Container Specifications

Choose a container that is optimally equipped for your cargo.

Choosing the right shipping container for your cargo can sometimes be tricky. The dimension, material and construction of containers may vary depending on the cargo and its requirements. It is important that your container is optimally equipped, not only to transport your specific cargo overseas, but also protect it while stored in ports.

We provide a wide range of shipping containers to meet your needs

Whether you need a container for dry cargo, reefer cargo or special cargo, we have you covered. We provide a wide range of standard as well as special shipping containers to meet your needs. With our specification chart for each cargo group, you get a good overview of the various containers we provide.

 

Dry Cargo – protect your goods from moisture damage

Did you know that about ten percent of all containerised goods are discarded by moisture related damages? This does not only cause large economic losses, but also affects our nature.

Dry containers are the most commonly used shipping containers, suitable for almost any dry solid goods. They are typically used for shipping goods that simply need to arrive in the same condition as they were loaded.

So if you want to make sure your goods are protected from moisture damage or any other outside elements, go for a dry one. We provide a wide range of dry containers including steel containers as well as high-cube steel containers for added height.

Reefer Cargo – make sure your goods maintain their temperature

Did you know that a container ship on its journey from Norway to Japan can be exposed to temperature changes from minus 20 up to 30 degrees Celsius as it passes different climate zones?

Reefer containers are equipped with refrigeration units that provide cold air to circulate inside the container and around the cargo to reduce and eliminate heat. They are typically used for shipping perishable cargo that requires temperature­ controlled transportation, such as frozen fish, fresh fruits or vegetables.

So if you want to make sure your goods maintain their temperature in order to stay fresh for the arrival, you should go for a reefer container. We provide a wide range of refrigerated containers including muffler grade stainless steel containers and aluminium containers as well as high-cube containers for added height.

Special Cargo – when you goods need special attention

Do you have an engine that is three metres high and want to stuff it into a container? Some types of cargo simply do not fit into the standard boxes and need extraordinary space.

Special containers are specially designed for shipping non-standard cargo that requires individual transport planning. They are typically used for items that are oversized, impossible to split over different scheduled services and need to be lifted or installed into place.

So if you have goods that need that special attention, you should go for a special container. We provide a wide range of special containers including full height open top containers, flat rack containers with four freestanding posts or collapsible ends, high-cube hanger containers and flat rack high-cube containers as well as high-cube open top containers.
