The Rise of Shipping Containers

Ever wondered exactly where shipping containers come from? We’re here to lay it out for you.

1956 saw the creation of the first successful shipping container business. They are now part of the most adopted industry standards on the globe. Shipping containers form the backbone of modern international trade.

Their creation supported a system of ‘intermodalism’. This system had items remain in the same container throughout their shipping journey. Trains, trucks and ships could transport containers between them. This made shipping more efficient. But the rise of one trip shipping containers also has consequences. Many containers now spend more than half their 15 year lifespan unused.

Why take precautions with flammable materials?

Precautions

Shipping containers almost completely seal shut. So it can be dangerous to store equipment that uses flammable materials. This includes gas, or solvents and other chemicals. These materials can release vapours which accumulate in the container.

This increases the potential for fire as well as being a health risk.

  • Flammable Materials
    Shipping containers almost completely seal shut, so it can be dangerous to store equipment that uses flammable materials. This includes gas, or solvents and other chemicals.

  • Engines
    Ensure that the fuel tanks are completely empty as even small amounts of gasoline can pose risks. We advise you air out your unit at regular intervals.

Condensation

We advise against the storage of wet and damp items as these may cause condensation.

There are many easy ways to prevent excessive condensation and the damage it can cause:

  • Pallets to prevent damp
    Dampness can sometimes reach your items through the flooring of containers. Using pallets will keep your items elevated and stop damp from reaching them. Though you need to pay attention to the type of wood, as some varieties or newer wood can contain a lot of moisture.

  • Desic-can’t, or desic-can?
    Desiccants are also effective in protecting your items from water damage. They absorb excess water from the air. This reduces the buildup of moisture that leads to condensation.
