Shipping containers

Intermodal container is often made of metal and usually used for transporting unitized cargo. Normally that stands for cargo that is arranged in smaller packages, bags or boxes. Occasionally package freight is transported on pallets. Intermodal containers are frequently used for transporting bulk goods as well as liquid cargo as well as cargo that need special conditions while being transported (like heating).

 

Construction of an intermodal container is vastly resistant, which makes it possible to use it many times with no risk of breaking the container. All the intermodal containers come with needed equipment which allows transport companies to secure it during shipment and also to move it securely between places. The equipment makes packing and unpacking intermodal containers much less difficult. 

Shipping containers are especially used in maritime transport. Container ships are commonly used to transport goods from all over the world, primarily from continent to continent. Shipping containers do not only allow the loads to be handily loaded, but also enable the transport provider to stack them on top of each other, which saves space.

Container ships are usually transporting shipping containers between continents, the inland shipping is usually done by lorries.

 

Types of intermodal containers

The most common shipping container is 20-foot long, which is around 6,1 meters. This kind of container is often called a container 1C. It has about 33 m2. Dimensions of a 20 ft intermodal container are: 1,11 x 0,9 x 0,9 ft.

Other type of shipping container is a container 1A, which is 40-ft long and its dimensions are: 2230 x 2438 x 2191 mm. In 1C and 1A containers you can ship about ten pallets. They are usually used to ship packed goods.

 

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

 

Other kind of container is metal „flat rack” container, used chiefly to transport large loads with unusual shapes as well as dimensions. This type of container also has „collapsible” variant, which has collapsible walls.

 

Other types of containers are: temperature controlled containers (like heated containers) for goods that are temperature sensitive, tank containers (for transporting liquids), ventilated containers and many more.

 

Cost of intermodal container shipping

 

Price of shipping an intermodal container depends on the dimensions of the container and the type of cargo that is being transported in the container. Other price-defining factors are: route length and quality as well as possible additional work that the transport provider will have to complete in order to deliver the cargo ( like help with loading and unloading).
