CONTAINERS DIMENSIONS

Intermodal Shipping Container

The container is the loading unit used for intermodal freight transport. With the international agreements that took place in the 1970s, standardization of container dimensions, dimensions and volumes was carried out, and the spread of the ISO – International Organization for Standardization Container for air, sea and land transport. The use of the standard container in international transport has allowed the volume of goods transported, the reduction of damage to goods and the improvement of logistic operations in terms of speeds of embarkation and disembarkation throughout the world. The agreements have decided that each type of container has:
• standard dimensions;
• homogeneous attacks to improve handling in wharfs, docks and warehouses around the world;
• A unique number: 4 letters (the first three identify the proprietary company), 6 numbers and a final number called check-digit, obtained from a 4-letter and 6-digit calculation algorithm. At present, many types of containers can be used to meet all transport needs: Container Box, Container High Cube, Flat-Rack Container, Open Top Container, Reefer Temperature Container (Reefer).
There are also special containers subject to availability by the shipping carrier such as Tank Containers and 45’ft Containers. Standard ISO containers can also be used to transport liquids, thanks to the installation inside the container of a flexible tank called Flexitank. The Sped Sticks can propose the most suitable solution to customer needs, considering the destinations served by the major carriers, the type of goods to be transported, optimizing shipping times and costs.
