In 2010 DropBox Inc. began a partnership with Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) that has lasted through today. Working with project managers at SRNL, DropBox Inc. was tasked to engineer, design, and build a shipping container modification meant to house special detection devices to scan the over 7.5 million shipping containers that enter ports around the U.S. every year.
After a modification of the design and additional fabrication work performed by DropBox Inc. in 2015, the “On Dock Rail” (ODR) system is currently undergoing testing at the Port of Tacoma. Developed on behalf of the Department of Homeland Security, the ODR is meant to increase the number of shipping containers that are scanned for harmful or hazardous materials.
Just recently, the ODR developed by DropBox Inc. made it into the SRNL Monthly Report for September 2017 (see image above).
DropBox Inc. and all of our staff are proud of the opportunity we have to work with Savannah River National Laboratory and the Department of Homeland Security on this shipping container modification project.
