Hmmmmm, if you put it that way, yes some of the shipping lines used to do this as a means of quick identification.. Leasing companies also used to do it.. That 6 digit number known as Registration # have some specific series to identify which was 20′ and which was 40′.. Of course each container operator will have their own code so its not standard.. For example TRITON used to have all their 40′ containers starting with the number 4 and all their 20′ containers starting with the number 2..

Not sure if it is still the case..
