Container Shipping- What You Need to Know?

Container shipping is a method of transporting goods in standardized containers that are specifically designed for easy handling and transportation. These containers come in various sizes and are made from durable materials such as steel. The most common container sizes are 20 feet (often referred to as a TEU or Twenty-Foot Equivalent Unit) and 40 feet. Container shipping is a key component of international trade and commerce, facilitating the movement of goods between countries and continents.

Our Container Shipping Involves Several Key Steps


Goods are loaded into containers at the point of origin. Depending on the nature of the cargo, it may be necessary to use special packaging or secure items within the container to prevent damage during transit.


Once loaded, the container is sealed to ensure the security of the cargo. Seals are typically applied to the container doors and are only removed upon arrival at the destination.


Sealed containers are then transported via various modes of transport, including ships, trains, and trucks. Containers can be transferred between different modes of transport at ports and terminals, where they are loaded onto vessels for ocean transport or trucks or trains for inland transportation.

Unloading and Distribution

Upon arrival at the destination port, containers are unloaded from the vessel and either stored at the port or transported to their final destination by truck or train. At the final destination, containers are unloaded, and the goods are distributed to their respective recipients.
