Kar-Tainer to trial with major U.S. Railroad

Posted in News on Aug 28, 2007

Kar-Tainer announced that it has entered into an agreement with a major U.S. Railroad. This agreement entails the trialing of their specialized container shipping cassettes on some specific U.S. routes where shipping containers are being re-positioned. As the Kar-Tainer system is not dedicated to the container it is shipped in, such re-positioning corridors are ideal for the economical use of the Kar-Tainer systems.

The trial is due to get under way before the end of September and could lead to a major break through for the containerized transportation of vehicles in the US.

President and CEO, Richard Cox, said that having a good track record with manufacturers such as Daimler, BMW, VW, to name a few, has added a lot of credibility and made the selling job to these manufacturers that much easier.
