General Information on International Container Transportation of Goods by Sea.
Transportation by sea is one of the most cost-effective ways of delivery. The low cost of international sea freight is conditioned by exceptionally high capacity of modern vessels, which makes it possible to transport large volumes of shipments in containers. Any cargo can be loaded in a container from bulk construction materials to vehicles, special purpose machinery and large-size equipment. The measurement unit for the size of containers used today for transportation by sea is foot. The main types of containers are:
• twenty-foot containers designed to carry heavy cargos;
• forty-foot containers that are well suited for the transportation of bulky but light shipments;
• refrigerated. Such containers are used in container transportation by sea if it is necessary to comply with certain temperature requirements;
• containers without a hard top, allowing top loading;
• open spaces for transportation by sea of oversized cargo;
• tank containers used to transport liquids and gases.
