The article features the Cakeboxx doorless intermodal cargo container designed by Garry Whyte. Just like a flatbed container, Cakeboxx containers can be loaded and unloaded from all sides, reducing the amount of time needed to load, unload and transpack cargo. Once the container is closed, nothing will get out, or in, whether the container is onboard a ship, in a stack of containers at the port, or in a railcar or truck, thereby reducing significant terrorism risk.
