Foldable Shipping Container Tests

Tags: , ,

The shipping industry may be set to undergo a revolution if a new folding shipping container proves its worth.

The containers were tested out at the end of last year between Hong Kong and Rotterdam, where they were unloaded from the Prince Rupert vessel.

The containers are now being tested out on a route between Venlo, in the Netherlands and Spain.

The shipping containers can be folded flat and stacked, taking up only a quarter of the space of one standard container.

Empty containers on a ship can account for anything up to 50% of its full load of boxes so the potential impact not only in ocean freight but road and rail too, is significant.
