Types of containers

An intermodal container (also known as a container, freight container, ISO container, shipping container, hi-cube container, box, sea container, container van) is a standardized reusable steel box. Intermodal containers are used to store and move materials and products efficiently and securely in the global containerized intermodal freight transport system. "Intermodal" indicates that the container can be used across various modes of transport, (from ship to rail to truck) without unloading and reloading its contents. Lengths of containers, which each have a unique ISO 6346 reporting mark, vary from 8 to 56 feet (2.438 to 17.069 m) and heights from 8 feet (2.438 m) to 9 feet 6 inches (2.896 m). There are about 17 million intermodal containers in the world of varying types to suit different cargoes 

Besides the most common 20'STD, 40'STD 40'HC and ocean containers, we also use a 45' ocean container High Cube (high altitude), Open Top (open) and Flat Rack (so-called flat container) with dimensions of 20' and 40', etc. However, as a rule, not all shipping lines or international companies offer these types of shipping containers for international transport. 

Parameters of ocean containers of various types: the standard 20-foot container, standard 40 ft container, 40 ft container of high capacity, Open Top and Flat Rack. External and internal dimensions, container door dimensions, capacity and max cargo weight.
