High Cube Container FAQs

What’s the difference between a high cube container and standard container?

The fundamental difference between a standard height container and a high cube container is the height difference of 12 inches.  For example, a 40ft standard shipping container is 8ft 6in high on the exterior with a 7ft 10in interior, whilst a high cube container is 9ft 6in exterior with a 8ft 10in interior.. This means a 40ft standard container has 2,350 cubic feet of storage space on the interior, whereas the 40ft High Cube container has 2,694 cubic feet of potential storage space. This additional headroom gives a 40ft high cube container an extra 344 cubic feet of valuable storage capability. Learn more about container dimensions.
