Increased Efficiency with Folding Shipping Containers

Shipping containers are intriguing artifacts of global consumer culture. While they are meant to be reusable, there is i use it cialis professional no prescription such an imbalance of we like it buy viagra no prescription 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 www.shoreacres.net handled without changes to how containers are normally handled, they have the wow it's great levitra sale buy 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 feamal viagra uk move bundles of empty containers, so there are time and energy efficiencies to be gained with the adoption of these containers.

What about the ships
written by MikeB, October 26, 2011
Just pulling these numbers out of the air. Five ships bring 10,000 containers from China to the USA. The 10,000 containers are collapsed and put on one ship back to China. Now what? Do the other four shipsjust sit at port in the USA for ever? Does China build 4 new ships to send the full containers back?

I work in the shipping industry. The idea that containers could be condensed in transit is an interesting one. However, Containers are reused continuously. They belong to the ship line in which they travel. Once unloaded they are returned to daily cialis cost the port of entry.

Assume the ships travel back to china carrying US goods or just go back lighter.

Normally you would send five trucks to the port to bring back five containers to your warehouse. Then you would have to send all five trucks back with empty containers. Using this new method means you only have to send one truck back. Instead of enter site where to find levitra 10 round trips for the truck drivers, you only need to make 6. An efficiency saving of 40% is nothing to be sniffed at!

Hey MikeB - I think you're asking the right questions, it got me thinking... The article mentions the sws-bl.com imbalance of trade, saying that the shipping containers tend to tramadol cod saturday delivery make a one-way trip because shipping empty containers is inefficient - but doesn't say why that is. As an outsider, it doesn't make any sense to me to abandon a valuable container at the destination and go back empty - so which is it, go back empty and light to save fuel and time, or wait at port for a full load, or? The containers seem really cool, but as always the devil's in the details so what's the deal?
