CakeBoxx at Work
hasn't changed much since it was invented in 1955.
Today, with shrinking margins, more expensive cargos and greater concern for security, we thought it was time
for a container design upgrade that directly addresses today's supply chain realities and offers true, problem-solving value to users.
some of the most pressing problems in container shipping today.
CakeBoxx is the most secure intermodal shipping container available because it eliminates the weakest link: the doors. The unique CakeBoxx design prevents access by unauthorized persons because once a CakeBoxx container is sealed, nothing gets in or out — whether the container is onboard ship, in a stack at a terminal or on a railcar or truck. Even an unlocked CakeBoxx cannot be accessed without either a lifting device or by cutting through the container walls. Such activities are easily noticed, keeping contents safe from theft or introduction of clandestine cargo.
CakeBoxx provides the strongest protection for your cargo. Because there are no doors, a CakeBoxx container has stronger columns on all four corners, making it virtually impossible to crush during normal operations or while experiencing sudden twisting motions during heavy seas. The air-tight seal keeps pests, water and other elements out, ensuring your cargo remains safe and dry.
CakeBoxx containers can be loaded and unloaded from all sides, like flatbed trailers. Multiple, full-sized forklift trucks can be used to handle large, awkwardly-shaped items and to simultaneously load and unload full-span pallets. Using full-span pallets can reduce the unloading time to 5-10 minutes with just one forklift. Faster loading and unloading saves money, reduces wear and tear and keeps your cargo moving.
CakeBoxx containers can be filled to the top because there is no need for headroom for forklift operations. This means a 40-foot CakeBoxx has a greater net volume than a 45-foot container.
Easier inspections mean stronger security and speedier transit in terminals. While a CakeBoxx helps keep the bad guys out, anyone who is authorized has easy access. Once the lid is lifted, the contents are completely exposed without needing to move them. No cargo is more than four feet away from an inspector who can verify manifests, scan, sniff, and visually assess the cargo without moving anything. This means physical inspections can be completed in minutes, keeping your CakeBoxx containers moving and easing stress on overcrowded ports.
CakeBoxx is more environmentally friendly. The FreshBoxx and FreezerBoxx help cargo stay fresh without chemicals or mechanical refrigeration equipment – and do so for both lower initial and operating costs. Our space-saving ShortBoxx optimizes the shipment of heavy and lengthy cargos that either cannot use a doored container, or waste precious cargo volume or both. This space optimization reduces the Greenhouse gas per ton-mile for the transit, and adds serious revenue opportunity to the carriers that use them.
