Shipping Container Dimensions

 

Shipping Container Dimensions

When selecting a shipping container, the most important consideration is determining the shipping container size you require. SEA Containers offers one of the largest ranges of shipping containers sizes in New Zealand, so whatever your requirements, we can supply the right container for the job.

Shipping containers come in many sizes with the most common standard shipping container dimensions being 40, 20 and 10 feet in length. However, shipping container sizes and dimensions can vary drastically. There are two common shipping container heights; general purpose or high cube, and pallet width containers are also available to order.

If you require shipping container dimensions for our specialist equipment such as opentop containers, flatracks or our opensider containers, please contact the team who can easily provide the information you require.
