Shipping Containers are essentially big metal boxes used to move freight around the globe. Around 85% of the goods imported into the UK arrive in shipping containers. They have been specifically designed to be very strong and durable, as well as to keep their contents clean, dry and secure. For these reasons they also make excellent storage containers (inside or outside use) or the starting point for conversion for a wide variety of other uses. They are also the obvious choice if you wish to export a large volume of goods abroad yourself!
