How do you get more out of an aircraft container? By reducing its size, not its capacity. The smaller the container, the easier it is to bring back or forward on empty. Our inflatable and collapsible containers are designed to maximise volume and minimise dimensions, meaning you pay less for deck space.
Relocating empty containers is either expensive (disassembling) or time consuming (sea freight) or both. The more logical option is to use collapsible containers. You can stack them on lower deck positions for the return journey or stack them in a warehouse. Either way, you save space and keep your transport small.
There’s no way round it. Aircraft containers have to tolerate a lot of rough treatment from users and operators. That’s why we give all our containers a sturdy, rigid design; one that can withstand all that use and abuse. The tougher the container, the longer its useful life. And that’s good economics.
Designing a container to fit a plane’s main or lower deck perfectly is pretty cool. But to reduce the size of perfect-fit container without sacrificing volume requires a lot more skill because each type of container requires a different manufacturing technique. Fortunately, we have the expertise. We are the world's first container manufacturer to have made an inflatable AKE container.
