Thermo King Shows How to Extend Shipping Distance while Maintaining Quality During Transport of Fresh Fruit and Vegetables at FRUIT LOGISTICA

26th January 2015

Visit Thermo King at the stand A-01 in Hall 7.1a of the FRUIT LOGISTICA show in Berlin to learn about innovations that help deliver fruit and vegetables from their origin to the most distant locations with preserved quality, taste and appearance.


People around the globe expect fresh goods at stores and restaurants to be of the same quality and appearance as at the moment of harvest. To meet this demand, global exporters want the most advanced options available so they can deliver perishable products from their origin to the most distant locations with preserved quality, taste and nutritional value. Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control solutions for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, meets the needs of shippers and customers with two new innovative solutions:

  • Magnum Plus Optima controlled atmosphere, with active oxygen removal that delays ripening, ageing and decay of fresh fruit and vegetables to preserve their quality, taste and weight during long distance transportation. By prolonging the post-harvest life of fresh produce, growers can extend shipping distances and reach unexplored markets. Moreover, it also permits growers to harvest produce closer to its natural maturity time and peak flavor.
  • Passive refrigeration technology concept, with no need for plugging and unplugging, like in case of a conventional reefer, ensures the cargo is transported at the right temperature and humidity conditions to preserve the quality, taste and weight of fresh harvested produce, regardless of the region, time or operator.


Media are invited to join Thermo King product managers, industry experts and leadership team at the Stand A-01 in Hall 7.1a at the FRUIT LOGISTICA show in Berlin, Germany to learn more about these innovations.
