Webinar: Foldable Container - Solution to global imbalance in shipping

KNVTS Afdeling Amsterdam

Wednesday March 17th, 2021, 19:30hs to 20:30hs 

This lecture will be given in English.

Speaker: Hans Broekhuis, CEO 4FoldContainers

About the lecture:
The world trade has a significant imbalance in the volume of containers shipped from especially East- Asia to the rest of the world and vice versa. As a result the global empty container transport at sea amounts to 20%. On land it is even 40%. So we’re shipping a lot of air around the world. 

To attack this inefficiency Dutch start-up 4FOLD Containers developed the first fully ISO certified foldable container, reducing the space of an empty container to a quarter of the size, resulting in up to 37% reduction in CO2 emissions and more cost efficient transport over the world. 

In this webinar CEO Hans Broekhuis will zoom into the solution 4FOLD Containers offers and the current challenges they face to conquer the world.

About the presenter:
Hans Broekhuis joined 4FOLD Containers as CEO at the start of 2019 with an extensive background in marketing and strategic business development in the fast-paced Telecom industry. He had been involved with the company as a shareholder as of 2010. Holland Container Innovations, that started in 2008 is a spin-off from the Technical University of Delft.
