High Cube Shipping Container Sizes

High cube containers have one distinct advantage, a height of 9’6″ as opposed to 8’6″ on standard shipping containers. This makes these containers ideal for light and bulky cargo.

Our Best Selling Shipping Containers

The most popular standard sizes are 20-ft containers and 40-ft containers so it stands to reason that the most sought-after high cube shipping container sizes would be the same. They contain an enormous amount of internal space, making them the go-to for shipping or storing large items or large amount with a bit of added height.

Why? 20-ft containers are the industry standard length set by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization). 40-ft containers are the second most used in the industry. This makes them the easiest to stack and store.

It can be difficult to pick the correct size, it depends on what your individual needs are. To provide you with an example, you can fit 10 American pallet stacks in a 20-ft high cube container, or 12 European pallet stacks.
