+ - Are Folding Containers the Future of Shipping? ->

Submitted by swellconvivialguy
swellconvivialguy (1719580) writes "Earlier this year Maersk ordered 20 super-size container ships—each to have “16 percent larger capacity than today’s largest container vessel, Emma Maersk.” But instead of embracing the bigger/more-is-better mentality, Staxxon, a NJ-based startup, has engineered a folding steel container (it folds like a toddler’s playpen), which is designed to make shipping more efficient by “reducing the number of container ship movements.” No one has yet succeeded in the marketplace with a collapsible container, but Staxxon has made a point of learning from the mistakes of others."
