The 40 ft Shipping Container is the Optimal Size

Equipped with more than 300 square feet of usable space in the interior, this steel shipping container is strong and sturdy, and will keep your objects safe during storage or shipping. It is the optimal size for commercial use and a big enough size for overseas shipping.

The two most popular sizes are the 20' conatiner and 40' container. This makes them the standard sizes and the bestselling.

The corrugated steel 40’ ocean cargo container is the larger of the two ISO general purpose/dry freight containers.
Because the 40-foot is considerably longer, you have the option of dividing the container up into multiple rooms which you cannot do with the smaller 20-foot containers.
