Shipping containers

Shipping container is normally made of metal and frequently used for transporting package freight. Usually this stands for load that is packed in smaller packages, bags or boxes. Occasionally package freight is shipped on EUR-pallets. Intermodal containers are frequently used for shipping bulk goods as well as liquid goods and also cargo that require certain conditions while being transported (like cooling).

 

Construction of an intermodal container is pretty durable, which makes it possible to use it numerous times with no risk of fracturing the container. Every shipping container comes with specific accessories which enables transport providers to fasten it during shipment and also to ship it securely between locations. The equipment makes packing as well as unpacking intermodal containers much more effortless. 

Shipping containers are especially common in maritime shipping. Container ships are widely used to ship items from far-off parts of the world, primarily from continent to continent. Shipping containers don’t just allow the goods to be easily loaded, but also enable the shipping provider to stack them on top of each other, which saves space.

Container ships are mainly used to transport shipping containers from continent to continent, the inland transport is usually provided by trucks.

 

Kinds of intermodal containers

The most frequently used shipping container is 20-foot long, which is around 6,1 meters. This kind of container is often called a container 1C. It has around 33 m2. Dimensions of a 20-foot intermodal container are: 1,11 x 0,9 x 0,9 ft.

There is also a container 1A, which is 40-ft long and its dimensions are: 2230 x 2438 x 2191 mm. In 1C and 1A containers you may ship about ten pallets. They are mostly used to transport packed goods.

 

You can also encounter „open top” versions of the 1A and 1C containers. Their dimensions are akin to common 1A and 1C containers, only they are opened from the top instead of from the side. This type of containers is usually used to ship bulk cargo.

 

Other kind of container is metal „flat rack” container, used mostly to ship large cargo with uncommon shapes and dimensions. This type of container is also available in „collapsible” version, which has foldable sides.

 

Different kinds of containers are: temperature controlled containers (like refrigerated containers) for goods that are temperature sensitive, tank containers (for shipping liquids), open-side containers as well as many others.

 

Prices of intermodal container transport

 

Cost of transporting an intermodal container hinges on the dimensions of the container and the type of cargo that is being shipped in the container. Other price-defining factors are: route length and quality and potential extra tasks that the transport provider will need to perform in order to finish the job (for example: assistance with loading and unloading).
