Shipping containers

Intermodal container is normally made of metal and usually used for shipping unitized cargo. Normally that stands for cargo that is arranged in smaller containers, bags or cases. At times unitized cargo is shipped on pallets. Shipping containers are often used for transporting granular materials as well as liquid cargo as well as cargo that require special conditions while being transported (like heating).


Construction of an intermodal container is pretty strong, which makes it possible to use it many times without the risk of breaking the intermodal container. All the shipping containers come with special accessories which enables transport companies to secure it for the transport as well as to move it securely between destinations. The tools make packing and unloading shipping containers much more effortless. 

Intermodal containers are especially popular in maritime shipping. Container ships are commonly used to transport goods from far-off parts of the world, primarily from continent to continent. Intermodal containers don’t just allow the loads to be easily unloaded, but also allow the transport provider to stack them on top of each other, which helps to save space.

Container ships are mainly transporting shipping containers between continents, the inland shipping is commonly provided by lorries.


Types of intermodal containers

The most common shipping container is 20-ft long, which is around 6,1 m. This kind of container is often called a container 1C. It has about 33 m2. Dimensions of a 20 ft intermodal 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 can ship about ten pallets. They are usually used to ship packed cargo.


You can also encounter „open top” models of the 1A and 1C containers. Their dimensions are akin to ordinary 1A and 1C containers, only they are opened from the top instead of from the side. This kind of containers is often used to transport bulk cargo.


Other type of container is metal „flat rack” container, used chiefly to transport big loads with uncommon shapes as well as dimensions. This kind of container also has „collapsible” variant, which has collapsible walls.


Other types of containers are: temperature controlled containers (such as refrigerated containers) for goods that are temperature sensitive, tank containers (for shipping liquids), open-side containers and many more.


Prices of shipping container transport


Price of transporting a shipping container hinges on the dimensions of the container and the type of load that is being transported in the container. Other price-defining factors are: route length and quality and potential extra work that the transport provider will have to complete in order to finish the job (e. g. assistance with loading and unloading).
