20ft Dry Cargo Container



20ft DC Container
Standard 20ft dry cargo containers are manufactured with one set of double doors positioned at one end of the container.

Dry storage containers are the most commonly used type of shipping container and the 20ft dc container is suitable for most cargoes, including agricultural products, industrial equipment, machinery, automotive parts and consumer appliances – any non-perishable cargo that does not require temperature control. 20ft dc containers are ideal for transport of weighty goods rather than voluminous cargo.

20ft dry cargo containers are also ideal for storage and are a very cost-effective solution when additional space is required. Built to last, these containers are robust and highly secure.
