Standard shipping containers

Uniform Dimensions for Universal Applications

Standard shipping containers, the cornerstone of global logistics, offer uniformity and versatility that have revolutionized storage and transportation solutions worldwide. Predominantly available in 20-foot (20ft, twenty-foot) and 40-foot (40ft) sizes, these containers provide the perfect balance between space efficiency and functionality. The 20-foot variant, with its dimensions of approximately 20 feet in length, 8 feet in width, and 8.6 feet in height, offers around 33 cubic meters of usable space, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of applications. The 40-foot model doubles the length, offering about 67 cubic meters of space, suited for larger storage needs or more extensive modifications. Adhering to ISO standard shipping container dimensions ensures these units can be seamlessly integrated into international shipping networks, as well as repurposed for innovative projects like homes, offices, or retail spaces.

Weight Capacity and Structural Integrity

A remarkable feature of standard shipping containers is their robust construction and impressive weight capacity. The 20ft container boasts an average tare weight of 2,300 kg, coupled with a maximum payload capacity of approximately 28,250 kg. The larger 40ft containers increase the tare weight to around 3,800 kg, with the ability to handle payloads up to 30,480 kg. This combination of durable design and substantial weight allowance makes standard containers a reliable choice for heavy-duty shipping and inventive architectural projects alike, ensuring safety and stability regardless of the cargo or conversion.
