Shipping containers

Shipping container is often made of metal and generally used for shipping package cargo. Usually this stands for load that is packed in smaller containers, bags or boxes. At times package freight is shipped on pallets. Intermodal containers are often used for shipping bulk goods and liquid goods and also cargo that need special conditions during transport (like cooling).


Structure of a shipping container is vastly strong, which makes it possible to use it numerous times with no danger of damaging the container. Every shipping container comes with specific equipment which enables transport companies to fasten it for the transport as well as to ship it securely between destinations. The tools make packing as well as unloading intermodal containers much less difficult. 

Intermodal containers are especially popular in maritime shipping. Container ships are commonly used to ship goods from far-off parts of the world, mainly between continents. Intermodal containers do not only enable the items to be quickly unloaded, but also enable the transport provider to stack them on top of each other, which saves space.

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