ISO shipping containers, milvans, and conex boxes are built to withstand the most extreme weather conditions and are durable enough to carry large loads of goods. These containers are manufactured to meet international standards and modular sizes. They can be moved over water via ships as well as railroads and highways. Given the durability and strength of these containers they can even be stacked on top of one another. However beneficial these containers may be the cost of shipping empty containers back to major exporters to the U.S. is so high they are quickly collecting and sitting unused at many ports around the U.S. This abundance of unused ISO Shipping containers, milvans, and connex boxes makes them ideal for recycling and a second life. 

The most common ISO Shipping container, conex box, or milvan as they are called are 20'0" or 40'0" long; 8'0" wide and 8'6" tall. A taller type called the "high cube" container is available at 9'6" tall. Extended containers are also available in 45', and 53', lengths but are in limited availability given their rarity.These shipping containers are built using a steel tube frame and corrugated 16 guage corten steel, which makes them not only very durable but also strong enough to hold up well in every climate. The floors in these conex container and milvans are built from a very strong and durable 1 1/8" thick marine grade plywood that is meant to last a very very long time. The standardized nature of the materials shipping containers are built from makes these units pretty much weather tight, immune to mold, rodents, bugs and vandalism.

DropBox Inc. ISO Shipping Container Sizes and Weight

Posted on Wed, Sep 11, 2013 @ 14:09 PM

milvan, DropBox Inc., ISO Shipping container, connex container, Shipping containerOne of the most frequently asked questions we receive from our customers is, "what size or weight are ISO shipping containers, milvan, and connex containers?" 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.
