On August 27th, the International Trade Market lost one of its greatest unsung heroes, Keith Tantlinger. Tantlinger is best known for designing a new shipping container used to transport commercial goods around the globe. His simple, yet effective design features a corner mechanism which locks containers together, allowing them to be lifted by crane and stacked high on top of each other on ships.

His newly designed containers could be loaded and unloaded faster than ever before – saving money and enabling businesses to sell their goods to new customers all over the world. Without the Tantlinger designed containers, the global economy would be nothing like it is today.

Fornazor International uses Tantlinger-designed shipping containers to transport animal feeds and other ingredients direct from our U.S facilities to our customers all over the world. We offer our products in both 20' and 40' shipping containers. Our feeds can be either bulk loaded into these containers or bagged. For bulk loaded containers, we can use liners and install wooden grain doors at the opening of the containers as needed. We also ship product which has been packaged in bags ranging from 25kg all the way up to 1MT super sacks. Bagged product can be floor loaded or palletized as needed. We can provide custom printed bag tags or printed bags. For more information about our shipping containers or our products, please visit our website today.
