Shipping Container Dimensions

Shipping Container Dimensions

It is essential to consider the container size, both internal and external dimensions before modifying a shipping container. The internal size is important to know exactly what will fit inside your container. The external dimensions will ensure there is plenty of space outside your container, like if you have a pop-up container cafe or shop, is there enough space to serve customers and can it be conveniently moved around? The external area needs to be carefully thought about as the space outside the container has more variables. You do not want to restrict either the movement of your container coming in and out or the opening of doors.
