Shipping containers

Shipping container is normally made of metal and commonly used for transporting package cargo. Usually that means load that is packed in smaller containers, bags or cases. At times package cargo is shipped on EUR-pallets. Shipping containers are frequently used for transporting granular materials and liquid loads and also loads that require special conditions during shipment (like heating).

 

Construction of a shipping container is pretty tough, which allows to use it many times without the risk of damaging the intermodal container. All the shipping containers come with needed accessories which allows transport providers to secure it for the transport as well as to move it safely between destinations. The accessories make packing as well as unloading shipping containers much less difficult. 

Intermodal containers are especially used in maritime shipping. Container ships are widely used to transport goods from all over the world, primarily between continents. Shipping containers do not only enable the goods to be handily unloaded, but also enable the shipping provider to stack them on top of each other, which helps to save space.

Container ships are mostly transporting shipping containers from continent to continent, the inland shipping is commonly done by trucks.

 

Types of intermodal containers

The most common shipping container is 20-foot long, which is about 6,1 meters. This kind of container is usually called a container 1C. It has about 33 m2. Dimensions of a 20 ft shipping container are: 1,11 x 0,9 x 0,9 ft.

Other type of shipping container is a container 1A, which is 40-ft long and its dimensions are: 2230 x 2438 x 2191 mm. In 1C and 1A containers you may transport around 10 pallets. These containers are usually used to transport 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 and not from the side. This kind of containers is commonly used to transport bulk goods.

 

Another kind of container is metal „flat rack” container, used mainly to move large cargo with uncommon shapes and dimensions. This kind of container is also available in „collapsible” version, which has foldable walls.

 

Different kinds of containers are: temperature controlled containers (such as heated containers) used for transporting cargo that is temperature sensitive, tank containers (for transporting liquids), open-side containers as well as many more.

 

Prices of shipping container shipping

 

Cost 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 factors that affect the price are: route length and quality as well as probable additional tasks that the transport provider will need to complete in order to finish the job ( like help with loading and unloading).
