ATHENS, Ga. — Carrier Transicold announced that it has launched the Carrier Refrigerant Management Excellence (CareMAX™) program, a comprehensive refrigerant management program for its authorized service centers designed to help raise the standard of service and quality in refrigerant-handling operations for the container shipping industry.

Carrier Transicold said CareMAX establishes protocols to help its more than 400 container service centers better manage refrigerants and refrigerant supplies. By using authorized service centers recognized by the CareMAX program, the company said equipment owners and operators can be confident their assets will be serviced by experts committed to maintaining the highest levels of refrigerant quality.

CareMAX protocols cover all post-production stages of refrigerant handling, from procurement and testing, to storage and decanting, including maintenance of refrigerant-handling tools and how to train service technicians who handle refrigerants.

Participating service centers will need to successfully pass an audit conducted by Carrier Transicold’s global service organization before the service center will be authorized to use and display the CareMAX logo.
