Shipping containers

Intermodal container is often made of metal and frequently used for transporting unitized cargo. Usually that means cargo that is arranged in smaller packages, bags or boxes. At times unitized cargo is transported on pallets. Intermodal containers are often used for shipping bulk goods as well as liquid goods as well as cargo that require special conditions while being shipped (like cooling).


Structure of an intermodal container is pretty strong, which allows to use it many times with no risk of breaking the intermodal container. Every shipping container comes with professional accessories which enables transport providers to secure it for the transport and also to transport it safely between locations. The tools make loading as well as unpacking shipping containers much more effortless. 

Intermodal containers are especially common in maritime transport. Container ships are often used to transport goods from far-off parts of the world, mainly from continent to continent. Intermodal containers don’t only allow the loads to be conveniently loaded, but additionally allow the shipping provider to stack them on top of each other, which helps to save space.

Container ships are usually used to transport shipping containers between continents, the inland shipping is usually provided by trucks.


Types of shipping containers

The most frequently used shipping container is 20-ft long, which is around 6,1 m. This kind of container is often called a container 1C. It has around 33 m2. Dimensions of a 20 ft shipping container are: 5919 x 2340 x 2380 mm.

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


Another kind of container is metal „flat rack” container, used generally to ship big cargo with atypical shapes as well as dimensions. This kind of container is also available in „collapsible” version, which has foldable walls.

Additional price-defining factors are: route length and quality as well as possible additional tasks that the transport provider will need to perform in order to deliver the cargo (for example: help with loading and unloading).
