The Standard container for all types of general cargo.
The Standard container is, as the name suggests, the most generally used container. The Standard shipping container is used for all kinds of general cargo. This container has four closed walls and a closed roof. Doors can be on one side or both ends of the container. The Standard container can be modified to fit your purposes. We have the 20ft and 40ft Standard container in stock. In addition, we sell the 40ft high cube containers.
Please contact our sales team for more information about our Standard containers and possible modifications.
Standard containers regulated by ISO
Our Standard containers are Standard ISO containers, which means they are regulated by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization). The American Malcolm P. McLean is considered the inventor of this mode of transport by using a container for the first time to avoid transshipments at ports. These containers were constructed according to American rules and were not adequate for European road transport. It took some years until the ISO-Standards for containers that are still valid to this day were introduced.
