A damaged shipping container is automatically blocked for further transport. The sea container poses a potential hazard to anyone involved during handling and onward transportation. From then on, the owner of the consignment is responsible for repairing and storing the damaged container.

If the repair cannot be carried out quickly enough, your cargo will not arrive at its destination on time. You will also be charged extra for storage of the damaged sea container at the port. A blocked sea container will cost you money. Literally. We understand that at DEUFOL!

Our solution

Speed is of the essence. That is why we promptly send a mobile team to the location of the shipping container. We measure the damage and draw up a plan of action with a price quotation. We consult with you. And after approval, we start work immediately!

Thanks to our fully equipped mobile teams, we can repair (almost) all damage to shipping containers on site. We can:

  • Replace the damaged parts of the damaged shipping container.
  • Design, produce and fit additional profiles or reinforcements to the damaged shipping container.
  • Reweld the damaged shipping container.
  • Repaint or apply a water repellent coating to the damaged container.

DEUFOL obtains all necessary work permits to work on the quay in the port. (e.g. welding and grinding work)

DEUFOL relieves you of all worries and solves the problem!

2 Maritime shipping container repairs recently carried out by Deufol:

Project 1: repair of a damaged 20-ft shipping container in the port of Antwerp.

Damaged maritime shipping container repair

Due to high internal pressure, the container walls were bulging and the sea container threatened to burst open. The 20 feet shipping container was blocked for further transport. Welding on the damaged shipping container was prohibited due to fire hazard.

The Deufol solution and method

  • Design and production of a steel frame to strengthen the walls of the shipping container. A frame that could be placed around the shipping container without welding or grinding. This was prohibited.
  • On-site assembly of the steel frame around the shipping container to prevent it from bursting open.
