Shipping containers

Intermodal container is usually made of metal and generally used for shipping package cargo. Normally that stands for cargo that is arranged in smaller packets, bags or boxes. At times unitized cargo is transported on EUR-pallets. Intermodal containers are frequently used for transporting bulk goods as well as liquid cargo as well as cargo that require certain conditions during transport (like heating).

 

Construction of a shipping container is pretty resistant, which makes it possible to use it numerous times with no risk of fracturing the shipping container. Every shipping container comes with special equipment which enables transport companies to secure it for the shipment as well as to move it securely between places. The accessories make loading and unloading intermodal containers much easier. 

Intermodal containers are particulary common 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 don’t only allow the goods to be handily loaded, but additionally enable the transport provider to stack them on top of each other, which helps to save space.

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

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

Other type of shipping container is a container 1A, which is 40-foot long and its dimensions are: 0,80 x 0,9 x 0,8 ft. In 1C and 1A containers you may ship about 10 pallets. These containers are usually used to ship packed goods.

 

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 often used to ship bulk cargo.

 

Another kind of container is metal „flat rack” container, used generally to transport big cargo with atypical shapes as well as dimensions. This type of container also has „collapsible” variant, which has foldable sides.

 

Other kinds of containers are: temperature controlled containers (such as heated containers) used for transporting goods that are temperature sensitive, tank containers (for shipping liquids), ventilated containers and many more.

 

Cost of shipping container shipping

Additional price-defining factors are: route length and quality as well as potential extra work that the transport provider will need to perform in order to finish the job (for example: assistance with loading and unloading).
