MSC AINO loads record number of live reefers during one of South Africa’s busiest citrus export seasons ever

The MSC AINO loaded a record number of live reefers during one of South Africa’s busiest citrus export seasons ever. According to MSC operations director captain Ian Rosario, it took port workers a total of seven days to load a record 2,099 containers, containing 63,000 tons of mainly citrus fruit destined for several ports in Europe.

Rosario said the huge global demand and the professional coordination within the local logistics chain had led to the record-breaking load: “This is a record-breaking achievement for MSC SA as no other shipping company has achieved this feat within the South African context, ever, on a single shipment. Globally too, this could perhaps be the largest lifting from a single country on a container vessel.”
