collapsible container

two Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) professors have designed a collapsible container that could change the dynamics of the trade forever.The new container, designed by Anoop Chawla and Sudipto Mukherjee from the mechanical engineering department of IIT, Delhi, can be collapsed or erected in less than four minutes. A special platform, or base station, folds the containers hydraulically to one quarter its size.The process needs just one or two unskilled or semi-skilled persons.World container traffic scaled 141 million twenty-foot equivalent units, o.r TEUs, in 2007
