Shipping containers

Shipping container is usually made of metal and commonly used for transporting package freight. Normally this means load that is packed in smaller packages, bags or boxes. Occasionally package cargo is transported on EUR-pallets. Shipping containers are frequently used for shipping bulk goods as well as liquid loads and also loads that need certain conditions during shipment (like cooling).

 

Construction of an intermodal container is pretty resistant, which allows to use it numerous times with no danger of breaking the shipping container. Every intermodal container comes with specific tools which enables transport providers to secure it for the transport as well as to ship it securely between locations. The equipment makes packing as well as unpacking intermodal containers much more effortless. 

Intermodal containers are particulary used in maritime shipping. Container ships are commonly used to transport items from far-off parts of the world, primarily between continents. Intermodal containers do not just allow the items to be easily loaded, but also enable the transport provider to pile them on top of each other, which saves space.

Container ships are mostly used to transport shipping containers from continent to continent, the inland shipping is usually done by trucks.

 

Types of shipping containers

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

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 may ship about ten pallets. They are usually used to transport packed cargo.

 

There are also „open top” versions of the 1A and 1C containers. Their dimensions are similar to ordinary 1A and 1C containers, except they are opened from the top instead of from the side. This kind of containers is commonly used to ship bulk goods.

 

Other kind of container is metal „flat rack” container, used mostly to transport large loads with atypical shapes and dimensions. This type of container is also available in „collapsible” version, which has collapsible sides.

 

Different kinds of containers are: temperature controlled containers (such as refrigerated containers) used for transporting goods that are temperature sensitive, tank containers (for transporting liquids), ventilated containers as well as many others.

 

Cost of shipping container transport

 

Price of shipping a shipping container hinges on the dimensions of the container and the kind of cargo that is being shipped in the container. Other factors that affect the price are: route length and quality and probable extra work that the transport provider will have to perform in order to deliver the cargo ( like assistance with loading and unloading).
