Kar-Tainer Benefits

Kar-Tainer International provides a solution for the transportation of both CBU (Completely Built Up) vehicles, and SKD (Semi Knocked Down) vehicle bodies, with similar patented technology, and therefore common cassette based systems.

Kar-Tainer is the global leader in the containerised transportation of motor vehicles. Damage ratios that run at the unheard of level of 0.02% are a proven fact. 3, 4, and even 5 cars can be securely packed into a 40ft high cube container - but most importantly the vehicles are not driven into the container, a container can be loaded in 5 minutes with nothing attached to it, no chains for leveraging vehicles, and no personnel inside the container during the loading process.

Compare such damage ratios of RORO, approximately 3-5%, and competitive container packing in excess of this, Kar-Tainer is the safest most secure containerised transportation provider in the market today. It is also the only provider that can accommodate the high volume moves, and therefore has become a very real alternative to the RORO and PCC forms of transportation.
