What are Shipping Containers?
Shipping containers are strong, steel storage boxes, suited to ship contents safely and economically over long distances by road, rail, or sea. Standard containers are typically 8’ wide x 8’-6” high x 20’ or 40’ long. Interior dimensions are slightly smaller.
They can be customized by adding liners, insulation, electricity, heat, air conditioning, windows, doors, and more.
FUN FACT! Shipping containers were developed by Malcolm McLean, the owner of a North Carolina trucking company. In 1956, he shipped containers aboard for the first time and made the voyage from Newark, New Jersey to Houston, Texas.
