If you have a product that your company produces that you need to ship overseas, one of the most cost-effective ways of shipping materials to other countries is through the use of ocean shipping containers. When it comes to using ocean containers, you want to make sure you choose the right container for your goods.
Ocean Container #1: Standard Container
First, you can rent a standard container. A standard container looks like the storage container you would see on the back of a truck.
Long-term storage often results in rent increases, turning that initial rental fee into a fairly hefty bill. One way to get around this is to transfer your belongings to a smaller unit so you again pay those lower initial costs (though your rent will still eventually increase on the new unit, too). The disadvantage is that you end up with less space and more crowded boxes. Is the trade-off worth it?
