Breakbulk container launched

CakeBoxx Technologies and ATS International have launched a hybrid shipping container designed to carry breakbulk and oversize cargoes, dubbed the Breakbulk Box.

The bespoke container has recently completed a successful test shipment from Jaxport, Florida to Puerto Rico.

According to Jaxport, the Breakbulk Box provides shippers with an option to load breakbulk and oversize cargoes directly onto a container bed, as the lid and walls lift off in a single top piece.

Cargo is secured in place using special lashing hooks inside the container bed. The top is replaced by a stacker or crane, which then allows the unit to be secured and handled just like a standard shipping container.

ATS says that the 53 ft container, which carries the seal of approval for ocean use by the IMO's International Convention for Safe Containers (CSC), is designed to move seamlessly between all transport modes.

The protoype container is currently being marketed by ATS, with plans to order at least 100 units in the coming year, stated Jaxport.
