About Shipping Container Structure



Shipping containers are graded by condition. New containers have only been used once, while cargo-worthy used containers are usually less than 10 years old. Wind and watertight containers are structurally sound, even with a few dents which is not the case with as-is containers.


Corten Steel

Corten steel is a steel alloy designed for outdoor applications. Corten steel shipping containers are therefore designed to withstand the weather and elements without the need for painting.



Shipping containers of all sizes have marine-grade flooring that can withstand almost 10 tons of payload. This sturdy flooring is treated to withstand many different contaminants that could spill during shipping.



Shipping containers typically come with two doors on one end that open to the outside. These doors are sealed with a 2-stage EPDM rubber to withstand temperatures from -100 °C to +300 °C.



The containers have many features that make them easier to handle and move. In addition to having lifting points at each top corner, they also have forklift pockets for easy loading and unloading.



Each container must meet international safety standards and is designed to protect valuable cargo between ports. Shipping containers have locking bar handles, door seals, and weatherproof vents.
