Which Size of Shipping Container Will Work Best for Me?

20ft and 40ft containers are the two types of containers that are most traditionally used when it comes to international shipments.

How Big is a 20ft Container?

A 20ft container has the ability to store the contents of a three-bedroom home, or about the size of an average garage.

How Big is a 40ft Container?

A 40ft container affords you double the space of a 20ft container with just a fraction of the expense. It is good value for money for customers with large cargos.

The Difference Between FCL and LCL

A "Less Than Container Load" (LCL) is a system designed by us for persons with small cargo volumes to share a container.

A "Full Container Loads" (FCL) is a situation whereby a customer is using an entire container because his belongings exceed that of a one-bedroom apartment.
