The world's leading free-to-attend container transport and logistics event, Intermodal Europe, is the place to see the latest innovation in container design and management. Intermodal Europe 2013 will be held at the Hamburg Messe in Germany from 8-10 October.
Exhibitor, OÜ Xmetra, an Estonia based company, will be introducing the innovative hazardous materials leak detector at Intermodal Europe 2013. OÜ Xmetra is a technological start-up company involved in the development and manufacture of wireless leak detectors for HazMats transportation applications.
The system is designed to detect leaks of hazardous materials, such as chlorine and bromine, during transportation by ISO tank containers, road tankers and rail tank cars, and to alert managers to potential hazards. This innovative product is reported to improve safety and eliminate the risk of accidents, terrorist attacks and environmental pollution during the transportation and storage of toxic chemicals. It uses special sensors, combined with modern communication, detection and energy saving technologies.

An exclusive white paper produced by Lloyd’s List Intelligence is available for registered Intermodal Europe 2013 visitors to download.

According to the white paper, titled ‘Recent Trends in Container Shipping’, the container fleet has grown by almost 70% in terms of the number of vessels in the last ten years but has more than doubled in teu (twenty-foot equivalent unit) terms. One of the key questions addressed by Lloyd’s List Intelligence is – where is this capacity going?
