Snow, freezing weather, and high winds did not deter professionals from attending Intermodal Europe 2010. Held from November 30 to December 2 at the Amsterdam RAI in The Netherlands, the container transport and maritime logistics industry event drew more than 4,730 attendees from 80 nations. This marks Intermodal Europe’s highest number of total visitors in more than 10 years.
“This year’s Intermodal provided us with a great opportunity to introduce our new Food Storage Bins for ISO containers and to also speak to industry professionals about the rules and regulations for the transport of hazardous goods,” said Henrik Klinge, Klinge Corporation president.
Alongside products launches of other suppliers, Klinge Corp launched its collapsible Food Storage Bins (FSBs). These bins collapse to a height of 12 inches (309 mm), allowing nearly three of the collapsed FSBs on a return trip to be transported in the space of one. Made of polypropylene, the FSBs feature foldable flaps on each side allowing for ergonomic loading/unloading and easy access to food. The FSBs have also passed a multitude of MIL-STD tests.
“The Food Storage Bins were specifically designed for insulated ISO containers so no cargo space is wasted. Six of the FSBs fit inside a 10-foot insulated container and 18 fit inside a 20-ft insulated container,” said Klinge.
Henrik Klinge was asked to conduct a presentation at Intermodal. Speaking about the storage and transport of hazardous materials, he summarized Dangerous Goods as defined by the International Maritime Organization, discussed how changes to the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) regulations affects the industry, and introduced Klinge Corp’s solutions to the new requirements.
Compliant with regulations for the transport of IMDG classes 4.1 (self-reacting substances) and 5.2 (organic peroxides), Klinge Corp’s Dual or Redundant Refrigeration Units feature two complete and separate refrigeration systems, each with its own thermostat and control circuit. Redundant Refrigeration Units are also available with a back-up integral generator set capable of powering the refrigeration units in case of loss of external power supply or during transport on a truck.
