Shipping containers

Intermodal container is normally made of metal and frequently used for shipping package cargo. Normally that means cargo that is packed in smaller containers, bags or cases. Occasionally package freight is transported on pallets. Intermodal containers are often used for shipping bulk goods and liquid cargo as well as cargo that require certain conditions while being transported (e. g. heating).


Construction of an intermodal container is pretty durable, which allows to use it many times with no danger of breaking the container. All the intermodal containers come with professional tools which enables transport providers to fasten it during transport and also to transport it safely between destinations. The tools make loading as well as unloading shipping containers much less difficult. 

Intermodal containers are especially used in maritime transport. Container ships are widely used to transport items from far-off parts of the world, mainly between continents. Intermodal containers don’t just enable the items to be conveniently loaded, but additionally allow the shipping provider to stack them on top of each other, which saves space.
