The Theory of Evolution
Just like living things, products evolve. This evolution is driven by market forces, new technology, and the desire to offer better long term value through innovation. Checkmate’s award-winning dunnage bags are a prime example of products embodying Darwin’s famous hypotheses.
A lesson in longevity
We recently received a twelve-year-old dunnage bag (Serial number 28) back from a customer for inspection and service. Not only was it still going strong, our inspection proved the bag still had years of life left – even after travelling millions of nautical miles. It is a testament to our products, which are designed and manufactured to last.
A true engineer’s work is never done – which is why to keep us as true world-leaders in our field, we continue to make advancements.
The 2014 dunnage bag (Serial Number 67,000) has a number of improvements:
- The corner fill valve allowing full insertion into narrow gaps
- Clearer, larger labelling
- High visibility handles
- Easy to use hose coupling for the top up and pressure maintenance system
- Radio frequency identification tagging for inventory management and service record.
To sum up: the same excellent ruggedness but easier to use, more effective, and a bag which can be tracked for inventory and cost control.
