Before the container appeared, people had been loading goods directly on trucks or ships, which brought about a series of inconveniences, so the container came into being in the hands of an American driver. Today, almost all ports and freight stations can see it, and it can be said that the whole world is using it. How do people distinguish between containers and how to set standards for containers?
The container is a certain strength, stiffness and certain specifications, large cargo containers for cargo turnover, using this product can directly transport goods to the consignee's warehouse, not on the way to unload the goods, which is convenient for many. Because of the widespread use of containers in the world today, people are divided into four categories according to international standards, national standards, regional standards and company standards.
1, international standard container
International standard container is developed by the international organization for Standardization (ISO) the current international standard container has a total of 13, their width is 2438mm but its length is four, respectively (12192mm, 9125mm, 6058mm, 2991mm), height also has three (2896mm, 2591mm, 2438mm).
2. Container of national standard
Container of national standard is the standard made by every country according to the situation of our country, so each country is different. According to the current external dimensions and rated weight of our country, the external dimension, limit deviation and rated weight of the container are determined.
3, regional standard container
Taking the national standard as an example, it is also the standard for the regional organizations to formulate containers according to the actual conditions of their own generation. But these containers are only used in these areas, such as containers built according to the container standards set by the European Union for the International Railway Union (VIC).
4, company standard container
The standards established by the companies of this type of container ships in accordance with the standards of their own carriers. But it can only be applied to the range of transportation of such companies.
Of course, in addition to the four class, the world also spread a lot of non-standard containers, this is because the current economic development more and more prosperous, the transportation industry is becoming more and more prosperous, so the container is becoming more and more popular.
