Key Information for New 20ft Containers
All 20ft x 8ft x 8ft 6 inch new ‘one-trip’ containers are manufactured in China; they then have one cargo trip over to the UK before being re-sold. This explains the term ‘one-trip’ which is often used to describe ‘new’ condition containers.
Unless otherwise stated all standard 20ft containers are 20ft long, 8ft wide and 8ft 6inches tall externally.
Our 20ft One Trip Shipping Containers are typically less than 6 months old when re-sold, they have only been used once. These units are also referred to as ’20ft One Trip Shipping Containers’ or ’20ft New Containers’.
If they’re not resold as new one trip shipping containers these units are expected to operate for several years on shipping lines, used to deliver goods internationally. Due to this harsh sea environment, they are manufactured to a high standard, using good quality materials to ensure they are 100% wind and watertight, and protect their cargo.
If you require your new shipping container for transporting goods overseas, the initial CSC certification lasts for 5 years from the date of manufacture. This date is clearly stated on the CSC plate which is located on the double doors of the unit. The CSC certification can be updated after this initial 5-year period.
20ft Container Construction
New units are constructed using high-quality cor-ten steel which is designed to stand up to the harsh rigours of sea conditions, they are painted in one of several standard shipping line colours.
Cor-ten steel is a steel alloy originally developed to not require painting; ’cor‘ a shortened way of writing corrosion resistant and ‘ten’ short for tensile strength. For more information on corten steel check out this wikipedia article.
Internal flooring formed from 27mm hardwood.
The external paint colour is usually green or blue, but this may vary.

New 20ft Container Security
All our 20ft ‘One Trip’ Shipping Containers are fitted with a high security lock box on the double doors as standard (a metal box is welded onto the double doors to enclose a padlock, thus making it less tamper proof). Also, you can fit additional locks to the container, through the locking bars for extra security.
Our containers can also be supplied with a high-security padlock – see our accessories range here – or you can add one yourself if you prefer.
Shipping Container Delivery
