Shipping containers

Intermodal container is often made of metal and usually used for transporting package freight. Normally this means load that is packed in smaller containers, bags or cases. Sometimes package freight is shipped on EUR-pallets. Intermodal containers are frequently used for transporting bulk goods and liquid goods and also loads that require special conditions during transport (like heating).

 

Structure of an intermodal container is very strong, which allows to use it many times without the risk of breaking the intermodal container. Every shipping container comes with special accessories which allows transport companies to secure it during transport and also to transport it safely between locations. The tools make packing as well as unloading shipping containers much easier. 

Shipping containers are particulary common in maritime shipping. Container ships are commonly used to ship items from distant parts of the world, mainly from continent to continent. Intermodal containers don’t just enable the items to be quickly unloaded, but additionally enable the shipping provider to stack them on top of each other, which helps to save space.

Container ships are mainly transporting shipping containers from continent to continent, the inland transport is usually done by lorries.

The most popular intermodal container is 20-foot long, which is around 6,1 meters. This type of container is often referred to as a container 1C. It has about 33 square meters. Dimensions of a 20-foot intermodal container are: 1,11 x 0,9 x 0,9 ft.

There are also „open top” versions of the 1A and 1C containers. Their dimensions are akin to ordinary 1A and 1C containers, except they are opened from the top and not from the side. This kind of containers is commonly used to ship bulk cargo.

 

Another kind of container is metal „flat rack” container, used mostly to move large cargo with unusual shapes as well as dimensions. This type of container is also available in „collapsible” version, which has collapsible walls.

Additional factors that affect the price are: route length and quality as well as potential additional tasks that the transport provider will have to perform in order to deliver the cargo (for example: help with loading and unloading).
