Shipping containers

Intermodal container is often made of metal and frequently used for shipping unitized cargo. Usually this stands for load that is arranged in smaller packages, bags or boxes. At times unitized cargo is shipped on pallets. Shipping containers are frequently used for transporting bulk goods as well as liquid goods and also loads that need certain conditions during transport (for example cooling).


Structure of a shipping container is pretty strong, which makes it possible to use it many times with no risk of damaging the container. All the shipping containers come with needed equipment which allows transport providers to fasten it during shipment and also to move it securely between destinations. The tools make packing and unloading shipping containers much more effortless. 

Intermodal containers are especially common in maritime shipping. Container ships are often used to transport items from all over the world, mainly between continents. Intermodal containers don’t only enable the loads to be quickly unloaded, but additionally allow the shipping provider to stack them on top of each other, which saves space.

Container ships are mostly transporting shipping containers between continents, the inland transport is commonly provided by lorries.

There are also „open top” versions of the 1A and 1C containers. Their dimensions are akin to regular 1A and 1C containers, only they are opened from the top and not from the side. This type of containers is commonly used to transport bulk cargo.
