Shipping News Feature

US –Container and Pooling Solutions (CAPS) has introduced its newest shipping container service centre based in Lowell, Arkansas. Increased customer demand in a more central region of the country drove the company’s decision to launch its most recent facility as part of an ongoing national service centre network expansion strategy. Established in 1998, the Michigan-based company provides reusable shipping container rental, tracking, cleaning and repair intended to help suppliers and manufacturers cut cost, eliminate waste, and mitigate risk.

CAPS Arkansas service centre is fully equipped with state-of-the-art cleaning and repair equipment, as well as tracking technology which allows rapid adaptation to suit customers changing supply chain requirements. The new facility primarily serves liquid container rental clients and will provide them with increased flexibility, reduced road mileage and quicker response times as a result of its centralised location and its proximity to local customer sites.

For the past four years, CAPS has been named one of Food Logistics’ Top 100 technology solution providers and the company says its range of reusable containers provide an environmentally friendly alternative through its container pooling program and with this new establishment, 900 miles South West of the company's Livonia, Michigan HQ, CAPS hopes to extend its influence into new areas.
