Shipping containers

Shipping container is normally made of metal and frequently used for transporting package freight. Normally that means cargo that is arranged in smaller containers, bags or boxes. Occasionally package cargo is shipped on pallets. Shipping containers are often used for transporting bulk goods and liquid goods as well as cargo that require special conditions during transport (for example heating).


Construction of an intermodal container is vastly tough, which allows to use it many times with no danger of breaking the shipping container. Every intermodal container comes with professional tools which allows transport companies to secure it for the transport as well as to move it safely between places. The accessories make loading and unpacking intermodal containers much more effortless. 

Intermodal containers are especially used in maritime shipping. Container ships are commonly used to transport items from far-off parts of the world, mainly from continent to continent. Shipping containers do not only allow the loads to be quickly loaded, but additionally enable the shipping provider to pile them on top of each other, which helps to save space.

Container ships are usually used to transport shipping containers from continent to continent, the inland shipping is usually done by trucks.


Kinds of intermodal containers

The most frequently used intermodal container is 20-foot long, which is around 6,1 meters. This type of container is often called a container 1C. It has around 33 square meters. Dimensions of a 20-foot intermodal container are: 1,11 x 0,9 x 0,9 ft.

There is also a container 1A, which is 40-ft long and its dimensions are: 0,80 x 0,9 x 0,8 ft. In 1C and 1A containers you can ship about ten pallets. These containers are often used to ship packed cargo.


You can also encounter „open top” models of the 1A and 1C containers. Their dimensions are similar to common 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 goods.


Other type of container is metal „flat rack” container, used mainly to ship large loads with uncommon shapes and dimensions. This kind of container is also available in „collapsible” version, which has foldable sides.


Other types of containers are: temperature controlled containers (like heated containers) for loads that are temperature sensitive, tank containers (for shipping fluids), open-side containers and many more.


Cost of shipping container shipping


Cost of transporting an intermodal container hinges on the dimensions of the container as well as the type of cargo 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 perform in order to deliver the cargo (for example: help with loading and unloading).
