CakeBoxx Technologies has introduced its new TrusDek series of doorless intermodal shipping containers, designed for the carriage of project cargo shipments.

The TrusDek is a two-part container that loads like a flatrack or open top container, with a one-piece lid that securely locks to the bottom deck, keeping cargo secure during transport and storage.

The container is specifically designed for the carriage of heavy, top- and side-loaded machinery and project cargo shipments that require more deck strength and thickness for the mounting of hardware, plumbing or electrical connections below the surface of the deck, explained CakeBoxx.

The TrusDek series uses CakeBoxx's new vertical locking system, which is comprised of tough, easily-operated twist locks that the company says make the lid easy to place and remove, while providing a high level of reliability and maintainability.

The locking system also allows the deck to be configured in two basic variations: a flat, open deck for maximum footprint and a recessed deck model that offers more vertical space, while providing a secure fit for rolling stock and heavy equipment.

As with all CakeBoxx models, the TrusDek container and lid can be used with standard container handling equipment and a wide variety of commercial lifting equipment.

CakeBoxx's TrusDek series containers are available in 20 ft, 40 ft and 45 ft lengths, half-height, hi-cube and as both standard dry cargo or insulated versions.

"The TrusDek series was developed in response to the needs of the top and side loaded project cargo market," said CakeBoxx ceo Daine Eisold. "We offer the strength and loading ease of the flatrack or open top design combined with the security of a completely enclosed and secure container.

"TrusDek will solve of a lot of problems in the project cargo and special applications world where cargo safety and operational efficiency are top priorities."
