TYPES OF CONTAINERS USED IN MARITIME TRANSPORTATION ELEMENTS AND THEIR EXPLANATIONS

Offering a commodity to distant markets without a damage, in other words, its transportation; has become an element as important as the quality and price of the commodity. It has become an important part of the competitive power to transport the commodities from the point of manufacturing to the markets in an undamaged and cheap manner in the shortest possible time. This case acquires a more important dimension in foreign trade where the distance to be transported increases and transportation opportunities become varied.

Maritime transportation is the mostly preferred way of transportation in the world, due to the following reasons:

– It delivers too much load at once,

– It is safe,

– There is no border crossing,

– Loss of goods are at the minimum level,

– There is almost no other losses,

– It is 14 times cheaper than the airline; 7 times than the highway and 3,5 times than the railway.


Maximal load is carried via maritime transport in the safest and cheapest way. There is no border crossing problem between countries. A commodity purchased from America directly comes to our country without crossing the borders; the commodity exported from our country can directly go to the Netherlands without crossing the border.

In short, in the light of these information, types of containers; which occupy an important place in maritime transportation, can be specified in container transportation section as follows.

GENERAL INFORMATION FOR OT CONTAINER (20-40-DC/HC—OT)

**** It has the length and width measures of a typical, general-purpose container but the only difference is that it does not have a “stable top”. It is used in cases where the long/wide loads can not fit into the container through the doors but can only be put from above via the crane or similar tools. Mostly the goods such as machinery, marble plates, aluminium profiles etc. are carried. Open top container is also used for the loads with effusing from the top most of the time. It is tightly covered by a canvas after loading. Its base is a little thicker as it carries heavy loads and generally surcharge is added to the freight as it is in special equipment class.
