There are several kinds of shipping containers. Check them out below:
SHIPPING CONTAINERS FOR GENERAL USE
These types of containers are considerably popular and very common. You will mostly find them in storage facilities and cargo transportation.
HIGH CUBE SHIPPING CONTAINERS
Compared to the shipping containers for general use, the high cube containers offer an extra foot of internal height. Thus, they are perfect for a cargo that is a bit taller.
CONTAINERS FOR DANGEROUS GOODS
These containers are specifically built to store and transport dangerous cargo, including items like dangerous chemicals, acids, and some electronic devices among others.
THE FLAT RACK CONTAINERS
Like flat pack furniture, the flat rack containers have walls that can be collapsed for easy storage and movement.
With these containers, you can set and maintain a refrigerated temperature over time. Thus, they are suitable for transporting perishable cargo.
Also referred to as “reefer” containers, these containers come with a thermostat for controlling the internal temperature efficiently.
Fit for cargos that are loaded via cranes – the roof of open top containers can be covered using a removable tarp after loading.
SIDE OPENING CONTAINERS
Fit for cargos that are a bit on the wider side or are loaded via forklift. With the side opening container, there is an avenue to load bulky items fast.
OFFICE AND SITE CONTAINERS
These are modified specifically to be used as on-site offices for construction companies. However, they can be used in other industries, where there is a need for a mobile, secure, and temporary office space.
