Container Types

Previously we have spoken about container grades. But what type of containers do you get?

Previously we have spoken about container grades. But what type of containers do you get?

There are three types:

  • general purpose or “dry van”
  • refrigerated containers or “reefers”
  • special equipment

Dry van or general-purpose containers are the steel containers used to transport most cargo. These come in 3 meters (10 foot), 6 meters (20 foot) and 12-meter (40 foot) lengths and are the most common types of containers available.

Refrigerated containers are made in 6 meter and 12 meters only.

Special equipment such as flat racks and open tops come in both 6 & 12 meter, while tank containers come in 6 meters only.

In the next instalment we will talk about some other variations that are available but are less commonly seen.
