A “dry container” is another term for a general-purpose container. With a hard top, side walls, and floor, these shipping containers are completely enclosed, weatherproof, and secured. The most popular kind of container is the dry container, which is used to carry most types of typical freight. In addition, special modifications such as liner bags or flexi-tanks may be added to general purpose containers to transport certain kinds of liquid or dry bulk goods.
Temperature and ventilation sensitive, perishable goods such as meats, fruits, and vegetables are sent in Reefer shipping containers. The temperature and ventilation is controlled by external power in this container type. Reefers are available in 20′ and 40′ lengths.
A convertible roof on an open top shipping container can be totally removed. This is appropriate for cargo that is over-height and cannot be readily loaded via the entrance, such as tall equipment or other large or bulky completed products that need the use of a crane or rolling bridge for handling and loading. Open top containers come in 20′ and 40′ sizes, with lashing rings fitted on the upper and lower side rails and corner posts to secure freight.
The end walls of this basic storage container may be folded to create a platform. Because the end walls are solid enough to secure cargo, they are suitable for transporting enormous items like heavy gear, cars on tracks, large reels, and building materials. Some 40′ flat rack shipping containers can transport about 45 metric tons of goods!
