Transport of garment in so called Garment on Hanger (GOH) containers could be cheaper and environmentally friendlier by reusing equipment and making use of a foldable container. This literature study aims to show to what extend this is possible. Three Garment onHanger systems are distinguished, a one time use system, a modular system and a multiple use system mounted in the container. A fourth system is proposed by combining the multiple use system with the 4FOLD foldable container. Significant lower CO2 emission and costs are observed for the roundtrip: Shanghai – Venlo – Shanghai and Shanghai – Stockholm – Shanghai.
