Why didn’t I think of that?

If you ship products across the ocean by cargo ship, you’re going to say to yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that?” when you read this article.
A dutch company called Cargoshell invented a collapsible shipping container. It takes one person only 30 seconds to break it down and it occupies 1/4 of the space of a normal steel container. It’s also much lighter which means if you’re inland you can stack several of these on top of one another and truck them back to the port in a much more fuel efficient manner. Their composite material provides better insulation in hot temperatures, and they are equipped with floatable bags on the side if a ship ever capsizes – they will float instead of sinking your cargo to the bottom of the ocean. If that isn’t enough bells and whistles, they come with GPS.
