Shipping Container

A shipping container, also known as a cargo container, is a standardized metal box designed for the transportation and storage of goods via various modes of transportation, primarily sea vessels, but also trains and trucks.

These containers come in standard sizes, such as 20-foot and 40-foot lengths, and are built to withstand the rigors of international shipping, including stacking, handling, and exposure to harsh environmental conditions during transit. Shipping containers play a pivotal role in global trade by providing a secure, cost-effective, and efficient means of transporting goods across long distances. They facilitate the seamless transfer of cargo between different modes of transportation and are essential components of modern logistics and supply chain management systems.
