In this weeks addition of the Shipping Container Modification Blog we are happy to provide a chart of milvan sizes and discuss custom containers that DropBox Inc. can build as well. In the 1950's commercial shipping operators and the military started developing "standard" size steel containers that would be easy to transport in mass quantities via ships, railroads, and roads.

Complete with standardized dimensions and lifting points including corner casting and fork lift pocket these new intermodal connex containers could easily be transported via the major transportation means at the time. In the late 60's to early 70's the standard dimensions were set forth by the International Maritime Organization and made milvans easier to transport because of the consistent dimensions and designs.

Typical containers have a set of double swing doors on one end of the ISO shipping container and are 8' 6" tall but can be built with doors on both ends and increased heights.

Here is a handy chart that lists the dimensions and weights of most commonly used connex containers in the market. These exact dimensions and weights may vary slightly depending on the manufacturer of the milvan

In addition to providing ISO shipping container modifications out of standard and high cube milvans, sea cans, and connex containers DropBox Inc. can also build custom sized units. Through the combination of multiple ISO containers, the shortening or lengthening of connex containers or via "stick built" custom dimensions DropBox Inc. can provide custom units of any size imaginable. Having built shipping container modifications of varying widths from the standard 8' up to 12' in a single unit DropBox Inc. has worked to exceed customers expectations and provide portable containerized solutions for companies around the world.
