Shipping Container Market
Shipping containers, or intermodal containers, are used for transporting and carrying goods and cargo by sea and land via ships, rails or trucks.

Shipping containers are containers designed for shipping, storage, and handling large-scale cargo and goods into large, unitized loads that can be tightly packed in a ship or yard. In this way, goods are effectively transported and transported without the need for unloading and reloading at intermediate points. These containers facilitate the transportation of goods by land and sea, including by ships, rails, and trucks, as well as by air. These containers range from corrugated boxes to cardboard boxes to large reusable aluminum or steel boxes for intermodal shipments. Most of these containers are designed in an integrated squared shape that enables easy cross-stacking but also improves load-bearing properties while rotational molding. Each container conforms to the specifications and regulations formulated by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
