40ft IS DOUBLE THE SIZE OF THE 20FT CONTAINER AND IS THE SECOND MOST POPULAR CONTAINER FOR SHIPPING – AFTER ITS SMALLER COUNTERPART.

Its large size enables the container to carry more cargo making it very economical for shipping large quantities of goods. It offers the convenience of two 20ft containers minus the inconveniences and expenses of having to transport two separate units.

Other than shipping, 40ft containers can be repurposed for a variety of uses. They can be modified for use in industries such as housing, hotel and leisure, mining, retail, construction and more.
