Utilizing Steel Shipping Containers In the Workplace

The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly changed the world. People are going to focus much more on personal hygiene (which is definitely a good thing), hospitals are going to be better prepared for fast-spreading viruses, and organizations are going to change the way they do business. 

Companies are going to start seriously thinking about implementing a 100% work-from-home policy, switch to virtual meetings, and utilize various forms of technology. It’s not all about tech, however. 

It’s time to start thinking outside the box. It’s time to start taking advantage of steel shipping containers. There are about 17 million steel shipping containers across the globe, but only 6 million are actually in use. That means that roughly 11 million shipping containers are unused. Businesses need to start looking at these containers as more than just storage and transport opportunities. 

Sure these containers are perfect for storing various items or sending shipments across the ocean, but they are actually much more versatile. As more and more businesses begin making the shift to remote work, these steel shipping containers are great options for mobile offices. 

Here are some of the benefits of using shipping containers as mobile offices: 

  • Portable offices — Depending on the size of the container, they can easily be moved from one location to another. As long as you have a truck, you’ll likely be able to tow a small office container anywhere you’d like. 
  • Privacy — Getting things done in a busy office setting can be difficult (not to mention unsanitary). With a steel container, however, you’ll have total privacy and can be extremely productive. 
  • Customizable — One of the main benefits of using these containers as a mobile office is the ability to fully customize every inch of the workspace. Want a few extra windows? Want to build a desk into the structure? Perhaps you want to add a nice patio outside? As long as you’re working with an experienced company, these modifications can be easily made. 

As the workforce looks for new ways to adapt in a post-COVID world, the switch to remote work is certainly on the horizon. Get a jump on the competition and start utilizing steel containers as mobile offices. If you want to learn more — give Integrated Equipment Sales a call today!
