Kiwifruit exporter prefers Black

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

NZ Kiwifruit exporter – Zespri – recently took delivery of one of our new all black leasing containers

Zespri are in the process of completing a new $43 million dollar head office, and have a short term storage requirement while they are assessing new office furniture for their new facility

SEA Containers were only too happy to oblige. Our new all black leasing containers are perfect as they have additional ceiling height over a standard container, an easy opening front door, and a lock box fitted as standard for security – they are also a fine looking shipping container, and very easy on the eye as a result!

Bikes in Schools Program - Shipping Container Storage

Sunday, May 17, 2015

SEA Containers NZ was approached by the teachers at Tamaki Primary to help protect the new bikes they were acquiring as part of the Bikes in Schools program ( 

The team at SEA Containers had to consider a number of factors ensuring this container met a number of requirements

  1. Security was paramount - lockable roller doors and the shipping container doors were welded together to minimise entry into the container
  2. 100% wind and water tight shipping container was required to protect the bikes whilst stored
  3. The kids needed to be able to easily access the bikes, so roller doors provided the perfect solution
  4. To protect the bikes from damage whilst being stored, bike racks were installed inside the shipping container to prevent the bikes from falling over
  5. Shelving and hooks on the walls were installed to keep the inside of the container as clear as possible so the kids aren't tripping over hazards
  6. Container was to be painted to suit the school colours, so it blended in with the surroundings

SEA Containers NZ are proud to have supplied this shipping container to help the kids of Tamaki Primary enjoy their new bike track and to learn bike safety. 

Engineering workshop shipping container

Tuesday, April 14, 2015
Sea Containers NZ was tasked to design, build and commission an engineering workshop inside a 40’ shipping container to support a super yacht travelling the high seas. The container was designed to work off the grid, and included luxuries such as refrigeration; mammoth amounts of dry storage for sails, tools, ropes and various arrays of sailing equipment; twin-voltage to work in any country, and most importantly for the crew – a separate bar fridge, WIFI capable and air-conditioning.

One challenge was to design and engineer a gantry inside the container that was able to slide out 2.5 metres to collect the tender boat and store the tender whilst being shipped around the world. The gantry itself was engineered to lift 1 tonne of dead weight.

It is needless to say, the team in the SEA Containers workshop are proud of what was achieved. A lot of research and development went into this container, and the quality of the finish has only boosted our confidence in meeting the requirements of any client no matter the complexity of the design.   

The comments from the yachts chief engineer was particularly welcomed:

"From initial contact right through to design, construction (and change of orders!), and delivery of our container, SEA Containers NZ did an excellent job of supplying us with an amazing product, finished to an extremely high standard and most importantly on time and on budget! We are extremely happy with the service we received and the level of quality in their product, I would use them again for future projects without hesitation." - Daz Neale, Chief Engineer
