Rhenus Logistics has launched a car transportation solution as an alternative to single-use wooden crating.
The Rhenus ‘cartainer’ enables secure and discreet use at all stages of vehicle transit.
Measuring 605cm (length) by 238cm (width) by 240cm (height), the cartainer can accommodate any passenger vehicle or two-axle, four-tyre single-unit vehicle, regardless of make or model.
The cartainer has been specifically designed to offer a substitute for wooden crates in the global finished vehicle logistics (FVL) industry.
Based in the Rhenus major global FVL hub in London, Heathrow, the cartainer’s recommended use is for round trips or multiple-stop transportation.
Rhenus says it can be utilised to deliver security sensitive prototypes to testing programmes or media events, trade shows, or global product launches.
Spencer Davern, managing director of Rhenus Air & Ocean UK, said: “The Rhenus cartainer has been developed in response to increased demand for discreet transportation of security sensitive vehicles on a global basis.
“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.”
Rhenus says the cartainer can be used multiple times, offering a sustainable solution for full vehicle transport.
Davern said: “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.”
