The container industry is evolving, and we believe in the power of collective transformation. To maximise the container’s potential, we need to create added value through visibility, efficiency, and sustainability. This includes integrating advanced technologies, fostering collaboration within the industry, and transforming the container into a generator of added value.
The Smart Container advanced features, once integrated in the maritime supply chain, can reshape Ports and Customs operations, improving them substantially, to efficiently handle the growth of international trade transported by containers.
AELER, a company focused on sustainable solutions in the supply chain industry, prioritises ecological impact in its decision-making processes. One of its main innovations, the Unit One container, aligns with the European Green Deal goals and contributes to greenhouse gas emissions reduction. It achieves this through modal shift facilitation, drag reduction, increased payload capacity, reduction of single-use materials, waste reduction, and end-of-life considerations. The Unit One container provides accurate traceability, which is crucial for verifying sustainability claims, reducing overproduction, and addressing issues like food waste. The structural innovation of the container reduces reliance on flexibags, minimises waste, and decreases emissions throughout its lifecycle.
