Sea Cargo Container Definition
A sea cargo container is any maritime container that is used to transport cargo by sea, land, or rail. It is a special container because it has supplementary operational and weight modifications and allowances that ensures that it can be used to transport goods through land, rail, or sea. Even though containerization has existed for a while now, and has been a mainstay in freight shipment, sea cargo containers are still relatively new.
What Makes Sea Cargo Containers Unique?
Sea cargo containers, based on their make, significantly reduce transit times and cut down on costs. This is because they facilitate intermodal shipment where they can be used in land, rail, and sea. For a container that cannot be transported through sea, it may take more time to reach the final destination. Sea Cargo Containers address this issue.
This characteristic means that while every sea container is a shipping container, not all shipping containers can be categorized as sea containers. Some are land-based because they do not meet the required expectation and specifications for sea cargo transport. The latter are also designed to meet full marine container standards. They are also corrosion-resistant as they are made using high-quality steel.
What Can Be Transported Using Sea Cargo Containers?
Sea Cargo Containers can be used to transport bulk cargo such as grains and ore and other lighter goods such as sugar, salt, or cement. These containers are well-designed, meeting the highest ISO specifications. They are also used to transport clothing bales, toys, mobile phones, and computers.
The design of sea cargo containers ensures that the goods being transported are protected from damage from extreme temperature, moisture, and other adverse weather conditions.
