Ocean Freight Containers

The use of ocean freight containers has revolutionized ocean shipping as well as intermodal (ocean, rail, truck) transport worldwide. As of 2007, more than 90 percent of international, non-bulk cargo is shipped in ocean freight containers. The benefits of containerization are many, but topping the list are decreased handling costs, speed of transport, reduced damage to goods shipped, and greater security.
