What is Container?
Cargo containers, also known as shipping containers, freight containers, or ISO containers, are large, standardized steel boxes that are used to transport goods by ship, truck, and train. They are designed to be durable and secure, and can be easily loaded and unloaded, and stacked on top of each other to maximize cargo space.
What is ISO container standard?
An ISO container, also known as an intermodal container, is a standardized steel shipping container that is used for the transportation of goods by ship, truck, and train. The "ISO" in the name refers to the fact that these containers are built to comply with the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) specifications.
ISO containers are designed to be easily loaded and unloaded, and can be stacked on top of each other to maximize cargo space. They are also built to be durable and secure, and can withstand harsh weather conditions and rough handling during transportation. One of the key advantages of ISO containers is that they can be easily transferred between different modes of transportation, such as ship, truck, and train, without the need for repackaging or re-handling of the cargo. This reduces the risk of damage to the goods and saves time and costs in the transportation process.
ISO containers come in a variety of sizes and types, including 20ft and 40ft standard containers, 40ft high-cube (HC) containers, flat rack containers, open-top containers, and refrigerated containers. Each type of container is designed to meet the specific needs of certain industries or types of cargo.
In the cargo transportation industry, Tân Thanh Container, an ISO container provider, can help you choose the right container for your specific needs and ensure that it complies with ISO standards and regulations.
