INTERMODAL MODULE CONCEPT FOR FREIGHT

A concept is presented for a family of sturdy, lightweight, inexpensive, forkliftable freight shipping cartons for the smaller shipments, the less-than-truckload, less-than-containerload shipments making up the majority of air freight. Module suitability to small shippers and many transportation vehicles indicates potential applications and benefits could be far reaching throughout the transportation system. Prototype cartons have been built for demonstration.
