Container Transport – Why is Important to Choose ISO Sizing?
ISO sizing of containerised transport has revolutionised the shipping industry making it faster and easier to ship items all around the world. There are a range of container unit sizings – containers can be anywhere from 10 foot to 48 foot. However, it is important that you choose a container that conforms to ISO sizing.
Why ISO Sizing is Important for Container Transport
ISO sizing is important for container transport for a couple of different reasons:
- These containers can be offloaded faster
- They can be stacked on top of each other safely
- You can transport easily on ship, rail or road
- Using standardised sizes is cheaper for you to transport
- Many container transport companies will only move ISO size containers
- ISO containers must comply with sizing and quality standards
ISO stands for the International Standards Organisation – the organisation sets out a number of conditions which a unit must comply with. Among these requirements are that the container conforms to a standard size within a few different sizing choices, these being 10 foot, 20 foot and 40 foot.
Additionally, the container needs to demonstrate that it has been built to ISO quality, strength and durability standards. So whether you want to use the container for transporting items or storing items for your business or personal use, having an ISO container is a good idea.
With an ISO container you can be confident that it is high quality, safe, secure and will last you for a long time. Container transport is also made much more straightforward when the dimensions of the container are ISO approved.
