Across all three tradelanes, the average age of equipment is only 6 years. In recent years, we have launched a comprehensive equipment fleet reinvestment program, including a major new equipment deployment: 

  • 250 new flat racks and 250 new refrigerated shipping containers in Alaska
  • 400 new state-of-the-art refrigerated shipping containers in Hawaii

We diligently work to ensure the right equipment is always ready and available to fulfill our customers’ shipping needs across all the ports we service. Our proactive approach to equipment maintenance, repair and reinvestment means you can count on Horizon Lines to supply reliable equipment to protect your cargo, wherever it’s going.
