Transporting avocados requires the highest level of care. We use specialist refrigerated or ‘reefer’ containers that employ Controlled Atmosphere (CA) technology to regulate CO2, O2 and ethylene production to preserve the fruit’s taste, freshness, texture and aroma. Our flexible approach to technology enables customers to choose between the StarCool® CA, XtendFRESH®, Liventus®, Maxtend® and Purfresh® atmosphere control systems.
Dubbed a superfood for its nutrition and health qualities, consumers all over the world can't get enough of the avocado. To preserve the product's relatively short shelf-life requires a shipping partner with a high level of specialist knowledge and the right technology. MSC assists avocado producers from countries, including Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Israel, to safely transport their precious cargo to retailers in Europe, Asia and the US – facilitating market access and extending shelf life.
With one of the world’s largest, greenest and most advanced reefer container fleets, we understand the importance of preserving refrigerated cargo from the moment we receive it until it reaches the end customer. Our proven experience in transporting perishable goods is built on consistent investment in technology and infrastructure. This includes the use of CA units to slow down the ripening process and extend the shelf-life of avocados, enabling them to be transported for long distances without damaging their appearance, flavour or quality.
