Containers, also known as containers, are large loading containers designed for revolving use. If the container is used for transshipment, the goods can be loaded directly in the consignor's warehouse, and then shipped to the consignee's warehouse for unloading. When the vehicle or ship is replaced midway, there is no need to take the goods out of the box and replace them.
The size of the container includes the outer and inner dimensions.
The external dimensions refer to the largest length, width and height dimensions of the container, including permanent attachments. It is the main parameter that determines whether the container can be reloaded between ships, chassis, freight cars, and railway vehicles. The transportation departments need to be familiar with and master the external dimensions of various containers.
Internal dimensions refer to the maximum length, width and height dimensions inside the container. The height is the distance from the bottom of the box to the bottom of the top of the box, the width is the distance between the two inner liners, and the length is the distance between the inner plate of the door and the inner wall of the end wall. It determines the internal volume of the container and the maximum size of the cargo in the container.
According to the size of the container, the loading volume, that is, the internal volume of the container, can be calculated and understood by the material department or the packing person. Containers of the same specification have slightly different contents due to different structures and manufacturing materials.
Let's take a look at the common types of containers, including its internal volume, distribution gross weight, and volume comparison, as follows:
