One-trip containers are manufactured overseas; mainly in Asia and are shipped with a single container cargo load. Once the container reaches its destination they are often available for sale. These containers are an excellent choice because they have not spent time on the ocean or in container depots/terminals. One-trip containers are available worldwide in most port locations. We offer one-trip containers in various sizes and door configurations from 10ft to 40ft in length with doors on one or both ends.

The 40ft ISO High Cube Container is an excellent value for the size. The difference between a standard height and high cube is strictly in the height of the container. 40ft High Cube Containers are 9’6″ Tall vs. the 8’6″ height of the standard ISO container. The additional height will increase the cargo capacity of the container by roughly 12% bringing the cubic capacity of the 40ft high cube container to 2,694 cu. ft. 40ft high cube cargo boxes are manufactured to meet ISO Specifications and feature security lock boxes on the cargo doors. We have these units in stock and ready to deliver.

The 40-foot high cube container is 1 ft. taller in height compared to standard-sized shipping containers. They are designed to accommodate those needing to store or transport larger oversized items that don’t fit inside standard-height containers.

A new 40ft shipping container will ensure quality and longevity, while a used container will save you money.

For cargo to be transported internationally, the container must have a valid CSC (Container Safety Convention) plate, which verifies that safety inspections have been performed. Our ‘New’ grade containers ensure CSC approval, as well as clean interiors.

While our ‘B’ grade containers may have marked interiors & some exterior corrosion, they remain windtight & watertight.

For less critical applications, you may save costs with a ‘C’ grade container, which will show more advanced corrosion.
