The 20-foot and 40-foot containers we usually see are called Dry Cargo Containers (Dry Cargo Containers), also called general cargo containers, and some people call them cargo containers. This kind of container is used to transport general cargo that does not need to be temperature controlled. It has a wide range of use. There are two commonly used 20-foot and 40-foot containers. There is also a 40-foot container that is heightened and is also a dry cargo container. The structural feature of this kind of container is that it is often closed. Generally, a box door is provided on one end or side, and a certain device for reinforcing the goods is installed in the box.

Appropriate packaging is required for the loaded goods in order to make full use of the container's capacity.
