Shipping Containers

Since it was first introduced in the 1950's, container shipping has become an engine of global trade growth. Because of the simplicity, efficiency and low cost of moving cargo in containers on ships constructed specifically for their transport, container shipping has become the dominant method for moving an extensive variety of industrial and consumer goods, including raw materials, semi-manufactured and finished products. It has shortened transit times for customers' cargoes, substantially reduced damage and theft, lowered handling costs, and improved the turnaround time of ships in ports. This has created opportunities for companies across a broad spectrum of industries to source materials and finished goods from a wider range of locations throughout the world

Shippers Checklist
Here is a brief list of what you need to consider if you are purchasing a container and shipping it to an overseas location:

  • Is a container condition survey required for the container prior to acceptance by the carrier? If so, this must be done before the container is loaded. Shipping container companies can provide you to a qualified survey company in the area.
  • Who will provide the chassis or flatbed to move the container? Either the trucker or the carrier provides the wheels under a container. In the rare event that a carrier does not provide this service, you will be notified of the extra cost. If you need special survey or custom work done, there might be a small transportation fee added to cost of container.
  • What is the volume of the cargo and the weight that you will be shipping? Often, over the road weight limitations are much less than the design capacity for a container. Also freight rates are typically less for smaller size shipping containers.
