PTI Advent 2018: Collapsible Containers


Port Technology has released an exclusive paper from Nicolas Press, CEC Systems, who explores the compelling case for collapsible containers in the shipping industry.

Tracing back the history of the intermodal shipping container to its origins, Press underlines how transforming times and changing needs call for new solutions, one of which could be collapsible containers.

Returning to the present day, where “over 90% of goods” are transported by intermodal containers, Press reveals that many are still left empty, taking up space and creating inefficiencies.

As well as explaining why empty containers could cause a problem for ports and terminals, the author previews the potential applications of collapsible containers, including a product from CEC Systems that could make a difference.

With leading shipping companies, such as Maersk, formulating empty container solutions, such as the “return-to-terminal” policy, Press also outlines why these logistical methods do not always solve the problem.

As the technological development of many ports and terminals around the world becomes more rapid, it is important to remember that going digital is not the only way to optimize, solutions such as collapsible containers also providing savings.

Optimizing the operations of ports and terminals will be a key subject at the Container Terminal Automation Conference (CTAC) 2019, which takes place May 7-8 in London, UK. For more information, please visit our dedicated event website.
