Containerization

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
