General information

For safe transport of all types of goods, in an international standard type of container by road, train, sea, air. It facilitates transshipment.

Most cargo planes from 7 metric tons and above accept 20ft and 40ft containers; it is not advisable due to the extra 2 to 4 tons extra weight of the container itself but may be preferable in some cases.

These containers need conformity approval to be able to travel. At a certain stage, due to the deterioration, a "last conformity certificate" is given. The container becomes a "last trip container" at this stage. This type (last trip container) can be purchased to transport goods and be kept on the spot for other usage. Last trip containers are often used as store room, office room, workshop, etc.

The quality of the container will determine its cost. View it before purchasing if possible. The easiest way to check for the presence of holes is to look from the inside with closed doors.  Carefully check for the presence of rust, dents, and holes.

There are many types of standard ISO containers (tanks, flat bed, wood cover, special sizes, etc). We give here the description of the most commonly used types.

Maximum net load capacity is approximately 22T for the 20ft type and  26.5T for the 40ft type.
