When shipping goods from A to B it is important to fully understand the ISO container dimensions used for standard and open top containers. Transporting your goods from A to B safely and securely, is what John Pipe International have been successfully doing for over 60 years. Whether its’ air, land, sea or specialist freight, you’re guaranteed to find the right service here. Read through this article to see our sizing options and to understand the ISO container dimensions we use.

So – you know the methods of transportation service John Pipe International uses to transit your goods, but how about the packaging of the goods itself?

To put it simply, we offer tailor-made packing solutions based on regulatory ISO container dimensions that are carefully designed and constructed to uniquely fit your requirements and specifications. Just as we are as a company ‘big enough to cope, small enough to care’ – no package is too big or too small for us to carefully package your goods for safety during transit.

Below is a standard guide on our ISO container dimensions and sizes – but don’t forget that our services are not limited to this, we can tailor any size, for any package.

Standard Container Dimensions By Type

Container sizes can come in a variety of sizes, with 20’ and 40’ being the most common standard container sizes, with internal widths of 7’9” as standard, and in heights of 7’10” – a high cube will have an additional foot to be 8’10”. 

Similarly, our Open Top & Flat Rack containers offer these same standard width sizes, with a unique lid design.

We Know You’re not all the Same.

Whether you are a small, independent company with small, lightweight exports, or you are a large scale global brand with exports that require extra details – we’ve got it covered.

That’s why our packing service isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. Our case making services allow the design to be bespoke to your product, mode of transport and budget. Every wooden case is made-to-measure, expertly designed for your shipment. While we never take a risk with safety, we’ll always be on hand to give advice about the best solution for your business.

What is Case Making?

It is the ultimate protection.

When it comes to your goods, our aim is to make export packing and freight forwarding as simple as possible, so we offer all of the services you’ll need under one roof.

While foil-wrapping is a fantastic way to prevent moisture getting to your goods, an exterior packing solution offers a further defence against the elements. Our cases ensure your export arrives at its destination safely, so you can have a peace of mind guarantee when it comes to your logistics.
