CakeBoxx Technologies has introduced the TrusDek Series of door-less intermodal shipping containers. Like other CakeBoxx containers, TrusDek is a two-part container with a one-piece lid that securely locks to the bottom deck, keeping cargo safe and secure during transport and storage.
The TrusDek loads like a flat-rack or open-top container. It is specifically designed for the carriage of heavy, top- and side-loaded machinery and project cargo shipments that require more deck strength and thickness for the mounting of hardware, plumbing or electrical connections below the surface of the deck.
The TrusDek series containers use the new Vertical Locking System comprised of tough, easily-operated twist locks. This makes the lid easy to place and remove while providing a high level of reliability and maintainability. The TrusDek container and lid are handled by all standard container handling equipment and a variety of commercial lifting equipment.
The use of the Vertical Locking System allows the deck to be configured in two basic variations: a flat, open deck for maximum footprint and a recessed deck model that offers more vertical space while providing a secure fit for rolling stock and heavy equipment. As an added capability, the more robust design of the TrusDek’s thicker deck also allows it to be used as a pallet after the lid is removed and can be forklifted or slung while fully loaded.
All TrusDek models are configured with the Perimeter Tie-down System (PTS), providing customer-defined lashing points and an option of either steel or plywood flooring. The thickness of the TrusDek deck allows the floor to be customized with countersunk, threaded attachment points for a variety of anchor fittings or through-bolts.
CakeBoxx’s TrusDek series containers are available in 20’, 40’ and 45’ lengths, half-height, hi-cube and as both standard dry cargo or insulated (FreshBoxx) versions. All CakeBoxx TrusDek containers come preconfigured with the Globe Tracker integrated container tracking system.
