About Container Shipping
Container shipping is the most commonly used method for shipping goods internationally. The process requires cargo to be packed in large metal boxes called containers. Those containers are then loaded onto a vessel that transports them to the destination. The containers are then unloaded from the ship. You can pack a wide variety of goods into containers. If your cargo is large in size or number, then you may need an entire container for your shipment. However, smaller shipments can benefit from container consolidation that combines multiple shipments together to fill a single container. This is common with car shipping containers, where more than one vehicle gets loaded into a single container.
