Whether it is door-to-door or port-to-port, we are experts in handling even special equipment needs. This includes flat rack, open-top containers, dry, temperature-controlled and refrigerated. We operate a core carrier program to make sure that cargo is handled in LCL containers by approved and reliable carriers.
Container dimensions & specifications
20 ft container – defined by its length though there is a lack of standardization in regard to height, ranging between 4 feet 3 inches (1.30 m) and 9 feet 6 inches (2.90 m), with the most common height being 8 feet 6 inches (2.59 m). Also, it is common to designate 45-foot (13.7 m) containers as 2 TEU, rather than 2.25 TEU.
40-foot container – a standard container with the same width but a doubled length of forty feet which equals one forty-foot equivalent unit (often FEU or feu) in cargo transportation. In order to allow stacking of these types, a forty-foot inter-modal container has an exact length of 40 feet (12.192 m), while the standard twenty-foot inter-modal container is slightly shorter having an exact length of 19 feet 10.5 inches (6.058 m).
Twenty-foot, “heavy tested” containers are available for heavy goods such as heavy machinery. These containers allow a maximum weight of 67,200 pounds (30,500 kg), an empty weight of 5,290 pounds (2,400 kg), and a net load of 61,910 pounds (28,080 kg).
