Increased Efficiency with Folding Shipping Containers

Comments Off on Increased Efficiency with Folding Shipping Containers

Shipping containers are intriguing artifacts of global consumer culture. While they are meant to be reusable, there is such an imbalance of trade that frequently they do not return to their country of origin, and shipping empty containers is inefficient for the shipping lines. So, while a small number of the containers end up being re-purposed, many more do not. To address this problem, the Staxxon container can be folded up small enough that five empty containers will fit in the space normally filled by one ordinary container. Because the Staxxon containers are as strong as conventional containers, and since they can be moved and handled without changes to how containers are normally handled, they have the potential to make inroads in the shipping industry . Several stacked containers are no heavier than a full container, so there are no special handling requirements in that regard, and operationally, fewer crane lifts and truck trips would be needed to move bundles of empty containers, so there are time and energy efficiencies to be gained with the adoption of these containers. via: Failure magazine
