Shipping container movements are something Sussex Transport do really well – we do lots of movements on a daily basis. We have the HIAB and flatbed capacity to move shipping containers / cabins at your request… including double stacking and adding the staircases where necessary.

All of our drivers and operators are skilled, regularly trained and refreshed in necessary health and safety standards and required qualifications.

Here are some little known facts about shipping containers!…

1.            There are currently over 17 million shipping containers in circulation globally

2.            The first metal shipping container was invented by Malcolm McLean in 1956

3.            Approximately 97% of all shipping containers are manufactured in China. This is due to a lower labour rate in the country and that much of the world’s products are produced in China.

4.            Approximately 675 shipping containers are lost at sea every single year!!

5.            It is estimated that there were more than 530 million containers in the world in 2010.

6.            If shipping containers are taken care of with regular maintenance, they can last for a total of 20 years.

7.            95% of the world’s cargo moves by ship. Due to higher costs, it still makes more financial sense to transport goods in high volume ships.

8.            A standard container can hold around 3,500 shoe boxes!
