A Brief History of the Shipping Container

Early 20th Century Shipping

Prior to the 1950's, loading a cargo ship was a laborious process where cargo was loaded piece by piece onto a ship. During the Korean War, the US military developed the "Container Express" box system to make transporting supplies simpler.  The term "Conex" comes from that system, and Conex is still synonymous with shipping containers to this day. There were also a large variety of different container systems in use prior to the 1950's, but each shipping container was still very different from company to company, and not easily interchangeable.

Containerization

Malcom McLean is often credited with "inventing" the shipping container, but that's a bit of a stretch. McLean was certainly the first to successfully commercialize container shipping, but definitely was not the first to come up with the idea. For instance the Bureau International des Containers (BIC) was founded in 1933, 23 years before McLean would shuttle a few dozen containers from Newark to Houston on a re-purposed World War II cargo ship in 1956.  Matson would soon follow, and began offering containerized freight services two years later.

Standardized Containers

Sealand (Malcom McLean's original container shipping company, now owned by Maersk) had 33' and 35' shipping containers.  Matson's shipping containers were 24' long. In the late 1960's the International Organization for Standardization (commonly referred to as ISO) established standards for shipping container dimensions via ISO 668. Due to the standards set forth by the ISO, containers are now measured in TEU's (twenty-foot equivalent units).  Today there are over 34,000,000 TEU in circulation (or roughly 20,000,000 shipping containers).

SAFE HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS

A sticker or plate to identify such things as High Cube containers, hazardous cargo, or other such labels.  High Cube containers will also have yellow decals at the top of the frame on each end, to make the extended height more noticable.

CSC PLATE

The Convention for Safe Containers (CSC) Plate includes information on the date and location of manufacture, as well as other specifications.  Learn more about the Convention for Safe Containers on the International Maritime Organization's website.

LOCKING RODS & HANDLES

Metal rods, bolted to the exterior of the container door and frame, that seal the door tightly when twisted closed and clasped. A broken or bent locking rod can mean that a door won't seal properly.  We guarantee doors will seal on every container we sell.

CONTAINER ID NUMBER

Each container has a unique ID, with the first three letters representing the owner (registered with the Bureau International des Containers "BIC"), followed by a "U" and then six more digits.  The 7th number is a "check digit" used by calculating the value of each letter and number in the ID. Check your check digit with BIC.

SIZE & CAPACITY SPECS

To ensure safe handling, and stacking on ships, containers should not be loaded heavier than the weight specifications listed on the door and CSC plate.  Please note, however, that local shipping weight regulations may be much lower than the maximum payload of the container.

DOOR GASKET

Each of the cargo doors is fully surrounded by a rubber gasket.  The gasket allows the steel doors to be shut tightly to prevent both weather getting into the the container and cargo from spilling out if the freight shifts or pallets fail during transport. Good gaskets are essential to a container being wind/water tight.

How Do Steel Storage Containers Compare to PODS?

Compare Western Container Sales to PODS

The largest nationwide portable storage company is PODS (Portable On Demand Storage). While both PODS and Western Container Sales offer nationwide portable storage rentals, there are some key differences... Primarily that PODS' containers are smaller, lighter units that are made from fiberglass, aluminum and plastic, and designed to be moved while loaded.  Western Container Sales rentals are made from re-purposed used shipping conatiners (all steel construction, with wood floors over steel cross members).

PODS Will Move Loaded Containers, We Won't...

While Western Container Sales offers steel storage containers in sizes up to 40' in length, PODS offers smaller, 8', 12' and 16' storage units with aluminum and plastic exteriors. Steel shipping containers are difficult to load/unload without the heavy equipment found at ports and depots, but PODS units are small enough to be easily managed with light duty lifts.

Western Container Sales does not move loaded units, so if you need your container moved after it's loaded PODS or similar companies might be a better option. However, if you need storage at your location we offer larger, all steel containers. Our cost per square foot is almost always lower, as well.
