Since containerization is globalized, intermodal container (sometimes also called dry cargo containers or dry freight containers) has become a vital part of the supply-chain infrastructure. More and more containers are using in worldwide transportation, especially shipping and flight. Traditional containers are usually in metal materials, however recently, a new name–composite material–is making a figure in the production of logistic containers.

 

TOPOLO composite sandwich panel is an ideal choice for intermodal containers. The major advantages are as follow:

Lightweight

Continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic panels are much lighter than metal ones. In making intermodal containers, this is the biggest advantage for freight loading.

Recyclable

Thermoplastic materials are 100% recyclable. They contribute more to the environment than metal materials.

Modularized

Standard and united size, volume and material make the containers easy to load and unload, fitting all kinds of carriers. Thus a lot of time and cost can be saved.

High strength

Being lightweight, the CFRT intermodal containers are no less strong in impact resistance, even stronger than metal containers. This is because the continuous fiber contained in the material significantly reinforces the strength of the products.

In addition to intermodal shipping, TOPOLO thermoplastic containers are also customizable for non-shipping applications, such as:

Small package containers (using TOPOLO 8mm to 10mm honeycomb panels or 3mm composite sheets)

Fragile product containers (for antiques and luxury car storage)

Reefer trailers (The special thermo-property can help to keep the temperature in the containers.)

Containers on cargo bikes for last-mile delivery

General purpose containers
