Various cargo and packing types in containers

Most of you might have heard of the various cargo and packing types in containers, but a lot of the people who have been dealing with exports and imports might have never seen what the inside of a container looks like (whether empty or full) or the cargoes packed in it..

Hence i thought it might help to show a few images of the same.. Although it is not a complete list/photos by any means, i think it covers a lot of the cargo packing types and should help afore mentioned people to get an idea..

If anyone has any other interesting or unusual cargoes/packing types packed in containers, please do let me know and i will add them to the blog..

Some of the images are courtesy of some good people at Deugro, Access Freight, Bridge Shipping.. Thanks guys..

    Interesting image gallery. I look forward to a sequel showing more unusual cargoes, including contraband goods stuffed in containers and seized by customs.
