Shipping Container Types

There are many container types which, for easy understanding, can be divided into standard and non-standard containers.

Non-standard containers may be similar to ISO containers but may not be intermodal worldwide and their operation could require special arrangement.

Here, we only consider the types of ISO containers which, according to ISO 6346 (1995) consist of several distinctive categories as follows:

1. General purpose containers 
2. Bulk container 
3. Named cargo containers (Livestock container, Automobile containers..) 
4. Thermal containers 
5. Open-top containers 
6. Platform containers 
7. Tank containers 

Below are illustrating photos of those container kinds
