Question:  What is the difference between a 40ft High Cube and a 40ft Standard Height Container?
The primary difference between a 40ft Standard height container and a 40ft High Cube Container is the difference in height of exactly one foot. Another difference in the 40ft High Cube container versus the 40ft Standard container is the weight. Could some one please advise if I can fit 15 units each measuring 2050mm x 2050mm x 870mm in a standard 40ft container or would I require HQ ?
Can you give an an approximate % difference in cost to ship a HC container vs a standard height 40′? Based on your information, you would be able to load approximately 3,100 cartons into a 40’HC container.
Hi Admin, Please let me know about the thickness of walls of standard 40ft container in mm.
Hi, I having a product with 337 mm height and it can only be loaded into standard 40 ft container with upright position.

Hopefully this information will allow you to determine how much of your product will fit into a unit.
I am starting in the business of importing goods to the US and I was wondering what would be the advantage ( commercially) to buy a 40′ HC or 40’STD container as opposed to using the one provided by the transporting company? I would imagine that the answer is that if I have it ( the container) I will not need to be charged for it in my transportation service.

The 40ft Standard container is 8ft 6 in high on the exterior which corresponds to a 7ft 10in height on the interior. 40′ containers can be transported over the road using either tilt bed trailers, flat bed trailers or step deck trailers. Is it possible for me to stack up 7 layers of 337mm height product which will be in total height of 2359mm? My question is then given the typical price of a 40’HC container, when will I break even and will have saved enough to cover the cost of the container I purchased?

A 40ft Standard container has 2,350 cu ft of storage space on the interior, whereas the 40ft High Cube container has 2,694 cu ft of storage space. However, I have a client that has 2 x 40′ HC containers of goods, and wants to know how many and which types of trailers to order.
This additional height gives the 40ft High Cube container an extra 344 cu ft of storage capacity. Both the 40ft High Cube container and 40ft Standard container have a Maximum Gross Weight (weight of container and the cargo inside) of 67,200 lbs.
Would that volume of product fit in 2 x 48′ dry vans, or should I dispatch 53’s just to be safe? On the other hand, if you are using a shipping container for on-site storage and it is not being moved, the weight limit is irrelevant.
