PODS Inc. - Launches New Container Design at Annual Conference - Introducing the PODS Foldable Container



    CLEARWATER, FLA., March 28 /CNW/ - PODS Enterprises, Inc. (PODS(R)), an
international provider of mobile storage and moving solutions for residential
and business customers, announced today the introduction of the fourth
generation PODS brand container. The new container, unveiled at PODS' Annual
Conference held March 21 - 23 in Palm Harbor, Florida, is capable of folding
down to a maximum height of 18 inches off the ground. This mobile container is
as strong as the original and was designed to easily transport multiple
containers (eighteen) at one time on one transport vehicle. This method
ensures cost-effective quantity transport either internationally or to areas
that need a large quantity of containers resulting from emergency situations
such as a hurricane, tornado, fire and flood.

    Peter S. Warhurst, President and CEO of PODS, said: "We are pleased to
introduce the new container, which will ultimately have a major impact on
efficiently transporting containers globally at a fraction of the cost. The
PODS Foldable also supports our Rapid Response teams who are the first
responders in emergency situations. PODS will now be able to provide large
quantities of containers which will increase the team's efforts in saving
valuable possessions, inventory and documents in areas suffering from the
devastation of a hurricane, tornado or any other emergency situation."

    About PODS

    In 1998 PODS revolutionized the moving and storage industry by
originating the concept of transporting mobile storage containers. The
convenient, cost-effective service is unique in that the patented hydraulic
lift system (only available with PODS) is designed to significantly reduce
shift in contents while the PODS brand container is being loaded onto the
truck for transport. The container is then securely transported state to state
or internationally.

    Currently, the PODS network provides service to a population of over 227
million consumer and businesses in the US, Canada and Australia. To date over
721,000 reservations have been completed and there are over 114,000 PODS brand
containers in service.
