Container trucks are commonly used freight transport vehicles in the form of a standardized and reusable steel container loaded on a truck. These boxes will travel on ships and then can be hauled by a truck, trailer or other transport without having to unload or reload the cargo it contains. Container lengths can vary from eight feet to nearly sixty feet but most commonly used are 40 feet and 20 feet length. Their heights can range from eight feet to a little over nine feet. There are millions of containers available across the world, suited to all types of cargo. These boxes can be fitted to a flatbed truck or trailer or to an lighter structure called skeleton trailer. The shipping container, always has to be secured by twist lock with the help of brackets and they may have barn doors or roll-up doors for easy access. The volume capacities of containers can range from anywhere between 33 cubic meters to 76 cubic meters or even more for the open top containers.
Trucks loaded with shipping containers can carry a variety of high value loads ranging from electronics to furniture to toys and household goods and a lot of other cargo. They may carry large boxes, barrels, sacks and other types of cargo as well.
