What is a sea container?

A sea container is a standard-sized rectangular box used to transport freight by ship, rail and highway. International shipping containers can range from 10ft to 40ft long and must conform to the international Standards Organisation (ISO) standards. Plus sea containers are specifically designed to fit in a ships’ hold. For a sea container to be used for international shipping it is required to have a current CSC certificate which should be provided by the supplier for this purpose. When purchasing a container for any purpose today caution should be exercised as many containers in the market are not true sea shipping containers. We personally do not ship containers abroad, but we are CSC certified and we can put you in touch with international shipping agents who can arrange this for you.
