Press Release: Demonstrations of 4FOLD foldable container in the Port of Hamburg

4FOLD_HamburgDELFT, 20 September 2016 — Holland Container Innovations is presenting its 4FOLD foldable container during live demonstrations at the HCCR depot in Hamburg. 4FOLD is revolutionising the container industry. Folding the container saves time and money and contributes to reducing CO2 throughout the entire logistics process.

The 4FOLD demonstrations will take place on Tuesday, 27 September, Wednesday, 28 September and Thursday, 13 October and are open to everyone following registration.

4FOLD is revolutionising the container industry because 4FOLD significantly reduces the problem of empty transport. 4FOLD is, in principle, a standard container that can easily be integrated into everyday logistics. The empty container is folded to a quarter of its normal height. Four folded containers can be stacked and bundled and have exactly the same dimensions as a single standard container. This allows four folded containers to be handled and transported as if they were a single standard container, which delivers significant cost savings and reduces CO2 emissions.

Various shipping companies are already using 4FOLD. They confirm that operational savings are being made: ‘We’ve noted that the demand for innovation is greater than ever right now, while the sector is seeing difficult times. 4FOLD delivers efficiency by, among other things, reducing handling and storage costs by up to 75%. Using a personal approach, we would be happy to show how we can make a difference to every player in the market’, says Simon Bosschieter, CEO Holland Container Innovations.

The demonstrations have been supported by the allocation of a subsidy of €2.5 million from the SME instrument of the Horizon 2020 European Innovation Programme.
