At CMA CGM, we are committed in providing excellence at every step of the journey. We know that certain highly sensitive commodities such as fresh fruits and vegetables, require special attention due to their biological specificities, and maturation time. That’s why we are introducing CLIMACTIVE: the latest and most advanced solution to maintain product freshness to destination by faster reducing the level of oxygen inside the container equipped with DAIKIN Active CA. This is a new step forward in our reefer offer enabling us to meet your expectations.​

With CLIMACTIVE, we can control the refrigerated container to prevent the maturation process of your fruits or vegetables and deliver higher quality at destination.

Specialized Products and Value Added Services

CMA CGM has a unique expertise highly appreciated by our customers. They are often producers, and are extremely attentive to the quality of their products that required months of work, follow-up and ripening. They rely on our expertise to preserve the quality of their products. We truly create added value in their supply chain.


Continuous monitoring

CMA CGM’s Reefer experts monitor the containers at every stage of the journey to ensure they are functioning correctly:

  • On entering and leaving the container yard
  • When being loaded on to a train or truck
  • When parked in the port terminal
  • During the voyage on board ship

Throughout the journey, CMA CGM staff regularly monitors the Reefer containers using an electronic microprocessor and data-loggers, which record all parameters even when the Reefer is unplugged.

The data-logger gives us information on:

  • Supply air temperature
  • Return air temperature
  • Ambient temperature
  • Cargo temperature (optional)
  • Humidity level

Other actions which could impact on the quality of the merchandise are also monitored and recorded:

  • Tuning operations
  • Modifying the parameters
  • Interventions
  • Breakdowns


A large majority of the units in the CMA CGM Reefer fleet are equipped with modems, providing constant communication with the ship’s bridge. In case of problem, an alarm signal immediately alerts the technicians ensuring a quick action.

Very Sensitive cargo

Some products require special care because of their impact on the environment, human or animal health. This segment of the market is vast, and ranges from pharmaceutical products to frozen fish.

Our expertise with these products has led to special processes to ensure safety, correct handling and special care:

  • To the equipment before it is released to our customers to make sure it fits to the cargo requirements
  • To the entire transportation chain according to the customers’ requirements to guarantee the quality of the goods
