Difference between differently described containers ie. Cargo, Freight & ISO containers?

Basically there is no difference. All of our containers, unless they have been modified, are new or used ISO shipping containers originally designed and manufactured to specific international ISO standards.

These design and manufacturing standards ensure the containers can safely withstand the rigours of international trade for many years whilst keeping their contents safe, dry and secure on land, sea, truck and train.

The different prefixes sometimes used are just different ways to describe the same thing. For a container to be used for international shipping it is required to have a current CSC certificate which we can provide for this purpose.

When purchasing a container for any purpose today caution should be exercised as many "containers" in the market are not true ISO shipping containers.

We hope this has answered your question, if not, please do Contact Us and speak to one of our container experts.

 
“The service we received was excellent from finding your website to enquiring about price and availability. The delivery and condition of the container was excellent. The driver was curteous and executed the positioning of the container without fault. Overall the service we received was excellent and I will recommend you for future projects”
