At Maersk Line, we’re always looking for ways to improve cargo care on behalf of our customers. As the world’s biggest container shipping company, we play an important role in cold chains all over the world, and our care means your cargo has a safe passage from field to fridge.
Innovation is a key element for us in our quest to ensure that your goods arrive in the exact condition intended. One of our new developments is called Remote Container Management (RCM), which turns the reefer container into a digitally connected device.
RCM lets us monitor the temperature and humidity in the container, enables us to handle alarms remotely, complete faster pre-trip inspections, and much more. Already implemented in 270,000 Maersk Line reefer containers, it’s an innovation that lets us take cargo care to the next level.
By ensuring and monitoring the ideal environment for your refrigerated goods, RCM lets you experience true peace of mind when you ship with Maersk Line.
WHAT IS RCM AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
With RCM, we have developed an e-PTI method that can take that process down to 12 minutes by calculating the condition the reefer is expected to arrive at the inspection point in."

THE INSIDE STORY ON HOW TO KEEP IT COOL
Reefer containers have widely been credited for expanding global trade in fresh foods; their integrated, almost self-sufficient, nature enabling the door-to-door transport of 29 tonnes of goods from anywhere in the world to virtually anywhere else. And by their very nature, they ought to ensure continuous chilling of these goods irrespective of where they are.

With RCM, you benefit from:
Remote alarm-handling of reefers Notifications are sent automatically when an alarm is triggered, so that the shipper or related parties can take immediate action. Faster alarm handling means better cargo care.
Faster pre-trip inspections (PTI)
We are able to determine the condition of the container upon arrival, so it’s only sent for a PTI when needed. In fact, in 2015, we have already eliminated 225,000 PTIs. Faster pre-trip
inspections mean you receive your export containers sooner rather than later.
Peace of mind, knowing we are closely monitoring your container
RCM provides data on the container including its location, power status, temperature, humidity and ventilation settings. This data allows us to act quickly when it comes to exception handling, so that we can maintain and prioritise your perishable goods at any point in time and as needed. This means that we can make optimal decisions on how to keep your products cool and fresh until it arrives at destination.
We have listened to our customers and recognised the need
to upgrade our reefer fleet. Our job is to enable you to deliver
your promises in the exact condition they were intended to.
When we pair our expertise and customer relationships
with modern innovation, we can really make a difference in
your supply chain."
