CakeBoxx Technologies announced build completion of the first eight modular 60 ft x 12 ft x 3 ft "GEN2 Raceway" platforms. These were designed and architected by CakeBoxx with Royal Caridea,, a U.S. company focused on delivering repeatable, scalable, resource-conservative, and sustainable seafood farming.
Royal Caridea's GEN2 Raceway system is a breakthrough biotechnology innovation enabling localized, sustainable, fresh, and nutritious food production at scale. The food system units are mobile, modular, and vertically stackable. Designed as assemblies of eight or more units which lock together with CakeBoxx-specialized engineered systems technology, the CakeBoxx trademarked platforms are known as 'Raceways' due to their elliptical interior design. Each hosts a closely controlled, circulating, living aquatic environment that enables and supports the growth cycle of healthy and nutritious farmed seafood in a self-contained ecosystem. In the Royal Caridea application, this translates to beautiful, high-quality, and fresh shrimp.
This climate-smart regenerative system minimizes operational space needed while maximizing repeatably farmed resilient and delicious food output. It represents a transformational improvement in efficiency, scalability, and self-sustainability versus current aquaculture farming methods, which do not involve a controllable and repeatable environment. In addition, this delivers far more predictable yields at a much lower cost - a trailblazing technology for economic viability.
Crucially, the GEN2 Raceway system is a huge step forward for sustainable food production and the growth of regenerative agriculture. It is, in effect, a new, ongoing source of locally produced, fresh, and nutritious seafood for population centers around the globe, ranging from third-world remote locations to wealthy urban areas.
"CakeBoxx Technologies has become a world leader in sustainable, optimized supply chains for high-value, high-consequence cargo. We design, architect, and build comprehensive supply chain solutions that reduce risk, improve profitability and deliver sustainability targets, so this project was a natural fit for us," said Daine Eisold, CEO of CakeBoxx Technologies… "even better, it's helping solve one of the world's most important challenges: delivering an ongoing, sustainable supply of fresh, nutritious food that doesn't require long and costly transportation from foreign destinations. Food can be grown locally, anywhere in the world."
CakeBoxx Technologies has been developing transformational modular, versatile transportation and storage platforms since the company's inception in 2011. In 2014 CakeBoxx launched TrusDek®, its patented series of intermodal containers. TrusDek®'s ultra-strong, highly engineered platform technology was developed to be the "deck" component of the company's unique and innovative "CakeBoxx®" two-piece "deck and lid" intermodal containers from which CakeBoxx Technologies takes its name. CakeBoxx has also used TrusDek®'s high-strength, high-resiliency, and adaptable properties to engineer standalone platform solutions for leading commercial and governmental organizations worldwide and across industries, optimizing their value chains to increase velocity and lower cost.
Regenerative aquaculture is the latest marketplace to benefit from CakeBoxx Technologies' solutions. However, the modular, high-strength, high-durability properties of the GEN2 Raceway platforms utilize the same designs, intellectual property, and technology as all other CakeBoxx systems engineered use cases. The GEN2 Raceway continues the company's mission to provide sustainable, optimized supply chain solutions that reduce risk and improve profitability.
In 2017 CakeBoxx engineered its first capture sump platforms for Alaska's environmentally demanding North Slope oil industry. These fit below and adapt to standard ISO containers, securely capturing and storing any environmentally harmful chemical leakage from operating machinery in the containers above. This CakeBoxx platform design technology improves performance logistics and helps customers achieve ecologically responsible, sustainable supply chains.
Similarly, the defense industry has been leveraging CakeBoxx's extraordinary design and engineering capabilities for ultra-strong, custom-sized platforms (with and without CakeBoxx's patented lid) to solve special transport, storage, and logistics problems since 2011. CakeBoxx has built sustainable, optimized transport solutions for key defense customers requiring secure and efficient transport and storage of high-value, high-consequence equipment, and assets of strategic importance.
In 2019 CakeBoxx was selected by one of the world's leading wind energy OEMs to produce over 500 transportation platforms capable of carrying wind turbine drivetrain payloads of up to 105 tons. Since then, CakeBoxx has more than doubled that payload capacity with specialized platforms for larger, heavier 'super load' wind turbine cargos, helping the wind energy industry move critical assets faster and at scale to support Net Zero targets. Additionally, transport times were reduced from months to days, while enabling Zero Defect deliveries.
Importantly, all CakeBoxx solutions utilize a "design for sustainability" approach that ensures customers improve their operations and profitability while delivering on their sustainability goals. Increasingly, organizations are focusing their sustainability efforts on reducing waste, carbon emissions, and energy use. CakeBoxx's core capabilities are essential to these efforts through customized solutions that deliver these transformational, revolutionary benefits, including elimination of the costly and time-consuming practice of wooden crating over-dimensional payloads and dunnage disposal. This is set to continue as additional customer-driven initiatives focus on eco-friendly green supply chain projects, including green steel and other green energy initiatives.
