Container shipping is the type of shipping where goods are loaded into ocean freight containers of various standard sizes namely 20 foot (6.09 m), 40 foot (12.18 m) and 45 foot (13.7 m) transported and unloaded at destination. Also 48 foot (14.6 m), and 53 foot (16.15 m) are used mostly for ground and inland transportation of goods. The ocean containers of the mentioned sizes come in form of Dry Van (DV), High cube container (HC), Open top Containers in gauge and out of Gauge (OT), Reefer containers (RF) and Flat Rack Containers (FR).
The two most commonly used container sizes today, are namely 20-foot and 40-foot. The 20- foot container called 20 FT Equivalent Unit (TEU) has become the industry standard reference consequently cargo volume and vessel capacity is measured in TEU. The 40 FT container, which is 2 TEU – became known as the Forty-foot Equivalent Unit (FEU) and is the most frequently used today.
