SOUTHFIELD, MI- The Pro-Tech Group, LLC has been awarded by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office a patent for a Mobile Container System.

The containers are specially designed to fit inside auto rail cars and are fully collapsible a unique, “Industry First” that will dramatically increase back haul opportunities for logistics providers.
