Sale of containers

You need shipper’s own containers or want to buy a container for shipment and/or storage? We would gladly organise you the respectively suitable containers to meet your needs. Among other things, attention must be paid to whether or not you plan transport by sea with the purchased container because these containers require an inspection plate to be accepted by a shipping company for loading. Furthermore, we offer office, construction site and sanitary containers.

Container types and general information

Sea freight containers are available in various dimensions and models. Depending on the material of the container walls (aluminium / steel), the dimensions can vary by a few centimetres. Among other things, when planning container stowage, it must be observed that door and roof openings are smaller than the rest of the container.
