Toll Tasmania has been honoured as winner in the Australian Freight Industry Award’s first Transport and Logistics Waste Award category for its innovative new multimodal Scrap Box container design – providing a sustainable solution to reduce supply chain waste in the scrap metal recycling industry. Toll Tasmania’s Scrap Box was also nominated as finalist in the Best Practice Safety Award category.
The multi-purpose Scrap Box design creates greater sea freight transport capacity for all industries that ship cargo across the Bass Strait. The previous container design was only suitable for scrap metal transportation, but the new design caters to general freight and has eliminated 2,500 empty containers per year for Toll Shipping.
The higher-capacity container design now allows up to 40 per cent more scrap metal freight to be transported, at no extra cost to the customer. A new removable lid incorporated in the design allows containers to be stacked to create further capacity on the ship.
