The containers for the Physical Internet (PI) are one of the core elements to achieve an open, global and interconnected logistics network in the future. In the presented poster the particular focus is on the requirements and functions which a future PI-handling container has to fulfil. The findings in the MODULUSHCA and the Go2PI project are merged with ongoing research work in order to prioritize and show the impact of box functionality. The presented poster furthermore shows concepts for realizing a PI-handling container and results of ongoing research work concerning reusable packaging for protecting products inside the PI- handling container.
