20ft Shipping Container

Types of Shipping Containers

Standard Containers

Standard containers are the most common type for transporting a wide range of goods. They are available in 20ft and 40ft lengths and are constructed from robust Corten steel, ensuring durability and security.

High Cube Containers

High cube containers are similar to standard containers but offer an additional foot of height, providing extra storage capacity. They are ideal for transporting and storing larger or bulkier items.

Refrigerated Containers

Refrigerated containers, also known as reefers, are equipped with temperature control systems to keep goods at a consistent temperature. They are perfect for transporting perishable food, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals.

Open Top Containers

Open-top containers have a removable roof, allowing for the easy loading of oversized cargo that cannot fit through standard container doors. They are commonly used for transporting machinery, timber, and scrap metal.

Flat Rack Containers

Flat rack containers have collapsible sides, making them suitable for transporting heavy and oversized loads. They are often used for machinery, vehicles, and building materials.

Tank Containers

Tank containers are designed for transporting liquids and gases. They are constructed from stainless steel and surrounded by a protective frame, ensuring safe and secure transportation of hazardous and non-hazardous materials.

Features and Benefits


Shipping containers are built to withstand harsh conditions at sea, making them incredibly durable. They are constructed from Corten steel, which offers excellent resistance to corrosion and rust.


Containers are designed with security in mind, featuring lockable double doors and options for additional security measures such as lockboxes and alarms. This makes them ideal for storing valuable items.


Shipping containers can be used for a variety of purposes beyond transport, including storage and conversion into office spaces, homes, and retail units. Their modular design allows for easy modification and customisation.


Shipping containers can be a cost-effective solution for storage and building projects. They are often more affordable than traditional construction methods and can be easily relocated if necessary.


Repurposing shipping containers for new uses is an eco-friendly option, reducing the demand for new construction materials and minimising waste. Containers can also be designed to be energy-efficient, further reducing their environmental impact.
