Bananas and Pineapples made ripe for market

Helping your products breathe a bit easier

Bananas and pineapples are both exported primarily from the Latin Americas and Asia. However, their logistics needs differ drastically from each other. Bananas, for example, need to mature in transit and thus need a very specific environment to do so. They need to breathe in a 3% oxygen and 4-5% carbon dioxide environment that’s kept at 13.3 – 13.9oC. Specifics that our wholly-owned Star Cool IntegratedTM refrigerated containers can handle thanks to StarCareTM, a controlled atmosphere container designed to slow down the natural respiration of fruits.

Elevated CO2 helps in controlling the ripening of fruit products by suppressing the release of ethylene. Combined with Remote Container Management, you can be assured that your produce is cared for from the time it leaves the plantation, to its destination anywhere across the globe. This in turn helps to prolong the shelf life of the product. We ensure every aspect of our container environment is checked before loading onto a vessel.

Track your goods at every step

Visibility of the smallest detail matters when you ship bananas and pineapples. Captain Peter with Remote Container Management provides visibility on temperature-humidity, O2 and CO2 levels, not to mention location and status of your precious and delicate cargo.

Innovative cold chain logistics

Refrigerated logistics is a highly demanding business. The pressure to respond to changes increases year after year. Thus, innovation is at the heart of cold chain logistics. It could mean removing a stop from your cold chain journey to improve time to market, focusing on improving variable delivery speeds, or even finding a solution to open a new market for your product.
