitsand vegetables. Hapag-Lloyd ExtraFresh takes advantage of the natural fruit respiration process to slow down the ripening and thus maintain the cargo's quality and extend the product's shelf life.
In addition to the technology available with ExtraFresh, the ExtraFresh Plus technology allows injection of nitrogen and carbon dioxide before sea voyage. ExtraFresh Plus technology is primarily used for low respiring cargo, that cannot produce the optimal atmosphere by natural respiration alone.
Liventus & Maxtend
Liventus and Maxtend fitted containers describe a special supplement for Reefer containers. They create a tailor-made atmosphere via pre-trip gas injections. An additional controller is monitoring & recording the atmospheric composition inside the Reefer. Such “Controlled Atmosphere” containers are ideal for low respiring cargo.
Purfresh’ Controlled Atmosphere technology will increase CO2, decrease O2, and add Ozone inside the refrigerated container environment.
Air Exchange Management is an automated ventilation system designed to regulate the oxygen and carbon dioxide level inside the container via the fresh air vents. This technology takes advantage of natural respiration processes of the fruit or vegetables and therefore does not require gas injections. Hapag-Lloyd operates one of the largest reefer fleets capable of Automated Ventilation.
