The Rotterdam firm K-tainer has come up with a new sustainable alternative for empty containers, says an article published on K-tainer.
Cause of Initiative
Some twenty million sea containers move across our planet, carrying freight to every corner of the globe. After being unloaded at their destination port, 40% of the containers continue overland, while 20% are returned empty by sea.
The Rotterdam firm K-tainer has come up with a new sustainable alternative to this procedure: one-way containers. This solution helps avoid unnecessary costs and carbon emissions.
The new and used containers offered by K-tainer Trading and K-tainer Leasing are attractively priced. “But not if we have to send them back empty. In that event, the container loses its cost advantage the moment it leaves port. And that’s leaving aside the environmental aspects,” says K-Tainer director Walter Ferreira.
Eco-friendly and commercially beneficial
The Rotterdam-based firm has come up with an arrangement that reduces carbon emissions and completely ‘refunds’ these savings to the user transporting the container.
