20 Feet Container for Sale & Rent

Product Description

A 20 feet container is a type of container with dimensions in meters: length of 20 feet or 6.10 meters, width of 8 feet or 2.44 meters, and height of 8 feet 6 inches or 2.59 meters.

The size of a 20 feet container is a common standard, along with the 40 feet container, which applies to all types of containers, whether for shipping or modifications.

Types of 20 feet containers include General Purpose, High Cube, Side Opening, Pallet Wide, Duocon Double Door, Bulker, Refrigerated, Offshore DNV, Half Height Open Top, and Flat Rack.

Apart from the 20 feet and 40 feet sizes, there are also other sizes like 10 feet and 45 feet. However, the demand for 10 feet and 45 feet containers is not as high as for the 20 feet and 40 feet sizes.

The main difference between a 20 feet and a 40 feet container lies in their length, while the width and height remain the same.

The same goes for the 20 feet High Cube container. The difference lies in the length, while the width and height remain the same.

How to Calculate the Volume of 20 Feet Container

Calculating the volume of a container helps you determine how much cargo can fit inside the container for distribution.

There are several online tools that assist you in calculating the volume of a 20-foot container, such as CBM Calculator and Online Container Loading & Stuffing Calculator.

Here’s how you can use them:

  • Determine the dimensions of the cargo you intend to ship. For example, let’s say you plan to send packaged tea in boxes with dimensions of 14 x 5 x 6 cm and a weight of 200 grams.
  • Open the CBM Calculator in your web browser.
  • Select “cubic meter” and enter the dimensions of the tea boxes in the respective fields, such as Length: 14 cm, Width: 5 cm, and Height: 6 cm. Input the Gross Weight as 200 grams.
  • Then, enter all the calculation components, and the result will show the quantity of tea boxes (without pallets) that can fit into a 20-foot container, which in this case is 78,872 boxes of tea.
