Today, there is a rising demand for shipping containers. And their use continues to rise at unprecedented levels.


It’s not surprising that there are about 17,000 general cargo ships at sea worldwide at any one time, and that millions of shipping containers cross the world’s oceans every day.


Although shipping containers were originally conceived to ensure simple, secure storage and transport for goods at sea, their portability, durability and versatility has turned them into viable spaces for a host of other purposes.


They are now being converted into different types of accommodation, as well as container cafes, container bars, restaurants, schools, swimming pools, offices, stores, emergency healthcare facilities, saunas, art galleries, disaster and evacuation centres, indoor gardens and nurseries, gyms, laboratories, and more.


The possible uses of shipping containers far exceeded their original purposes and the only limit is your imagination!


No matter the use you intend for the shipping containers you order from Shipping Containers Direct, you’re always assured of quality and value. Whether your buying a new shipping container, a used shipping container, or a modified  shipping container.

Our fleet also includes insulated containers intended for storing high-value goods at stable temperatures and refrigerated containers designed to transport perishable items safely .
