Standard container

“DRY CARGO” CONTAINER (DCC)

“HIGH CUBE” CONTAINER

Standard containers (SPC) are also known as general purpose containers. They are closed containers, i.e. they are closed on all sides. A distinction may be drawn between the following types of standard container:

  • Standard containers with doors at one or both end(s).
  • Standard containers with doors at one or both end(s) and doors over the entire length of one or both sides.
  • Standard containers with doors at one or both end(s) and doors on one or both sides.

In addition, the various types of standard container also differ in dimensions and weight, resulting in a wide range of standard containers.

Standard containers are mainly used as 20′ and 40′ containers. Containers with smaller dimensions are very seldom used. Indeed, the trend is towards even longer dimensions, e.g. 45′.

High cube containers are similar in structure to standard containers, but taller. In contrast to standard containers, which have a maximum height of 2591 mm (8’6″), high cube containers are 2896 mm (9’6″) tall. High cube containers are for the most part 40′ long, but are sometimes made as 45′ containers.
