Charleston-based Eveon Containers Inc. has expanded its North American operations to include multiple regions in Canada.
A global provider of sustainable building, shipping and storage solutions, Eveon currently has European headquarters in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, the release stated. North American headquarters were established earlier this year in Charleston to support the more than 30 cities in the United States where containers are available.
The Canadian expansion allows residents and businesses to order decommissioned containers online with an option of delivery within 250 kilometers of Calgary, Alberta, Montreal, Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia, the release stated.

Eveon’s convenient online webshop provides 24/7 purchasing options for used 20- and 40 foot-high cube shipping containers, according to the release. The privately held e-commerce start-up, which confirms operations in five countries by early 2023, looks to modernize the way consumers purchase containers by making the buying and delivery process automated and affordable.
Eveon’s goal is for North America to give decommissioned shipping containers a second life on land.
“We don’t just sell containers, we sell opportunities for customers to launch a business, start a pop-up restaurant or simply to save money on storage,” said Eveon CEO Aad Storm in the release. “With 45 million TEU (20-foot equivalent unit) containers in the world, our goal is to recycle, repurpose, and reduce emissions one container at a time. We believe containers once retired from sea can serve another purpose on land.”
Launched in 2020 in Germany, the global e-commerce company adds that the expansion into Canada was an organic evolution of their internalization plan, the release stated. Quickly positioning itself as an industry disrupter, Eveon Containers experienced more than 500% growth in the United States in 2022.
“After a successful launch in the United States, we are eager to build upon our key learnings, best practices, and business model for the expansion of its neighbors. While each region has unique variables, such as topography and container supply, every market also offers Eveon with more opportunities to recycle containers globally.” Storm noted.
