Any questions?

The differences concern both cubic capacity and weight that can be loaded. A standard 20ft container can hold up to about 21.500 kilos of goods (24.000 kilos tare weight included) and has an average capacity of 30 cbm; there also certified containers that can hold up to about 27.500 kilos of goods (30.480 kilos tare weight included). A 40 ft container can generally squeeze about 60 cbm worth of goods inside and you can load 26.500 kilos of goods (30.460 kilos tare weight included).

Among the factors to be taken into consideration are requested time for the loading; place of loading; type of goods; shipping company.

  • When a specific time for the loading is required, an additional charge could be added. Furthermore, whether the company exceeds the franchise, extra costs could be charged.
  • The place of loading must correspond to the one indicated in the booking. Modification, where necessary, might require extra costs.
  • There are costs related to the type of goods you are willing to ship. Dangerous or IMO goods, for example, require specific procedures and their cost is defined at the time of request.
  • Each company applies its own rates. Our experts identify the company which best suits your needs.
