International container shipping

International container shipping is arangen shipping goods in a marine container. Marine containers are standardized. Their lenght vary, but mostly used containers are – 20′, 40′ or 45′ feet.

The haulage by full containers also means that all the goods in the container are mentioned a single consignment note (Bill of lading) and belong to one party. And it doesn’t matter how many cargo is loaded into the container. Freight payment is made per full container.

In general containerization increases by 3- 4 percent annually, allows goods to be transported to anyplace in the world. Now it is possible pick up cargo from shippers warehouse even next day after booking is made. Transit times vary from weeks to several month, and it depends on route, container type, shipping line or delivery methood.
