Steel Containers

Use steel containers as a permanent or temporary solution

Steel containers make excellent storage containers because they are designed to protect expensive trade goods from the extreme conditions of trans-oceanic shipping.

Containers are increasingly set to replace traditional stowage in holds. Containerization of cargoes is becoming ever more widespread worldwide and almost all products are now transported by container. However, this does not mean that the risks which arise during transport are consequently a thing of the past. The cargoes in containers are still exposed to climatic, biological and chemical stresses, such that the causes of losses which previously occurred in the hold still come about with container transport. If transport is to pass off without loss, selection of a suitable container type is fundamental. However, disparities in the flow of goods mean that suitable containers are not always available, so increasing the significance of cargo care during transport. The following headings contain detailed information about containers.

Unlike a shed or garage, our storage containers' steel construction and watertight door gaskets make them nearly impervious to moisture penetration, vermin infestation, rot, decay, and excess humidity. For added protection from extreme heat or cold, we also carry a full line of insulated and refrigerated containers

Each container can be customized to meet your unique needs—whether you require extra security, unique paint jobs, or more advanced features like roll up doors for easy access.
