News, views, ideas and info of interest to our shipping container customers

Advantage Structures, LLC can build a container for virtually any need, and that’s not limited to the American market. For over six years, our custom conversions have included international customers.
Advantage was recently contacted by Calbrandt, an industry leader in railcar handling equipment with a global reach and market. They had a unique requirement – a container to be used as an operating space for railcar switch gear motor mechanisms, to be installed at an oceanfront facility. To meet their needs, Advantage converted a 20’ open-side container with modifications including a fully galvanized floor, specialized bolts to hold the equipment in place, and provisions for custom aluminum venting systems. The container is divided into two separate areas, each with its own door – one for the operators, the other for the equipment itself. And due to the oceanfront location, the exterior received a special 25-year marine grade paint treatment for corrosion protection. Several photos of the finished container are shown below.
