New Shipping Containers

New shipping containers, also known as 1-trip containers, may have a few minor scratches or dents, but they have only made the journey overseas once. Each container is surveyed and inspected to IICL standards.


Used Shipping Containers

Cargo Worthy (CW) are used, but they can be suitable for cargo transportation. They are structurally sound and wind/watertight but will have minor dents, scratches, and rust. CW containers will need a valid CSC inspection sticker for overseas shipping.

Wind & Water Tight (WWT) can no longer pass certification for cargo transportation. When they are approx. 10-20 years old and retired from overseas shipments, they can still be used for many domestic applications. They will have superficial dents, scratches, and surface rust but are in good condition, weatherproof, and structurally sound.

As Is containers are no longer wind and water tight and could have internal and external issues such as floor damage, holes, or other fixable repairs.

Advanced Container Co. supplies both second-hand and new cargo-worthy steel shipping containers in a range of sizes and designs. We sell the steel containers you need locally in Houston, and worldwide. There are numerous designs, but 95% are what are termed dry containers, which carry general freight. There are also refrigerated units designed for transporting either frozen or chilled cargo and specialty steel boxes, many of which are specifically designed for certain cargo. 

All shipping containers must conform to international standards such as ISO, UIC, TIR, and CSC, and Advanced Container can advise you on the right type of container for your specific needs.

The advantages of choosing steel containers are endless. Steel storage containers provide dry, theft and vandal proof storage for a variety of purposes including office equipment, tools, materials, and more. We also have an in-house fabrication shop if you need an additional movable workspace, some examples are offices, restrooms, and workshops.
