What are shipping containers made of?

Today's shipping containers are made from a self-healing or weathering metal called Corten Steel. It is designed to rust naturally in the areas where paint is removed from bumps, scratches as well as on contact points during transport. This rust creates a protective barrier from corrosion resulting in a longer lifespan and lower maintenance costs. 

How big are shipping containers?

Shipping containers come in a variety of heights, lengths and widths however the most common lengths for shipping containers are 20' and 40'  while the most common heights are 8'6" and 9'6".  8'6" containers are referred to as regular height containers and the taller 9'6" containers are called high cubes.
