German container shipping company Hapag-Lloyd unveiled a new steel floor container, what it claims to be the future of container shipping. Compared to conventional boxes with wooden floors, this development enables much larger loads into it per running metre, which makes it particularly interesting for heavy goods like machines.
The CMA CGM Group, a worldwide leading shipping group, has decided to support the financial and industrial development of Agricool, specializing in urban agriculture, based on recycled containers, in order to enable it to launch its industrialization phase. Several containers are currently being tested. The Group is now the main supplier of containers and the primary logistics and supply partner of this young company.
The Gothenburg Port Authority released its Sustainability Report for 2017, “Sustainable Port”. The report notes that the labour disputes caused a fall in container volumes and affected the number of direct calls. However, record-breaking figures have been reported for cars, Ro-Ro units and energy products.
