CEC Systems is pioneering integrated technology to meet the global challenges of shipping and logistics now and into the future.
Pioneering Shipping and Logistics innovation
CEC Systems was founded in 2015 with the world’s first semi-automated Collapsible-Economic-Container, at the forefront of its shipping and logistics technological innovations.
Achieving a 4:1 ratio, COLLAPSECON® enables 4 units to be collapsed and joined to form a single container; significantly reducing storage, handling and transportation costs throughout the globe.
A world of opportunity
Sea travel has been instrumental in the development of civilisation. Seaborne trade networks provided great economic power to many Empires throughout history and the expansion of these routes led to the Age of Exploration and Discovery.
Shipping and logistics remain the cornerstone of world trade today. Over the past 20 years, global container traffic has grown at an astounding rate and with increasing population, wealth, consumption and industrialisation trends, it’s predicted to continue growing.

What are the big challenges?Due to trade imbalances, container repositioning costs vs. manufacturing and leasing costs, and conflicting agendas along the supply chain, the shipping and logistics industries face complex challenges on a global scale.

How will you stack up?
The nature of shipping and logistics is changing fast. The growth in shipping trade has forced many companies to expand rapidly and make major operational changes to gain even minor efficiencies. These changes, however, often result in knock-on efficiency losses to other parts of their business. In a highly competitive market, these can prove disastrous.
Mergers and acquisitions are becoming commonplace, margins are thin, and a number of once industry leaders are now gone for good. With fewer choices, rates will increase and inevitably be passed onto customers and then everyday consumers.
If big brands continue to disappear, the risk of failing will continue to haunt the
entire supply chain and seriously impact global trade.
But there is hope.
And it lies in the solutions to inefficiencies in the supply chain.
How can CEC Systems help?
CEC Systems design Simple, Efficient, Affordable and Safe (SEAS) technology to create change and discover efficiencies that benefit everyone across the supply chain.
With the world’s first semi-automated Collapsible Economic Container at the forefront of our shipping and logistics technological innovations, CEC systems research and develop integrated solutions to the complex challenges facing these industries.
