Tank Containers May/June 2016 BULKDISTRIBUTOR 11 Intermobile Amfico’s gateway to India terminates CSS for APC contract I L as Vegas-based Intermobile Container LLC has terminated all service and management contracts associated with CSS Alliance for Intermobile’s proprietary dry bulk container concept. Intermobile cited “non-performance” as the reason for terminating the agreements. A services and management contract between Intermobile and CSS Alliance LLC was entered into on 9 June 2015 under which CSS would manage and oversee the engineering and manufacturing of Intermobile containers (see Bulk Distributor, Nov/Dec 2015). However, according to Intermobile, “CSS Alliance did not perform the functions as detailed in the services and management contract to the satisfaction of the Intermobile Container LLC’s management team. As such, Intermobile Container LLC has exercised their right to terminate the agreement”. Intermobile designed a bulk product container with top-load gravity feed for loading, and integral hoppers and pneumatic outlet for discharge. The design fits in a 20ft ISO frame with corner castings, effectively turning it into an intermodal unit. Intermobile’s website explains that the system reduces supply chain costs by eliminating the need for costly rail or road hoppers, as well as large-scale transloading infrastructure. In October 2015 CSS and its parent group Aperture Health, Inc issued a press release stating CSS projected 500 containers sold by the end of 2015. At that time the company was said to be on the verge of signing three contracts ready for manufacturing as soon as UCC approval and final testing was given on the high cube (HQ) version of the container. According to Intermobile, the container design has a wide range of applications, from energy use – for example, transporting frac sand or fly ash – to agriculture, where it can be used to move fertiliser, flour, soy, corn and grains. cleaning your wörld Gröninger Cleaning Systems B.V.
