Pacific International Lines (PIL) has announced that it has made its first delivery of fresh avocados to Singapore from Australia using its latest 40” high cube Controlled Atmosphere (CA) refrigerated (reefer) containers. The batch of avocadoes was produced in Fremantle, Western Australia, a key premium fruits growing region.
PIL recently acquired newbuild CA reefer containers to support the increasingly sophisticated needs of its customers across its network in China, Asia, Africa, Middle East, Latin America and Oceania.
Lim Chee Wei, General Manager, PIL Logistics Division: “We are very pleased that the avocados arrived in Singapore fresh and in optimum condition in our CA reefer containers. This is our first such shipment into Singapore, and we see this as a significant step for PIL as a Singapore home grown container shipping line.”
