We at Pristine quickly realized the importance of the “box” like steel structure called the “container”. Amongst the few hygiene elements critical to the success of supply chains dependent on containers was a “good quality box”. This is a vehicle for providing repair and maintenance to containers of containers.
It is intriguing that this quintessentially uncomplicated equipment is challenging to maintain. Many supply chains have borne the brunt of a below-par quality container. And, for these good reasons, we stepped in to help improve efficiencies for all concerned -whether it be the Shipping Lines or the exporters – all of who make a simple ask, that is, to give a good quality container at the right time and in good time.
Techlog’s footprint now not only spreads across the various locations where Pristine runs its ICDs but also a few other places where there is demand of quality in repair and maintenance work of containers at reasonable cost and in efficient time.
