It’s very important to ask What are shipping container dimensions? when purchasing or hiring a container. Shipping containers come in different sizes to suit all kinds of cargo. Importantly, at Shipping Containers Brisbane we follow the international standards. 

The length, width and height of a container constitute its dimensions.

Shipping container dimensions (in other words, measurements) are normally done in feet, as well as standard metric dimensions. Although there are both inside and outside dimensions, the outside dimensions are typically the ones that we provide and use.

Is there a standard answer to What are shipping container dimensions?

Standard shipping containers are 8ft (2.44m) wide and 8ft 6in (2.6m) high. Containers typically come in 3 different lengths: 10ft (3m), 20ft (6.06m), and 40ft (12.2m). But it doesn’t end there. There are other options available to you too.

At Shipping Containers Brisbane, we manufacture a wide range of specialised containers. These do not have the standard shipping container dimensions. For example, when compared to a standard container, a high cube container is a foot higher, measuring 9ft 6in (2.89m) in height.
