Spectainer, Nexxiot partner on container real-time visibility solutions

Spectainer, a shipping solutions provider, has partnered with shipping technology firm Nexxiot to enable real-time visibility of their entire fleet of COLLAPSECON containers.

COLLAPSECON are intermodal boxes that cleverly fold up using a fully-automated station so that each empty unit can be collapsed independently and then combined to form a single shipping container.

This approach is going to significantly reduce the cost and environmental impact of shipping by improving vessel slot efficiency, port lifting, vessel wharfing time, yard storage space, trucking, and handling.

According to Nexxiot, millions of containers are carried across the world and at least a third are empty while in transit, wasting space, time, and resources due to trade imbalances in the market.

As Nexxiot says, the partnership’s efforts are enhanced through active collaborations with clients, who prioritise sustainability, cost reduction, and cargo safety as core anchors in their product life cycle, and depend on shipping technologies, such as smart containers to reach their goals.

"Shippers expect their cargo to be safe throughout its journey and that’s why we have partnered with Nexxiot," said Nicholas Press, CEO of Spectainer.

He added, "Cargo owners and carriers need cargo visibility, in real-time, from anywhere in the world to drive efficiency and process automation. Nexxiot’s technology mitigates risk to people, infrastructure, and cargo while reducing emissions and waste. This makes them a strong partner to equip the COLLAPSECON, providing clients with the visibility they need on a global scale."
