AJOT | May 24, 2019 | Ports & Terminals

The hyper-smart Container 42 will be leaving the port of Rotterdam today for the first leg of a two-year data-collecting mission around the world.

The unit has also been fitted with solar panels, which can be used to determine how much power a container can generate during a given journey by ship, train or truck. The container will be making its first stop in early June, in Munich, Germany. Here it will be presented to the public during the trade event Transport Logistic 2019 (TLM).
