Shipping containers

At times package cargo is transported on pallets. Shipping containers are often used for transporting bulk goods as well as liquid loads and also cargo that need special conditions during shipment (for example heating).

Every shipping container comes with special tools which allows transport companies to fasten it for the shipment as well as to move it securely between locations. The accessories make packing as well as unpacking intermodal containers much less difficult. 

Shipping containers are particulary popular in maritime transport. Container ships are often used to ship items from all over the world, primarily from continent to continent. Intermodal containers do not only allow the items to be conveniently unloaded, but additionally enable the shipping provider to pile them on top of each other, which helps to save space.
