Shipping containers

Shipping container is usually made of metal and generally used for shipping package freight. Usually this means load that is arranged in smaller containers, bags or boxes. Sometimes package cargo is transported on EUR-pallets. Shipping containers are often used for transporting bulk goods and liquid cargo and also loads that need special conditions while being transported (e. g. heating).

 

Structure of an intermodal container is very resistant, which allows to use it numerous times with no danger of fracturing the intermodal container. All the shipping containers come with professional tools which enables transport providers to fasten it for the shipment as well as to transport it safely between places. The tools make loading and unloading shipping containers much more effortless. 

Shipping containers are particulary used in maritime shipping. Container ships are widely used to transport goods from all over the world, primarily from continent to continent. Intermodal containers do not only allow the loads to be easily loaded, but also enable the transport provider to pile them on top of each other, which helps to save space.

Container ships are mainly used to transport shipping containers between continents, the inland transport is commonly provided by trucks.

You can also encounter „open top” models of the 1A and 1C containers. Their dimensions are similar to ordinary 1A and 1C containers, only they are opened from the top and not from the side. This kind of containers is usually used to ship bulk cargo.
