Shipping Container Uses: Temporary Sales Kiosks and Product Displays

Shipping containers are showing up everywhere these days, and they're being used for nearly every imaginable purpose - from the original design purpose of shipping goods overseas to storage and modular building units, and even pop up displays for product launches and brand introductions.

Case in point, while taking a break from the Intermodal Asia event last week we came across a few shipping containers near Jing'An Temple.

The iconic American brand of denim jeans, "Levi's", was educating local consumers and displaying their products in a pop-up container kiosk that was two floors and is constructed of five 20' shipping containers, with one angled for an enclosed stair case. The shipping container store was custom painted and had full size windows on the front of each container. More pictures can be seen on our Facebook page.
