Another New Shipping Container Design from Innovative Box Maker

40 Foot Unit to be Unveiled at Intermodal Exhibition CHINA – WORLDWIDE – At this year’s Intermodal Asia exhibition, taking place in Shanghai, China, between March 20th and 22nd, US and UK based CakeBoxx Technologies[1] will unveil the company’s new CakeBoxx 40′ shipping container. We have previously illustrated[2] CakeBoxx’s unique container design for shippers needing 360 degree side and overhead access for loading and unloading, the fact that the units act as a flat rack, which is then completely protected by lowering the body of the box onto the base, means improved security whilst still allowing full securing of the cargo to the rack.

Boasting a higher maximum payload than its predecessor while increasing the internal dimensions, these latest improvements are the result of a reduced tare weight made possible by using ‘lightening’ holes in the bottom side rails of the deck and using fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) flooring. The combination of these technical changes also gives the new 40′ CakeBoxx container a distinctive and unique appearance that the company says accentuates the ‘two-piece’ design.

The 2018 CakeBoxx 40′ follows a series of significant product updates from CakeBoxx Technologies in 2016 and 2017 with the release of both the 45′ and 53′ ‘BreakBulkBoxx’ containers. These two products pioneered CakeBoxx Technologies’ lightening hole design element. The new 40′ CakeBoxx also uses a system of recessed cargo tie-down points to increase usable floor space.

Commenting on the security and utility of the new container’s design, former Commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and former National Chief of the United States Border Patrol David Aguilar said: “60% of all marine cargo moves in containers each year, and billions of dollars are lost each year due to theft, vandalism, cargo handling damage and related delays. Amazingly, only minimal changes to address these vulnerabilities have been made to the shipping container.

The unique CakeBoxx design is a transformative change to the shipping industry and offers a quantum improvement in security as a result of their two-piece, ‘no doors’ design. “Not only do CakeBoxx containers guarantee much needed security improvements, they also streamline handling procedures by minimising break down and reassembly requirements and increasing terminal velocity by reducing the load and discharge times.” The company has plans for other new products later this year, bringing the CakeBoxx ‘two-piece’ container advantages to several new markets including the cold chain and energy sectors.

CakeBoxx Technologies CEO Daine Eisold noted they are in the final stages of design for these products and he expects they will make their appearance in the market by the end of this year.
