Hamburg Sud and AMA successfully completed a pilot program in AFAM+ container

Mr. Yoram Hoffman, director general of AMA, said that the new system can increase transportation distance and bring Israeli fresh produce such as Avocadoes to far away markets
 
Associated Maritime Agencies A.M.A, a leading Israeli shipping agency who represents Hamburg Sud in Israel, has recently completed a pilot in the use of maritime containers equipped with Automated Fresh Air Management system, AFAM+ .
 
The Thermo King Container Refrigeration unit equipped with Automated Fresh Air Exchange Management is designed for simple operation with the flexibility to handle a variety of perishable commodities.
 
The AFAM+ uses a small motor to set the fresh air exchange of a container thru the MP3000 controller. AFAM+ adds a gas analyzer to the unit to vary the air exchange based on CO2 and O2 levels.
 
With AFAM+, a door setpoint can be entered into the controller and the door can be delayed to open after the product is down to setpoint temperature. When the gas analyzer is added, the unit will monitor CO2 and O2 levels and constantly open and close the door in response to product respiration.
 
Mr. Yoram Hoffman, director general of AMA, said that the correct application of AFAM+ system can equate to faster pull down, decreased dehydration, increased shelf life, and improved product quality. Hoffman added that the new system can increase transportation distance and bring Israeli fresh produce such as Avocadoes to far away markets.
