What is Controlled Atmosphere?

Controlled atmosphere are sophisticated, computer controlled systems that manage the mixture of gases within a container throughout an intermodal journey, thereby reducing decay.

Controlled Atmosphere containers use advanced technology for atmosphere control by regulating carbon dioxide, oxygen and nitrogen levels. The right conditions inside a container help to slow down ripening, preserving perishable produce and vastly improving its shelf life especially during long-distance trips.
