Shipping containers

Shipping container is often made of metal and mostly used for transporting unitized cargo. Usually this stands for cargo that is arranged in smaller containers, bags or boxes. Occasionally unitized cargo is transported on EUR-pallets. Intermodal containers are often used for shipping granular materials as well as liquid loads and also loads that need specific conditions during transport (like cooling).

 

Structure of a shipping container is pretty strong, which makes it possible to use it many times without the danger of fracturing the shipping container. Every shipping container comes with specific tools which allows transport companies to fasten it for the shipment as well as to ship it safely between places. The accessories make packing and unpacking shipping containers much more effortless. 

Shipping containers are especially common in maritime shipping. Container ships are often used to transport goods from all over the world, mainly from continent to continent. Shipping containers don’t just allow the items to be handily unloaded, but also allow the shipping 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 shipping is usually provided by lorries.

 

Types of intermodal containers

The most frequently used intermodal container is 20-ft long, which is around 6,1 meters. This kind of container is usually referred to as a container 1C. It has around 33 m2. Dimensions of a 20 ft shipping container are: 1,11 x 0,9 x 0,9 ft.

There is also 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 transport around 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 ordinary 1A and 1C containers, only they are opened from the top instead of from the side. This kind of containers is usually used to ship bulk goods.

 

Another kind of container is metal „flat rack” container, used mostly to move large loads with atypical shapes as well as dimensions. This kind of container is also available in „collapsible” version, which has foldable sides.

 

Different kinds of containers are: temperature controlled containers (like heated containers) used for transporting loads that are temperature sensitive, tank containers (for shipping liquids), ventilated containers as well as many others.

 

Cost of intermodal container transport

 

Cost of shipping an intermodal container depends on the dimensions of the container and the type of cargo that is being transported in the container. Additional price-defining factors are: route length and quality as well as probable extra work that the transport provider will have to perform in order to deliver the cargo (for example: assistance with loading and unloading).
