2. estimated 90% of the worlds trade todaymoves in containers.One hundred million container loadscrisscross the worlds oceans each year inover 5,000 container ships. Some 20% of the containers on board are empty 3. Usage during its Life-Span A container can spend on average 56% of its lifespan either idle or being repositioned while empty. This represents a non revenue generating part involving additional costs (such as warehousing and repositioning)that are assumed either by the shipping or the leasing company. Such a cost is part of the leasing rate.Copyright 1998-2009, Dr. Jean-Paul Rodrigue, Dept. of Global Studies & Geography, Hofstra University. 3 For personal or classroom use ONLY 4. Usage during its Life-SpanThe lifespan of a container ranges between 10 to 15years depending on its level of usage and the conditionsit has been exposed to. A well maintained container not exposed to harshconditions can even have a lifespan up to 20 years.Copyright 1998-2009, Dr. Jean-Paul Rodrigue, Dept. of Global Studies & Geography, Hofstra University. 4 For personal or classroom use ONLY 5. INNOVATION, what can it bring?The year 1954.At that time Philip Morris & Co,owners of a brand called Marlboro,was dead last in sales among themajor tobacco companies.Marlboro makeover---its packaging!For a 5 year exclusivity Marlborowas the first brand to be packagedin the handy Flip-Top Box. Marlboros new image paidhuge dividendsThink outside the box !in attracting smokers. 5 6. aluminum and/or 1958care free aluminum / iron / galvanized iron / WIKI: galvanizing for protection of iron is favored because of its low cost, the ease of application, and the extended maintenance-free service that it provides.6 7.

Feasibility Huge DividendsCheck Foldable Containers:a New Perspective on Reducing Container-Repositioning Costs 38on 39.

YESYESYES YES not enfoldedScheme from study by the Technical University of Delft - (link on previous slide) 40 41. 41 42. 1.Other technical option is to enfold from 16 cm higher hinge to also store the two container ends. Lessefficient.2.Preferably, the back end would be entirely flat outside, to allow more volume inside.3.Both end parts, as well as the extremities of the green parts, are possibly without the forklift cut outs.4.Possibly, (some) manipulation or use of the containers do not require the springs.5.The watertight property is not compulsory for all transported goods or commodities.Watertight packing or covering the goods inside might even be possible.6.The plates and the back end are hollow or not. If hollow the container has increased floatation capacity.Possibly they are ecologically foam-filled, also to offer a temperature barrier.7.The side walls could be made of a single corrugated plate.8.Full recycle ability is pursued. Adhering maximal to the Cradle to Cradle philosophy...If one part is damaged, the other parts remain fully recoupable to further serve.9.Longer hinges or extra hinge parts in between the shown hinges if required. All measurements are possibly tobe adapted.10. Most preferably galvanized steel execution, equals longevity. Or, no paint.11. Outside the great money-saving folding property, longevity further compensates initial manufacturing costs.12. Outside visual identification of the Conticke happens through its tags all around the door-end, as wellvertically as horizontally. On the front, the top side, as on its two sides. As there is only one door-end percontainer assembly, the other parts remain neutral as they are interchangeable.13. Patent protection is pursued to acquire exclusivity and to easily control the development, manufacture andexploitation.14. In this age of terrorism, the folding container ensures better security since it cannot be so easily used as ameans of smuggling,15. Strategically, own specific corner fittings and consecutive own equipment clamps is an option.42 eric parein - 2009 43. Thank You for considering:The environment-friendly key to lower IT costs.
