The company, run by lastmile blogger and entrepreneur Tom Stitt has developed a vertical folding container solution that addresses the cost and inefficiencies involved in moving empty intermodal containers.
Staxxon’s primary objective is to develop a vertical folding and nesting method for empty containers that removes the most expensive commodity container cargo – air – and replaces air with folded and nested empty containers that meet existing CSC structural and weathertight standards for dry containers when unfolded.
Staxxon looks to provide a retrofit and new container approach to folding and nesting that adds one-time incremental cost which is recovered by cost savings (fewer lift/picks/moves) and improved container utilization.
Their top sustainability objective is to reduce the number of container ship movements at ports related to empty containers by focusing on the larger challenge of reducing net sea-going vessel movements involving empty containers. They accomplish this with an innovative container folding and stacking method.
In his new book "Leadership Is Language, The Hidden Power of What You Say and What You Don't", former submarine commander Captain L David Marquet (USN Ret) dives deep into one of the most thoroughly investigated marine disasters, the sinking of the El Faro, and surfaces with new ideas on leadership and language.
