Shipping Container Dimensions
Shipping containers are most commonly built in 20’ and 40’ lengths since these sizes are the most economical. However, units are available in lengths from 10’ up to 53’ in length. If you are looking to buy shipping containers and the standard lengths do not suit your needs, we’d be happy to source equipment best suited to your needs.

We also have an extensive library of service part manuals and technical drawings for many types of containers. Please contact us and we’ll do our best to get you the information you need.

**Please note: weights and measurements differ slightly from manufacture to manufacture.
