Other Names for a Shipping Container
If you’ve ever done any researching for new or used shipping containers, then perhaps you’ve caught sight of a few names that are different variations but all point to the same thing. We prefer the easy, self-explanatory version name – just the regular ol’ ‘shipping container’ – but do like to switch it up sometimes!
Some of the names might make you scratch your head and think, “Where did that come from?” but many have evolved just as any other slang does – in a specific location and with a specific definition in mind! The most commonly used in the actual shipping industry are ‘ISO Container’ and ‘Intermodal Container,’ but there are plenty of other names that float around outside of the industry.
Some of the popular iterations of the same product are:
1. Sea Can
2. Conex (Box)
3. Intermodal Container
4. ISO Container
5. Cargo Container
6. Sea Van
7. Dry Box
8. Freight Containers
9. Container Van
10. Sea Container
