Shipping and storage container dimensions

Standard shipping container dimensions (L x B x H) are:

 

ISO standard 20' x 8' x 8'6" - 40' x 8' x 8'6" - High Cube 40' x 8' x 9'6" - These dimensions are the same irrespective of the container type.

 

Storage containers come with the same and alternative dimensions including:

 

6', 8', 10' and between 10' and 40' long, 5' to 8' wide and between 6' 4" and 9'6" high

 

 

 
ISO/CSC Shipping and storage containers
Length: Almost all containers are 20' or 40' (6m/12m) with very few 10' (3m), 30' (9m) and 45' (13.6m)
Width: 8' (2.45m) is standard though in Europe there are a few that are pallet width = 2.50m
Height: Standard 8'6" (2.59m) and High Cube 9'6" (2.90m) are normal
 
Storage containers (normally without CSC)
There are smaller sizes than 10' (3m) and these typically have lower heights and widths than ISO standard dimensions
There are also non-ISO lengths between 10' and 40' featuring ISO standard heights/widths
