Shipping containers

Intermodal container is normally made of metal and usually used for transporting unitized cargo. Normally that means cargo that is arranged in smaller containers, bags or boxes. At times package cargo is shipped on pallets. Intermodal containers are often used for transporting granular materials and liquid goods as well as cargo that need certain conditions during transport (e. g. heating).


Construction of an intermodal container is pretty resistant, which allows to use it numerous times without the risk of damaging the container. Every intermodal container comes with professional tools which allows transport providers to fasten it during shipment and also to ship it securely between locations. The equipment makes packing and unloading shipping containers much easier. 

Shipping containers are particulary common in maritime transport. Container ships are widely used to transport items from far-off parts of the world, primarily from continent to continent. Intermodal containers don’t only enable the items to be quickly unloaded, but additionally enable the transport provider to pile them on top of each other, which saves space.

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


Kinds of intermodal containers

The most common intermodal container is 20-ft long, which is around 6,1 m. This kind of container is often called a container 1C. It has about 33 square meters. Dimensions of a 20 ft shipping container are: 1,11 x 0,9 x 0,9 ft.

You can also encounter „open top” versions of the 1A and 1C containers. Their dimensions are akin to common 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.
