About Oceanbox Containers

Oceanbox Containers’ main business is the supply of shipping containers on a global scale. “It is simply a demand-based business”, says Amanda Mallia, Sales & Purchasing Director at Oceanbox. “If our clients have demand for equipment, we look for effective solutions to provide quality equipment in their required POD’. Currently, Amanda works with a small team from their trading offices in Malta, Italy and Cyprus.

Low partner reliability

“We tried a few platforms and solutions to solve the empty container repositioning problem, but they were either not easy to use or only had outdated data”

Empty container repositioning kills margin

“Organizing one-way moves was always very chaotic and took us weeks to close, it was clear that we needed to find an efficient solution to keep expanding!”. “Our biggest problem was we could not reach out to users”, said Mallia. “We tried a few platforms and solutions to solve the empty container repositioning problem, but they were either not easy to use or only had outdated data”.

Find reliable partners to lease out units

Oceanbox had no solution in place for one-way moves except for a few slot companies that asked them to provide units in a few locations. “But we had no control over the units, sometimes they did not arrive, were too late or at a different port”, Mallia said.

One way moves in minutes instead of weeks

“When I have units to reposition, I just type in my pickup and drop-off location and xChange gets us a list of users within seconds”, says Mallia. That’s a huge advantage, Mallia can now get back to her customers within a few minutes and tell them if Oceanbox can sell containers or not. “Using xChange, we could expand our business and deliver more containers on time to our customers all around the world!”.

Knowing that containers arrive on time and in good condition

“Reliability and trust are big words in an industry which lacks transparency”. “xChange creates a safety net for us at Oceanbox”, Mallia concluded, “I can also find partners outside of xChange but chances are high that I don’t see my units ever again!” The huge database of potential partners and locations make xChange more concrete and “knowing that xChange always controls a situation makes us feel better”, Mallia said.

xChange is our safety net

“Trust and reliability are very important for us and since a few months ago we only lease out units to users on xChange because of the safety net the platform provides!”
