Shipping Container Sizes

Shipping containers come in three standard sizes

The following are the internal and external dimensions for each type of shipping container. Please note that container dimensions may vary slightly depending on the factory origin. Below specifications should be used as a guide, but the external dimensions will always remain the same.

If your items have unusual dimensions or are exceptionally bulky, don’t despair! We also provide specialty shipping containers, with different kinds of access, to fit your over-height or over-width cargo.
