Below are shipping container standard dimensions for various sizes and types of cargo container, including the reefer container, the open top container, and the dry freight container.
When making plans and reviewing shipping container dimensions, keep in mind that the high cube containers have higher ceilings. Many people forget to include the container height when calculating container dimensions and measurements. In order to get a standard 8' ceiling height, you will need to use high cubes. This would allow about 10" of space for electric, hvac, etc. while still leaving enough room for an 8' ceiling. 40' Dry Freight ContainerRatingsMaximum Gross Weight: 67,200 lbs.
