Container shipping is a method of transporting products in large, standardized containers. It allows for easy handling and transfer between transport modes such as ships, trains and trucks.

The cost of shipping a 40-foot container varies depending on your products’ destination, quantity, size and sometimes, weight. Contact a freight forwarder, like Hillebrand Gori, for a personalized quote.

The timeline for shipping a container varies depending on the origin and destination of your shipment. Transit times can vary based on weather, customs delays and peak shipping seasons.

The specific documents needed for container shipping vary based on the type of product and destination country. However, some common documents include the bill of lading, certificate of origin, commercial invoice and packing list. Work with a freight forwarder who can help you obtain all necessary documentation for your shipment.
