20 ft Shipping Container For Sale

WHAT IS A 20 FT SHIPPING CONTAINER?

A shipping container is used for cargo transportation, storage and handling by freight forwarder. They usually come in sizes of 20 foot, 40 foot and 45 foot. A 20 foot container has the capacity of up to 32,500 kilograms and can be either purchased brand new or second-hand. 20 foot containers are typically 20 feet long, 8 feet wide and 8 feet high with a volume of 1,360 feet.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF SHIPPING CONTAINER

FLAT RACK CONTAINER

Heavy and bulky cargo and machinery may be handled and shipped by a flat rack container, given that its collapsible sides can be folded to form a flat rack, hence easing the storage process.

GENERAL PURPOSE CONTAINER

A general purpose container is also known as a dry storage container, and it is very versatile as it may be used to store and transport any general cargo. Within these containers, there are liner bags which contribute to its ability to transport bulk cargo. Oil is a typical example of bulk cargo, where it is a commodity that is shipped without packaging and in large quantities.

VENTILATED CONTAINER

The special feature of a ventilated container is that it comes with gaps in the top and bottom longitudinal rails, which gives it the ability to provide natural ventilation for shipments. Products that require ventilation, such as green coffee beans, can hence be transported using a ventilated container.

TANK CONTAINER

Tank containers are made of good quality anti-corrosive steel, ensuring that products are preserved during transportation. With this, liquid materials are almost always shipped using these containers.

THERMAL CONTAINER

A thermal, or an insulated container, has the purpose of regulating high temperature. Its internal material is hence made to prevent damage from the exposure to high temperature.

CONVENIENCE

If companies do not own a container, they would have to schedule for a delivery whenever there is a need for container usage. On the contrary, if they do own one, it would mean that the container would be available for usage at any time, making it so much more convenient.

CUSTOMIZATION

In the case whereby companies need to have major or permanent modifications to cater to their shipping requirements, they should consider purchasing containers. This is because rented containers may not permit such customisation to be done.

LONG TERM USAGE

When companies buy shipping container, it would be more economical for them when they need to use the shipping containers often and for a long time period, since rental costs may accumulate to become more than the purchasing cost of a container.

GOOD INVESTMENT

When companies purchase shipping container, they would be entitled to rent it out for the use of other people in order to earn some additional income, giving companies the opportunity to recover the initial purchasing cost of the container.
