Shipping Container Sizing | BIC BoxTech
The standardisation of containers and the adoption of the ISO specification is to ensure that all equipment handlers, chassis, rail cars, and slot spaces on vessels will accommodate all containers.
There are two main International Standards which are set to regulate container size, weights and dimensions. It covers containers which are suitable for international exchange and for conveyance by road, rail and sea, including interchange between these forms of transport.
While the height may vary slightly, the width of each container size type should always measure 8ft. These containers can be used across different modes of transport without requiring unloading and reloading of cargo. To view the full list, download the file template from the sign-up page.
An intermodal container is a large standardised shipping container, designed and built for intermodal freight transport. For more details and links to other pages, please see the container information page. Bureau International des Containers et du Transport Intermodal.

ISO containers typically measure 20ft or 40ft in length and 8ft6 in height. Extra tall shipping containers, known as high-cube containers, measure 40ft or 45ft in length and 9ft6 in height.
It specifies the associated ratings and where appropriate, the minimum internal and door opening dimensions for containers intended for intercontinental traffic. It also covers certain specific purpose types, such as closed, vented, ventilated or open top containers. To help avoid such issues, all shipping containers must conform to international standards. Both of these legal standards must be fully understood and followed by container manufacturers and shippers in order to comply with safety standards.
Container size must be regulated to avoid potentially hazardous situations when stacking and handling. Typical International Organisation for Standardisation ISO shipping containers ido manufactured with identical size specification in terms of exterior height, exterior width, and exterior length.
