Shipping containers

Intermodal container is normally made of metal and generally used for shipping unitized cargo. Usually this means load that is arranged in smaller packets, bags or boxes. Sometimes package cargo is transported on EUR-pallets. Shipping containers are often used for shipping granular materials as well as liquid goods and also loads that need special conditions during transport (for example heating).

 

Construction of an intermodal container is very tough, which allows to use it numerous times without the danger of fracturing the intermodal container. Every shipping container comes with specific tools which allows transport providers to fasten it for the transport as well as to transport it securely between locations. The tools make loading and unpacking intermodal containers much easier. 

Shipping containers are especially popular in maritime shipping. Container ships are often used to transport goods from distant parts of the world, primarily from continent to continent. Shipping containers do not just enable the items to be conveniently unloaded, but also enable the transport 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 trucks.

 

Types of intermodal containers

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

Other kind of shipping container is a container 1A, which is 40-foot long and its dimensions are: 2230 x 2438 x 2191 mm. In 1C and 1A containers you may transport about 10 pallets. These containers are mostly used to ship packed cargo.

 

There are also „open top” models of the 1A and 1C containers. Their dimensions are similar 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 transport bulk goods.

 

Another type of container is metal „flat rack” container, used chiefly to move big loads with unusual shapes as well as dimensions. This type of container is also available in „collapsible” variant, which has foldable sides.

 

Other kinds of containers are: temperature controlled containers (such as heated containers) used for transporting cargo that is temperature sensitive, tank containers (for transporting fluids), ventilated containers as well as many more.

 

Cost of intermodal container transport

 

Cost of transporting a shipping container depends on the dimensions of the container and the kind of cargo that is being transported in the container. Other factors that affect the price are: route length and quality and possible additional tasks that the transport provider will have to complete in order to deliver the cargo (e. g. help with loading and unloading).
