General Purpose Shipping Containers

General-purpose shipping containers are the most well-known and well-recognised containers that are in use today. They are used to transport goods and cargo by sea and land. They are robust, watertight, and incredibly durable. As this is the most used shipping container transport, it is adopted for many industries, such as retail and industrial transport.

When it comes to heavy haulage transport, DG or dangerous goods containers may be needed. Dangerous goods are substances that, when transported, are a risk to health, safety, property or the environment. Hazardous materials are often subject to chemical regulations. This means that specialised shipping containers must be used for the product’s safety, the staff, the environment and the surrounding land. Whether you need particular mining transport or you require a DG container, Team Transport and Logistics can walk through your needs and get the job done.




Refrigerated Shipping Containers

A refrigerated shipping container, sometimes called a reefer, is an intermodal container used in freight transport. Refrigerated containers are capable of refrigeration to transport temperature-sensitive and perishable cargo, such as fruits, vegetables, meat and other food-grade items.

Insulated and Thermal Containers

An insulated or thermal shipping container is used to maintain the initial temperature and protect the container’s interior from exterior conditions. These are used for climate-controlled storage and keeping goods cold, frozen, or at a specific temperature during long-distance shipping. Insulated containers are often used in the retail market or for food and beauty supplies.
