Royal Wolf, Australasia’s largest supplier of shipping containers, has been recognised for its dedication to innovation and safety at the prestigious Australian Business Awards 2019. The Wolf Lock, a specialised product developed by Royal Wolf, was selected as an ABA100 winner for New Product Innovation and an ABA100 winner for Technology Innovation. Both awards recognise products and services that provide forward-thinking solutions for new and existing market needs.

Neil Littlewood, Royal Wolf’s Chief Executive Officer, believes the Wolf Lock is a game changer in terms of safety and the recognition at the Australian Business Awards will help raise the profile of this premium product in market:

“From a safety perspective, we believe the product is the best in the industry. Specialised designs and products like the Wolf Lock are based on us listening to our customers and designing innovative solutions to meet their needs. Winning this award will help us stay at the forefront of the industry and continue to build a portfolio of containerised solutions that make our customers’ lives safer and easier.”

The Wolf Lock provides a higher level of safety than traditional containers, from removing the risk of people getting locked inside a container through to reducing injury risk when opening and entering a container. It features a tri-locking system with vault-like security to provide an even higher level of secure, weatherproof storage than a conventional container. Opening a conventional container, with heavy steel doors and a number of large levers, requires a twisting motion using two arms. The Wolf Lock, on the other hand, allows access through a single lever that requires significantly less strength and physicality to work it.

Ben Dupres, Senior Designer at Royal Wolf’s Gordon Head Office, says “the Wolf Lock was born out of real customer challenges around safety and accessibility. I believe we have won these awards as a result of the consistent efforts Royal Wolf makes to improve the user’s experience of our products, bolstered by our team’s dedication and positive attitude. For me, winning the awards builds my design confidence, reaffirms our team’s ability, and once again demonstrates the excellent attitude towards safety we have here at Royal Wolf.”

There are currently 993 Wolf Lock containers on hire across Australia and New Zealand. Due to the strong growth in market, Wolf Lock is now available in alternate sizes.
