Shipping ContainersIf you are in the market for a shipping container or have already acquired a shipping container, it is helpful to understand where shipping containers come from.

Whether a new “one-trip” container or a used container, shipping containers start their life in Asia and are shipped by boat to the United States. Excess shipping containers arrive in U.S. ports and are stored in terminals and depots adjacent to the ports.

 

PortsSince shipping containers in the U.S. are sourced from ports, it is helpful to know which ports in the U.S. have the largest volumes of shipping traffic. This important as the volume of shipping traffic affects the both the pricing and availability of shipping containers in your area.
