What Is A Cargo Container
Standard 20' & 40' cargo containers can be moved easily from truck to rail or ship. FreightCenter arranges pickup and delivery of container freight.
What Is A Cargo Container?
A sea cargo container is a large metal container used for shipping goods via sea transport. These containers are designed to be durable and able to withstand the harsh conditions of long ocean voyages. Sea cargo containers come in standard sizes of 20 feet, 40 feet, and 45 feet in length, and are generally 8 feet wide and 8.5 feet high. They are constructed with heavy-duty steel walls, floors, and roofs, and are typically lined with wood or other materials to protect the cargo from damage during transit.
The use of standardized sea cargo containers has revolutionized the shipping industry, as it allows for easy loading and unloading of goods from ships, trains, and trucks without the need for extensive handling or repackaging of the cargo. This has greatly reduced transportation costs and improved efficiency in global trade.

Standard Sizes and Uses of Cargo Containers
Cargo containers can easily be moved from one transportation mode to another. This is called intermodal shipping. This means the cargo is carried by more than one transportation system. Carriers that use cargo containers to transport goods over long distances by train or ship internationally use these containers.
There are two types of freight shipping: full container load (FCL) and partial container load (PCL). Freight that travels by rail or ship is typically less expensive than freight that moves by truck or air because the transit time is much longer.
