Welcome to Zbox Blue Logistics project website


Zbox Blue Logistics is the acronym for the “Foldable Shipping Containers for Sustainable Blue Growth” project

Navlandis aims to transform the global container industry.

In order to change the standard rules of intermodal transportation, Navlandis needs to demonstrate the Zbox benefits across a wide validation plan. This is the main objective of the ZboxBlueLogistics project, covering both:

i) on-route performance to quantify savings, and

ii) PAYS (Pay As You Save) business model to be showcased in order to secure the initial market pull we already have generated in the industry.

Shipping lines need an initial Zbox demonstration, then the massive market potential will translate into exponential Zbox deployment. 

In order to fulfill the main objective of the project, the following objectives have been defined:

  1. To validate the savings achieved by Zbox and to enable a large operational validation, by manufacturing and deploying over 100 Zbox units.
  2. To establish a manufacturing plan.
  3. To attain company growth and pave the way for a larger round of investment that will enable a large market upscale and replication campaign.
