Ocean Freight Forwarding today is predominantly gripped by the containerization boom across the globe. This has proved to be a convenient & cost effective option of moving cargo to the bulk movement that dominated the yester years. Containers are standard in length & width, into which cargo is stuffed & the container is then loaded on the ships. Container sizes are predominantly of two sizes namely 20' L x 8' W x 8.5' H also referred to as a "Twenty Footer" & 40' L x 8' W x 8.5' H also referred to as a "Forty Footer". There are other minor variants to this such as a "High Cube" which is one foot taller & a "Forty Five Footer" which is 45' in length. While the standard container is made of steel, you also get them made of aluminium. There are containers with no top (called Open Top), or even with no sides (called Flat Racks) to suit the accommodation of oversized cargo. There are also special refrigerated containers to transport sensitive & perishable cargo including food stuffs, Photo sensitive material such as film & others.
