Sizes and types of containers


Container is a unified module for transportation of various cargoes. The sizes of containers and its design features are dependent on the type of cargo to be transported in the container.

In maritime transportation the most common are the containers of 20 and 40 feet. The length of these containers, respectively, is 6 and 12 meters. By their height containers are divided into standard containers and containers of high altitude, the so-called «High Cube» containers. Currently, there is a tendency to increase the capacity of containers, therefore there appear containers that are increased in their length (45 feet) or width (Pallet Wide), as well as increased both in the width and length (45HCPW)

Depending on the type cargo to be transported, there are several types of containers:

 

Multipurpose dry-cargo container (Dry Container) that is used for transportation of unitised and bulk-loaded cargoes. Structurally, a container is a metal box with wide doors. At the corners of the perimeter of the container there are special openings for re-loading (upper and lower fittings).

Refrigerator container (Reefer Container) is designed for transportation of temperature sensitive cargo, i.e. cargoes that require a certain temperature during transportation. These special containers have a high level of thermal insulation and their own refrigeration unit that lets to fully maintain the desired temperature inside the container when turned on.

Such a variety of container types give big opportunities during transportation. The container is indispensable during multimodal transportation. Today, a significant number of cargoes is transported in containers.
