Shipping container manufacturer CakeBoxx Technologies recently announced the introduction of their new ThermoBoxx refrigerated containers. This is the latest intermodal two-piece shipping container to come out of the McLean, Virginia based company in the last several months and follows on the heels of their 12’ wide hi-cube refrigerated two-piece CakeBoxx containers.
CakeBoxx Technologies designed these models as a solution for the movement of temperature-sensitive cargos that would normally be difficult to load and unload through conventional reefer container doors due to their size, shape or weight. The side and top loading capability provides a strong value proposition for speed of loading, product safety, security and loss prevention.
The ThermoBoxx line of refrigerated containers incorporates the company’s two-piece deck and lid design and will initially be available in both 20’ and 40’ hi-cube versions. As with all CakeBoxx models, fully customized versions of the ThermoBoxx are expected to follow shortly, including both 45’ and 53’ hi-cube models. The new ThermoBoxx containers combine the industry standard cargo loading doors on the rear end with the removable CakeBoxx lid. This combination of loading options will enable shippers to load cargos from the top or side by removing the CakeBoxx lid or through the rear doors as with conventional reefer containers.
Unlike standard reefer containers, the CakeBoxx style two-piece reefer container can also be delivered with ‘no doors’ for customers with special transportation or storage security needs. The CakeBoxx two-piece doorless reefer container is available with the US Government’s SAFETY Act designation as Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology. All CakeBoxx two-piece reefer containers are fully ISO compliant and CSC certified for global intermodal use.
“Our new ThermoBoxx was specifically developed to support the transportation and security needs of the expanding array of temperature-sensitive products in the defense, aeronautics, composites and electronics markets. As more and more of these types of products are being produced for global markets, shippers want to take advantage of container-based shipping. It is increasingly clear that conventional rear loading refrigerated containers are not a great solution, and in many cases are marginally adequate – so we built an alternative. In some respects, we plan to fill the need for the cold chain that open-top containers offer for dry cargo,” said Daine Eisold, CEO of CakeBoxx Technologies.
