CMA CGM announced the launch of the most advanced solution for the transportation of liquids by controlled temperature: REEFLEX on the occasion of the 2018 edition of FRUIT LOGISTICA in Berlin (Germany).

The company stated, “Developed in partnership with Teconja, a German expert in juices, and Liqua, an expert in packaging solutions for the transportation of liquids, REEFLEX greatly enhances the transportation of liquids thanks to its design and unique technology, which guarantees a healthy and safe way of transportation.”

REEFLEX allows for the transportation of liquids (juices, milk, compotes, syrup and all kind of oils) in a single bag with a capacity ranging from 12,000 to 24,000 litres. Available on Reefer containers of 40 feet, REEFLEX is installed in just 3 minutes. Thanks to its external pumping system, the bag is filled and emptied in 35 minutes thanks to its adapted design.

REEFLEX represents an ideal alternative to break bulk and it will allow exporters and importers to carry their goods by containers, thus improving the conditions of transportation and delivery.

Moreover, REEFLEX helps maintain the product’s nutritional and chemical properties thanks to a sterile environment and controlled temperatures precisely maintained between -35°C and +20°C. Each single-use bag is entirely recyclable, is produced based on the needs of customers and meets the highest level of hygienic and safety constraints. Its system allows to fill up and empty the bag without someone being present in the container during these operations.

On the occasion of the launch of REEFLEX, Eric Legros, Deputy Vice President Reefer, declared, “CMA CGM owns one of the largest and most modern Reefer fleet in the world. A pioneer with Aquaviva, a unique solution for the transportation of lobsters and shellfish, the Group continues to innovate with the introduction of REEFLEX, a state-of-the-art technology for an optimal transportation of liquids.”
