Win a 1:1,250-Scale Model of the “Hamburg Express”.

So, how much do you know about shipping? Here, you’ll find a puzzle to solve every month. Answer correctly, and you could win a 1:1,250-scale model of the “Hamburg Express.”

Many of Hapag-Lloyds modern reefer containers are equipped with the “ExtraFresh” technology. It controls the interior atmosphere of a reefer container to slow down the respiration. That way, the shelf life of fruits and vegetables can be extended. Avocados and bananas are examples of fruits that are transported with “ExtraFresh”.

For fruits and vegetables that are even more sensitive and low respiring, Hapag-Lloyd developed “ExtraFresh Plus”. Its goal is to slow the ripening and to balance the gas mixture inside the container. Fruits like blueberries are handled with “ExtraFresh Plus”.

Now it's your turn to guess: How many days of transit time can blueberries and mangoes cope with these technologies?

a.) up to 18 days
b.) up to 22 days
c.) up to 28 days
