Samskip chooses bamboo for container floors

Samskip Multimodal Container Logistics has chosen bamboo flooring for 500 new containers – rather than the tradition white wood.

It chose bamboo for the 45ft containers because it is plantation grown and lasts longer than wooden flooring.

Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth – some of the species grow 100 centimetres a day.

Besides being environmentally friendly bamboo fiber is also much stronger, more flexible and lasts much longer than wooden floors.
