Pan Ocean operates 4FOLD Foldable Containers

4FOLD Foldable Container Pan OceanWith great pride Holland Container Innovations announces that Pan Ocean starts using 4FOLD foldable containers. The foldable containers are operated on the stretch between Qingdao, China and Incheon, Korea. Pan Ocean is an important player in Korean shipping and starts operating 4FOLD foldable containers thanks to the efforts of our sales agent Mr. BJ Chun, managing director of Boxjoin

Pan Ocean’s container service focuses on the routes among Korea, Japan and China and is committed to fleet expansion, efficient fleet operation and punctual scheduled operation. 4FOLD foldable containers improve the efficiency and punctuality of operations when it comes to empty repositioning. Four folded containers can be folded and bundled. This bundle can be transported and handled as one, saving costs and time as well during the transportation.

Pan Ocean folds the containers in Incheon, saving three times terminal handling costs per bundle. The same is true when the bundles are handled in the port of Qingdao. In Qingdao the containers are unfolded again, ready for the next roundtrip. The use of 4FOLD foldable containers is a sustainable solution for Pan ocean. This in combination with saving costs makes 4FOLD very beneficial.
