Shipping containers

Shipping container is often made of metal and commonly used for transporting package freight. Usually that stands for load that is arranged in smaller packets, bags or boxes. At times package cargo is shipped on pallets. Shipping containers are frequently used for transporting bulk goods and liquid cargo and also cargo that need certain conditions during shipment (for example heating).

 

Construction of a shipping container is very durable, which makes it possible to use it numerous times with no risk of fracturing the container. Every shipping container comes with specific equipment which allows transport companies to secure it for the shipment as well as to transport it safely between places. The tools make packing and unpacking shipping containers much less difficult. 

Intermodal containers are particulary used in maritime shipping. Container ships are often used to ship items from far-off parts of the world, primarily between continents. Intermodal containers don’t only allow the goods to be quickly loaded, but additionally allow the shipping provider to pile them on top of each other, which saves space.

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

There are also „open top” versions of the 1A and 1C containers. Their dimensions are similar to regular 1A and 1C containers, only they are opened from the top instead of from the side. This kind of containers is commonly used to ship bulk goods.
