Container Modifications for Pac-Van and Hyvee

Custom container modifications are one of the many solutions that we offer at Southern Fabrication specialties. From the simplest projects to the most complex ones, our team has the ability to modify storage containers to fit the unique needs of each of our customers.

When Pac-Van, our sister company, recently approached us to create some modified containers to assist them with a project that their team was working on, we jumped at the chance for an exciting co-branded collaboration.

Hyvee, a Midwest grocery retailer, reached out to Pac-Van’s Iowa branch in need of several custom storage containers that could be used to help with grocery store pickup during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our team provided Pac-Van with modified 40’ storage containers that include air conditioning, lighting on the interior, and doors on the side that make getting in and out of the unit easy for employees.  A total of (30) 40’ containers were used to make 15 side-by-side units, and the modifications were completed in a 5-week time frame. The units gave each of the stores an additional 620 sq. ft of space to help with online grocery pickup.

The containers were set up in the parking lots of local Hyvee locations, and they allowed employees to easily drop-off groceries to customers in their cars.
