BoxTech container database now over 10m

London, UK: Mediterranean Shipping Company has joined other carriers registering its container fleet on the BIC’s BoxTech Global Container Database.

As a result, the technical details of more than 10 million containers, or approximately 40% of the global container fleet, are now available to database users, which include shippers, forwarders, terminals and software providers.

The MSC fleet upload occurs as BoxTech, the non-profit global container database operated by the Bureau International des Containers (BIC) approaches its two-year anniversary.

Launched in July 2016, there are now more than 1,500 BoxTech users that obtain technical container details, such as tare weight, size and type, as well as using more recently added functions such as verifying ownership status and posting recovery alerts.
