Containers: Types & Dimensions

Each cargo has specific requirements for the containers used for transportation. The several types of containers are specially designed for those requirements.

It is a responsibility of the shipper to ensure, that transportation requirements of your cargo are fulfilled, i.e. to make sure the goods are packed and stowed in the right container and safe conditions and he must inspect it previously for the effect.

Depending on various factors, dimensions and capacity of each container of same type may be slightly different. The maximum payload of each container furthermore depends also on legal road limitations and/or on the handling capacity of all ports in all countries crossed between Origin and Destination. You should therefore ask the shipping companies or their forwarders when booking a container.
