Standard Container

They’re usually made of steel or aluminum. The aluminum containers have a slightly higher payload. In general, these containers are airtight and water-resistant, preventing damage from the outside.

Standard containers can carry most types of dry cargo such as boxes, pallets, sacks, barrels, etc. They can be customized on the inside to carry a specific type of goods. For instance, hangers can be fit inside to carry clothes that could be directly transported to the store. Since standard containers are basic and easily-available, they are not expensive
