Containerization is the international shipping practice of storing a number of pieces of freight within a large container and transporting them as a single unit. This technique offers benefits to shippers, including less cargo handling, greater cargo protection and reduced shipping costs. Standardized containers, typically in 20- or 40-foot lengths, can be transported over long distances and transferred between transportation modes more efficiently.
Advantages of containerization include:
- Less handling of cargo
- More protection against pilferage
- Less exposure to elements
- Lower shipping costs
