Shipping containers

Intermodal container is often made of metal and frequently used for shipping package cargo. Normally this stands for cargo that is packed in smaller containers, bags or cases. At times package cargo is shipped on pallets. Shipping containers are often used for shipping bulk goods as well as liquid loads as well as cargo that need certain conditions while being transported (for example cooling).

 

Construction of an intermodal container is pretty strong, which makes it possible to use it many times with no danger of breaking the shipping container. Every shipping container comes with professional accessories which allows transport providers to secure it for the shipment as well as to transport it securely between places. The accessories make packing as well as unloading shipping containers much less difficult. 

Shipping containers are especially used in maritime shipping. Container ships are often used to transport items from distant parts of the world, primarily from continent to continent. Intermodal containers do not only allow the goods to be easily loaded, but also allow the shipping provider to stack them on top of each other, which saves space.

Container ships are mainly transporting shipping containers from continent to continent, the inland transport is usually done by lorries.

 

Kinds of shipping containers

The most popular intermodal container is 20-foot long, which is about 6,1 m. This type of container is usually referred to as a container 1C. It has around 33 m2. Dimensions of a 20-foot shipping container are: 5919 x 2340 x 2380 mm.

There is also a container 1A, which is 40-ft long and its dimensions are: 0,80 x 0,9 x 0,8 ft. In 1C and 1A containers you can transport about ten pallets. These containers are usually used to transport packed cargo.

 

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

 

Other type of container is metal „flat rack” container, used chiefly to move large cargo with atypical shapes and dimensions. This type of container is also available in „collapsible” variant, which has collapsible walls.

 

Different kinds of containers are: temperature controlled containers (like heated containers) used for transporting cargo that is temperature sensitive, tank containers (for shipping fluids), ventilated containers and many others.

 

Prices of shipping container transport

 

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