Rhenus Logistics has launched a reusable car transportation container for air cargo as an alternative to wooden crates.

The forwarder said that the “cartainer” would be based at its finished vehicle logistics hub at London Heathrow and can be used for round trips or multistop transportation.

“It can be utilised to deliver security-sensitive prototypes to testing programmes or media events, trade shows, or global product launches,” the forwarder said.

The container measures 605 cm (length) by 238 cm (width) by 240 cm (height) and can accommodate any passenger vehicle or two-axle, four-tyre single-unit vehicle, regardless of make or model.

“The Rhenus cartainer has been developed in response to increased demand for discreet transportation of security sensitive vehicles on a global basis,” said Spencer Davern, managing director, Rhenus Air & Ocean UK.

“With the cartainer, our valued customers will be able to protect the identity of the vehicle during transportation at every stage of its journey on a door-door basis.

“As an alternative to the single-use wooden crates often deployed to airfreight a car securely, the Rhenus cartainer can help businesses achieve their goals of using fewer resources and producing less waste through their business operations.”

Rhenus takes aim at Central Europe growth with latest acquisition
