Container Sizes

Container ship capacity is calculated in 20-foot units (TEU). Typical loads are either a combination of 20-foot and 40-foot (2-TEU) ISO-standard containers.

The two most popular sizes are 20-foot and 40 foot (other larger sizes also available) used for loading, transporting and unloading goods. Containers are commonly used in ships, trucks and trains.
Shipping containers are available in a variety of types, such as open end, open side, open top, flat rack, reefer (refrigerated), tank (liquid bulk).
