5 Different Types of Shipping Containers

Standard containers

is a huge, standardized shipping container that has been designed and built for intermodal freight transport, which means that these containers may be utilized across numerous modes of transport - from ship to rail to truck - without having to unload and reload their goods. These are the typical shipping containers for dry goods that were previously mentioned. Typically, they are 10 feet, 20 feet, or 40 feet long.

Flat rack containers

This container is used to send cargo overseas when it cannot fit inside a regular container. A flat rack has only end walls or support posts, allowing items to be loaded from the top and/or sides. It's used to transport or store huge or uncommon cargo dimensions. Many things that must be sent are classed as "unusual loads," and they are ideal for shipping automobiles, machinery, and boats.

Open top containers

As implied by the title, the lack of a roof on these containers allows for the shipping of items of any height. They are therefore perfect for objects like machinery or logs. Because open top containers must be loaded from above, they are most typically used to load large items or mortar using a crane or forklift truck. A tarpaulin can be used to cover the open top container. And unlike a standard shipping container, this one doesn’t have side doors.

Reefer containers

A refrigerated container sometimes referred to as a reefer, is a kind of intermodal container (shipping container) used in the intermodal transportation of freight that may be chilled to carry temperature-sensitive, perishable commodities including fruits, vegetables, meat, and other items of the like. Refrigeration equipment is in reefer containers, and the ship's electrical system powers it. The goods in this container are chilled. It is good for pharmaceutical goods or foods.

High cube containers

These containers give you additional space for your goods with an extra foot in height. Metal boxes known as high cube containers are used to convey freight by rail or water. Their utility is enhanced by their large volume and lightweight. High cube containers are advised by experts, especially given their resistance to extreme weather. It also comes in a range of sizes and is taller than normal containers. Because they are one foot taller, high cube containers can hold goods that are taller.
