Unlock the Secrets: Explore the Fascinating World of Container Types!


Shipping containers are like the big metal boxes you see on ships, trains, and trucks. They’re used to move goods all around the world. You’ve probably seen those big rectangular ones, right? They come in different sizes, but the 20-foot and 40-foot ones are common. There are also different types of containers that accommodate the different sizes of cargo.

What is a Flat rack container?

A flat rack shipping container is basically a container that’s perfect for hauling stuff that’s too big or oddly shaped to fit into regular containers. Think giant machines, vehicles, or bulky construction materials. These containers only have two sides that can fold down or come off completely, making it easy to load and unload from the sides or the top. They’re like the heavy-duty version of a pickup truck bed, just way bigger. They’re used for shipping all sorts of big stuff on ships, trains, or trucks.

What is a 20/40ft dry container?

You know those big metal boxes you see on ships and trucks? Yeah, those are dry shipping containers. They’re basically like super sturdy boxes that keep stuff safe from the elements while it’s being moved around the world. They come in different sizes, but the most common ones are either 20 feet or 40 feet long. You can chuck all sorts of stuff in them – anything from gadgets to groceries. They’re like the workhorses of international trade, making sure your stuff gets from point A to point B without getting wet or damaged.

What is a 20/40ft reefer container?

Those reefer shipping containers? They’re like the cool kids of the container world, specially made for hauling stuff that needs to stay chill, like fruits, veggies, meats, seafood, meds, and anything else that could go bad. They’ve got built-in fridges to keep everything at just the right temperature while it’s on the move all you have to do is connect it to an electrical socket or something called a genset.

People use reefer containers a lot in global trade to keep stuff like fruits, veggies, and other perishables fresh while they’re being shipped around the world. Inside these containers, you can tweak the temperature to suit whatever you’re hauling, ranging from -30°C to +30°C. And hey, some of these fancy ones can even handle an even wider range of temperatures.

You know those reefer containers? They’re like MVPs in the whole global supply game. They make sure your avocados from Mexico or your sushi-grade fish from Japan stay fresh and tasty while they’re cruising across oceans, highways, and train tracks. These bad boys come with high-tech gadgets to keep an eye on the temperature and make sure everything stays chill (literally). That way, your goods arrive at their destination just as fresh as when they started their journey.

What is an Open Top?

An open-top shipping container is basically a cargo box used for shipping goods, but it’s got a cool feature – the roof is removable! Unlike regular containers with solid roofs, these ones let you load and unload bulky or oversized stuff super easily. They’re perfect for shipping things like machinery, vehicles, or big construction materials. You can just remove the tarp which plays as the roof, and load stuff in from the top using cranes or whatever. They’re sturdy enough to handle the rough seas, and they keep your cargo safe with removable fittings or rods. So, if you’ve got something big to ship, an open-top container might be the way to go!
