Dynamar: Baltic Reefers Becomes Top Conventional Reefer Operator

Reefer vessels operator Baltic Reefers took over from Seatrade as the top conventional reefer ship operator with a capacity share of 12.4%.

Baltic Reefers, including its separately operating subsidiary Cool Carriers, is for the first time the biggest player with 24.2 million cubic feet (cft), according to a report issued by Dynamar.

After having been the almost untouched number one during many years, the Seatrade Reefer Pool now comes second with 11.5%, or 22.5 million TEU, ahead of the GreenSea Pool, to which Seatrade also contributes ships.

At the end of 2017, the world’s ten largest conventional reefer ship operators combined commercially deployed 211 vessels, comprising 97.6 million cft of reefer space, equalling 49% of the world conventional reefer ship fleet capacity.

There are six perishables traders serving their own transport needs. Part of the top ten are Africa Express Line (Compagnie Fruitière), Dole Ocean Cargo Express (Dole) and Network Shipping (Del Monte). Next tier operators are Cosiarma (GF Group), De Nadai Shipping (Unifrutti) and Great White Fleet (Chiquita). Combined, these six are responsible for a capacity of 22.7 million cft.
