With eight shipping container sizes available for ocean freight and 15 shipping container sizes available for air freight, plus options like refrigeration, open-top, cubes, flat racks and more, there are many choices at the ready to help optimize your upcoming cargo shipment.

Global Freight Solutions has gathered the precise interior dimensions of each container, the door opening width and height, maximum capacity by both volume and weight and even what each shipping container weighs when empty (tare weight.) If that were not enough, we’ve even added a printable graphic for each container size, complete with full dimensions in both the standard and metric system available below.

There are advantages to each size and mode of container transport. Depending on your unique needs, a GFS shipping expert can walk you through the best choices for your upcoming shipment based on destination, the item(s) being shipped, security requirements, budgetary specifications and any critical timing perquisites.
