What Does 'New Shipping Container' Mean?
The container has been built (most likely in China) and filled with cargo, it has then been loaded on a shipping vessel where it has begun its journey around the world with the cargo being loaded and un-loaded as required. The container has then finished its journey in the UK where the container is emptied and enters the UK domestic market. New containers are sometimes known as ‘one-way’ or ‘once shipped’ containers. Aesthetically, they are much neater than used containers, generally speaking they are available in blue or green. New containers tend to come with a lockbox as standard.
A wide variety of ‘special’ containers can also be provided, these include:
Available in 20ft or 40ft lengths, these containers have full concertina doors to one 20ft side and to one 8ft end, they make loading large or awkward equipment very simple. These units are usually only available as new.
Dual Side Loading Containers
Available in 20ft lengths, these rare containers have concertina doors to both 20ft sides and to one 8ft end! They are ideal base units for a conversion project, or for loading awkward equipment. These units are usually only available as new.
Available in 20ft and 40ft lengths, these units have an extra 1ft in height, therefore, as oppose to the usual 8ft 6ins external height of a standard shipping container, these units are 9ft 6ins externally. Whilst 20ft high cubes only tend to be available as new units, or as modified cut downs, 40ft high cubes are usually readily available as new or used units.
Double Door or Tunnel Containers
Available in 20ft and 40ft lengths, these units have double cargo doors to both 8ft ends of the container, this makes loading and unloading the container very straight-forward as a forklift can unload/load from both ends without having to remove all of the equipment to get to the front of the container. These units are usually available as new, however, used modified units can be fabricated.
High Cube Double Door or Tunnel Containers
Like a standard double door / tunnel container, these units have doors at both 8ft ends, however, they also provide an extra 1ft in height providing an external height dimension of 9ft 6ins. These units only tend to be available as new, unless modified.
Pallet Wide Containers
These units tend to be 45ft long and have a slighter larger internal width of 8ft, they were made with the Euro Pallet in mind, and, the extra internal space means that a pallet wide container can load an additional five Euro Pallets to a standard width 45ft container.
Open top containers are available in 20ft and 40ft lengths and can be procured as new or used units. They were designed for extra large pieces of cargo that was simply too high or awkward for a standard container, these units do not have a roof, instead they are covered by a tarpaulin.
