Shipping Container Trends In 2020 – What to Expect

2020 is here! And with it brings new ideas and huge new opportunities in the shipping container industry. Now that container use and repurposing is at an all-time high, this continuing craze will forge into the new decade and beyond. Read on to discover the shipping container trends in 2020 and what to expect.

Upping that “cool” factor

Recycling, repurposing, and upcycling stuff has not only become vital for Mother Nature—it has also become cool. Today’s forward-thinking folks want to set themselves apart from the resource-wasting hoards. They long to live and work in a structure that won’t cause an added burden to the environment—all while creating a space that speaks to their own sense of individuality. And as the need for more space and less resource waste continues, this 2020 trend is only going to increase.

Renovating without shutting your doors

As a business owner, you have worked hard to get and keep your customer base. But renovations can cause restaurants, cafés, and, other eateries to shut down their businesses indefinitely. And as loyal as your patronage might be, sooner or later, they are going to move on to your competitors. If you need to close your doors because of remodeling, don’t leave your bread and butter out in the cold. 2020 will see an increase in semi-permanent spaces—perfect for serving up the food and drinks while your location is getting a facelift.

Taking a repurposing approach to business

No matter where you look, sustainability trends are the talk of the town. These days, consumers are more apt to choose companies that take a repurposed approach to business. Using a repurposed shipping container, business owners can design a fresh new creation, turning something old into something new again.

With very little investment and some imagination, you can, for example, transform a pop-up shop into a traveling travel agent space.

Taking the minimalist movement to the next level

As the population increases and living space decreases, people are looking for practical, affordable options. Future homeowners are starting to ride the container repurposing wave. And why not? They are built to last and come in a wide range of sizes, from 6’ all the way to 40’.

Creating sustainable play areas

Long gone are the days of dangerous, wasteful parks and playgrounds. Landscape architects have been forced to rethink how children play and learn in these environments in the last few decades. Due to their adaptability, safety, and affordability, repurposed containers are starting to make a major appearance in parks everywhere—a trend that is surely going to make a huge mark in 2020.

Trends can be powerful, helpful tools—especially when it comes to making the world a better place.
