On 3-4 April, Holland Container Innovations was one of over 100 companies funded by the European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot that participated in a matchmaking event at the InQbet Accelerator in Brussels with large corporates and open innovation experts. Hosted by P&G and The Growcery, participants also included representatives from Cargill, Port of Antwerp, bpost, Nokia, Umicore, ING and Solvay and twenty other big corporations. HCI explained to these shippers how they could reduce their emissions on transportation by operating 4FOLD Foldable Containers.
Drewry Shipping Consultants expects an increase in transit time between Asia and Europe. The amount of Ultra Large Container Vessels (UCLVs) arriving over the next few years is an unwanted legacy from a period when carriers were over-confident in the market and possibly misguided in the benefits those ships offer. And while it will be challenging to meet the added capacity, the maritime consultant says there are reasons to believe that the task will not be as onerous as it initially appears.
De 4FOLD Foldable Container is opgenomen als energiebesparend bedrijfsmiddel op de Energielijst 2019. De Energie-investeringsaftrek (EIA) is een fiscale regeling waarmee de overheid Nederlandse bedrijven ondersteunt bij investeringen in energiebesparende bedrijfsmiddelen. Wanneer men gebruik maakt van EIA heeft de ondernemer dubbel voordeel: de energiekosten gaan omlaag én er wordt minder belasting betaald. De EIA houdt in dat men 45% van de investeringskosten van de fiscale winst mag aftrekken. Hierdoor hoeft er minder vennootschapsbelasting betaald te worden.
In 2018 HCI was focused on the successful development and roll out of the new service model. The model is focused on shippers, where HCI and forwarders together offer transport using 4FOLD Foldable Containers to save costs and emissions for shippers.
4 years after the first demonstrations of the 4FOLD Foldable Container, HCI has attended the Intermodal Europe in Rotterdam again. HCI looks back at a very successful event with a lot of fruitful meetings. HCI noticed that despite the recent IMO regulations to reduce emissions, no other relevant sustainable solutions were presented at the Intermodal fair. Therefore it was important to update the market about the progress HCI is making with 4FOLD Foldable Containers as a Service.

Looking forward to meeting you there!
Holland Container Innovations will present 4FOLD Foldable Containers as a Service to Electrolux managers and network with fellow SMEs. HCI is one of the 14 companies selected to attend this exclusive event funded by the European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot. HCI will explain how Electrolux can meet their CO2 targets related to transport by using foldable containers and saving money at the same time!
Holland Container Innovations was invited by Procter and Gamble to be part of the P&G and Partners event. During this event, HCI had the opportunity to pitch their business proposal to relevant stakeholders from Procter & Gamble, AB InBev, DEME, GSK, Nokia, Puratos and Solvay. This was a great opportunity to present how 4FOLD as a Service will bring down emissions regarding P&G’s transportation.
