1st Containers were contracted to work with Euro Dismantling Services on a very large overseas project. EDS complete various work within the sphere of dismantling, on many occasions they work solely on demolition, but they contacted 1st Containers specifically for assistance with this operation as transportation was also needed.

EDS needed to dismantle a factory in Portugal; the difference between dismantling and demolition is the possibility to reclaim the assets, which in this case was the building itself. This factory building, once dismantled needed to be transported and rebuilt in India.

1st Containers supplied units and the logistics team behind the transportation operation. We converted and supplied 130 open top 40ft standard containers for EDS to use for storing and shipment. These containers were the ideal solution due to the steel beams and sheet metal being too large for a standard enclosed container.
