The new containers are among the most energy efficient in our fleet. Also, Seaboard Marine acquired in the past six months over 4,000 new 20, 40 and 45-foot dry containers for use in the growing Latin America and Caribbean markets.

“Seaboard Marine continuously improves the quantity and quality of our container fleet,” said Bruce Brecheisen, Executive Vice President. “It is our goal to provide high-quality equipment to uphold a high level of service with consistent reliability and customer satisfaction. In the case of our refrigerated container fleet, this ongoing process also ensures our units are surpassing industry leading standards for low energy consumption and lower emissions to reduce our carbon footprint.”

Regarded as an industry leader in supporting sustainable procurement, MCI, one of the world’s premier container manufacturers, built most of these recently received refrigerated containers. The modern construction processes minimize material used while optimizing structural strength, which makes the units more energy efficient and repair-friendly.

“We view these initiatives as opportunities, renewing the age and sophistication of our equipment fleet, while reinvesting in our valued customers. We believe these efforts ultimately contribute to stronger, more reliable service that exceeds the highest standards in the industry,” noted Brecheisen.
