A A A 缩小 加大 更大

Leveraging its advantages in wide coverage, large transport capacity, and low cost, Shenzhen Pingyan Multimodal Company Limited (PML) launches an express service for reefer cargo. On April 8, the first train carrying fifteen 40-foot containers of refrigerated juice from Brazil left the Yantian Station and headed for the Ganzhou International Port Station with the "one container to the end" model.

This is the first case of PML in 2023 of transporting refrigerated juice by rail, marking a significant progress of cold chain logistics and laying a solid foundation for much more cold chain import and export to come.

How to keep cool during transportation?

All trains and containers must be clean, non-toxic, free of any odor and contamination, and regularly treated with preventive disinfection. 

In order to ensure the safe departure and fresh delivery of cargo, YANTIAN used two "8+1 mechanical insulation trains". A train is equipped with a power generator and 8 cold chain panels to carry 8 refrigerated containers. The trains are characterised by low refrigeration temperature, flexible temperature adjustment, and long-lasting constant temperature, which can ensure high-quality transportation of various reefer cargo.
