Dry Storage

Container

Dry storage containers are some

of the most common containers

used in the shipping

industry.They are made of

Corteen steel,wich make them

very strong.These containers do

not allow for temperature

controls, so they are not suited

for moving food or chemicals that

require refrigeration.

M E A S U R E S

They come in lengths of 10, 20,

and 40 feet, and they are

designed to transport dry goods

C O N T A I N E R

A flat rack container has only two sides and it has not a roof .With

collapsible sides, these are like simple storage shipping containers

where the sides can be folded so as to make a flat rack for

shipping of wide variety of goods.

They are made of steel for strength and durability.They are

used both for heavy loads and also for machinery and pipes

MEASURES

Most flat rack containers are either

20 or 40 feet long

P Á G I N A T R E S |


O P E N T O P

C O N T A I N E R

They have convertible

top that can be

completely removed to

make an open top so

that materials of any

height can be shipped

easily.

As they do not have a roofthey can be loaded over the top

making it easier to load heavy or bulky goods that can be

difficult to get through the door. To cover the goods are usually

put a tarpaulin

MEASURES

They are between twenty

or forty feet

P Á G I N A C U A T R O |


TUNNEL

CONTAINER

Container storage units provided with doors on both

ends of the container, they are extremely helpful in quick

loading and unloading of materials.

MEASURES

P Á G I N A C I N C O |


OPEN SIDE STORAGE

CONTAINER

These storage units are provided with doors that can change into completely

open sides providing a much wider room for loading of materials.

The container is comprised of 14-gauge corrugated steel panels throughout,

lockable double doors on one end, as well as 1-1/8” thick marine plywood

flooring on the interior.

MEASURES

The open side containers are available in 20ft and 40ft lengths.

They are also available in both standard height (8’6”H) and high

cube (9’6”H) varieties (depending on availability). Open side

containers are particularly useful when it comes to loading and

unloading oversized materials.


Double doors

container

They are kind of storage units that are provided with double

doors, making a wider room for loading and unloading of

materials. Construction materials are steel, iron etc

The difference between a standard shipping container is the

configuration of the doors.


REFRIGERATED ISO

CONTAINERS

These are temperature regulated shipping containers

that always have a carefully controlled low temperature.

They are exclusively used for shipment of perishable

substances like fruits and vegetables over long distances.

They are used for the transportation and the temperature sensitive

cargo.The refrigerated containers have an exhaustive control so that the

merchandise is at the correct temperature

The measures are between 20 or 40 feets


INSULATED OR THERMAL

CONTAINERS

These are the

shipping storage

containers that

come with a

regulated

temperature

control allowing

them to maintain a

higher

temperature.

The choice of material is so done to allow them long

life without being damaged by constant exposure to

high temperature. They are most suitable for long

distance transportation of products

The dimensions are between 20 and 40 feets .


Tanks

Tanks are another kind of

container storage unit. This type of

containers is deployed for the

transportation of materials which

are in the form of liquids or to be

more precise, fluids. They may

also be used to store and

transport goods like sugar but are

normally exclusive to liquid goods.

Tanks are critical because they

form a large part of the entire

shipping industry.

They are usually made up of steel to increase the

strength and also by anti-corrosive materials to increase

their durability and protect the goods stored inside.

Many times they are used to transport oil and fuel.

Some tanks may also be used to transport gaseous

material, but this is very rare. They come in various

sizes.


Cargo storage roll

container

A foldable container, this is one of the specialized container

units made for purpose of transporting sets or stacks of

materials. They are made of thick and strong wire mesh

along with rollers that allows their easy movement.

Availability in a range of colored wire meshes make these

shipping container units a little more cheerful.

The exterior dimensions of

ISO Shipping Containers are

8'0" (2.438m) wide, and 8'6"

(2.591m) tall. The most

common lengths are 20'

(6.058m) and 40' (12.192m).

There are also "High Cube"

containers, which are most

common in 40' lengths, and

are a foot taller at 9'6"

(2.896m) tall.


Half height

containers

Half height containers are another important kind of shipping container. These are the kind

of shipping containers which are half the height of full sized containers. They are mostly

made up of steel to increase strength and durability. Half height containers are normally

used for the transportation of goods like coal, stones or other goods which require easy

loading and unloading. They are used to transport heavy cargo, vehicles, pipes, tools and

other equipment. Open half height containers are also available which can be used to load

the goods from the top side. They can also be manufactured according to the

requirements of the customer and hence come in different sizes as well as structure.


Car carriers

containers

Car Carriers are the kind of container storage units which are specifically

designed for the transportation and shipment of cars over long distances

by sea routes. Cars are not usually transported by ship. However, in some

cases, shipping arrangements need to be done for the vehicle to be

transported. Transportation of automobiles on the sea is usually done

with roll on roll off shipping arrangements which are cheaper than car

carrier shipping containers. They have collapsible sides which make it

convenient to fit a car inside the container without damaging it. They can

come in various sizes and dimensions. Even though these containers are

known as car carriers, they can be used to transport any kind of

automobile vehicles.

Dimensions

Overall length: 18.75m.

Height: 4.75m(+-50mm).

Overall Width of Car- Carrier

is 2.6m(+-10mm).


Intermediate Bulk

Shift Containers

Intermediate bulk shift containers are storage shipping containers which are

specifically made for the transportation of intermediate goods. They can be used

to carry large amounts of materials which can include liquids or semi-solids and

are usually used to shift the kind of material which requires to be further packed

and sent off to a final spot after arriving at its destination.

They are also reusable and can come in various sizes, dimensions, and colors. Some

advantages of these containers are that they are relatively cheap to ship, they are

highly organized, mobile and integrated. They are also very durable and provide a

consistent and reliable way to store material. They are often used to transport bulk

chemicals, raw materials, food syrups, petrochemicals, paints, and pharmaceutical

compounds.

An average IBC base dimension is 45

in × 45 in (1,143 mm × 1,143 mm).

When compared to pallets of drums,

IBC tanks are capable of carrying

equivalent volumes in less shipping

space and in significantly less steps,

both manufacturing and logistic.


Drums are circular shaped

shipping container units. They are

made up of materials like steel,

hard plastic, fiber or weight

metals. Drums are strong and

durable. These containers are

small in size but have a large

volume due to their shape.

Hence, they required extra space.

Drums are also called barrels in

common language.

They are mostly used to handle and transport bulk materials, usually

liquids. Drums can be used to ship petrochemicals or other liquid

products as well. Most of the material that they transport is dangerous

or highly inflammable. They can come in various sizes. Normally, each

drum has a capacity of 200 liters.

Drums

Standard drums have inside dimensions of 572 millimetres

(22.5 in) diameter and 851 millimetres (33.5 in) height.

These dimensions yield a volume of about 218.7 litres (57.8

US gal; 48.1 imp gal), but they are commonly filled to about

200 litres.


Platform container

Platform containers are the kinds of containers which do not have

any sides or roof. They are a base or a platform like the name

suggests. They are not very commonly used. When they are used,

they are normally used for cargo which has an odd size and cannot

be fitted into any other type of shipping container units. They come

in a standard length of 20 feet or 40 feet, but the length can also

vary depending on the demand of the manufacturer or the client.


Special purpose

container

Special purpose containers are not like ordinary containers. They are the containers

that are customized and specifically made for particular purposes usually at the

request of the manufacturer or the client. Due to this, the material used for the

composition of the container and its construction depends on the kind of purpose that

they would serve. Most of the times they are used for security purposes. They can

come in any shape or sizes. Most of the shipping companies do not make these

containers or rather avoid their use because they are expensive to make and to

transport and cannot be used for purposes other than the ones they are currently

serving. They are however still in use because certain goods demand a specific type

and size of containers.Continue reading at

Swap bodies

Swap bodies are a special kind of container shipping units.

They are mostly used in Europe and are not standardized.

However, they are quite useful. They have a strong bottom

part and a top which is convertible. This makes them

suitable to ship many different kinds of products. The

designs of these units are such that they do not waste any

space. That is, they are optimized to minimize empty

weights. They are lifted from the bottom corners. Hence, it

is inconvenient to use them for shipping, and most of the

shipping companies avoid their use.

Swap bodies are generally 2.5 m or 2.55 m wide and are subdivided into

three length categories:

Class A: 12.2 to 13.6 m long (maximum gross mass 34 tons);

Class B: 30ft (9.125 m long);

Class C: 7.15, 7.45 or 7.82 m long (maximum gross mass 16 tons).
