Jane is our resident expert in shipping containers. She has been working in the shipping container industry for 35 years both for other employers and for herself. Jane worked for ‘Container survey services’ (contractor for Unicon International UK office, where they surveyed containers for shipping purposes) from 1986 until 2000 as a ‘data processing clerk’ initially which led to an office management role. Jane was dealing with shipping lines, container leasing companies and container depots all over the UK.
In 2000 she became director and joint owner of a shipping container resale and leasing company for 9 years and she sold her share in the business in 2009. In September 2012 Jane decided to return to “what she knows” so she started up another shipping container re-sale business called Billie Box Ltd.
Jane is the sole owner and director of Billie Box, which offers 10ft, 20ft and 40ft shipping/storage containers that are perfect for secure static storage on a sale basis. The 20ft and 40ft containers are also available to hire. The containers can also be converted by Billie Box into chemical stores or portable offices. Billie Box offers a full service that includes the supply of containers, as well as various accessories and transportation to your door.
Jane is a keen fundraiser for mainly cancer charities. Over the last 9 years Jane has raised and donated over £40,000 for many charities that include Cancer campaign in Suffolk, AGE Suffolk, St. Elizabeth Hospice, Ipswich, CLIC Sargent, Papworth Trust, Myeloma UK, Centrepoint, Home Start, Suffolk, Colchester & Ipswich Hospital charity, Families in Need and Tiffers Bus, Ipswich and many more.
Jane said: “I have had a successful career, so far, in the shipping container industry, building a good knowledge of shipping containers along with gaining mutual respect from a number of my colleagues and customers. I am here at Billie Box to assist my customers, now and in the future, with all their shipping and storage container requirements. I also really enjoy fundraising and hope to increase the £40K already raised over the last few years”.
