Tiger Cool Express Acquires 35 Temp-Controlled Containers

Tiger Cool Express LLC, a provider of temperature-controlled intermodal transportation of produce and other food products, has acquired 35 additional domestic containers.

The deal increases the size of Tiger Cool’s domestic container fleet to 234. The new boxes are manufactured by Hyundai, with Carrier X4-7300 refrigeration units and iBright telematics. The insulated containers are built to hold temperatures to minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit. They are equipped with remote accessibility and can be switched on or off, or have their temperatures adjusted from any location, remotely. Four internal sensors, including a coring thermometer, measure temperatures and monitor the environment inside the container. Additional sensors monitor opening and closing of the doors. Cellular sensors track location speed and direction, and are equipped with geo-fencing capability to alert the company and customer if the equipment is out of route. Vertical and horizontal impacts, as well as fuel quality, are also measured by devices within the containers. Tiger Cool said it expects to announce additional fleet expansions in 2015.
