2. Container size and classification

In order to meet the needs of standardizing containers used on a global scale, the ISO 668:1995(E) set of standards has clearly stated standards for specific container sizes and codes as follows:

  • About width: All ISO containers are 2,438m (8ft) wide
  • About height: Currently, containers are divided into two types, normal and tall. For a regular container, it is usually about 8 feet 6 inches (8’6”) tall. Meanwhile, the tall container has a height of 9 feet 6 inches (9’6”).
  • About length: 40 feet container is taken as standard. However, there are still many types of shorter containers, but when designing, it is necessary to calculate how to arrange and place a 40-foot container that still has a 3-inch gap in the middle.

For example, 2 20′ containers will fit under 1 40′ container with a 3 inch gap between these 2 20′ containers

According to ISO 6346 (1995), sea containers include 7 main types as follows:

  • Department Store Containers
  • Bulk cargo containers
  • Specialized Containers
  • Insulation containers
  • Open roof container
  • Container ground
  • Container Tank

2. Advantages of transportation by sea

  • Sea freight can serve to transport all types of goods, except for items on the prohibited list.
  • Transport goods with a large volume and size.
  • The carrying capacity of sea transport is not limited like other forms of transportation. Allows the carriage of many types of goods.
  • Low cost. Shipping by sea is considered the top priority in transporting goods between countries because it transports a large volume, so the cost is also reduced.
  • The problem of collision during transportation is also limited, safe for goods. Because the sea lanes are very wide, collisions are also rare.
  • Flexible ship schedule, proactive in planning transportation and delivery.
