Different Shipping Container Types

dry and refrigerated containers

If you are considering hiring or buying a shipping container to transport cargo, act as temporary storage, or function as a site office while building, you may not know which type is right for you.

There are a few things to think about before spending your money, so read on to learn more about the types of sea containers available in Perth.



Also known as a dry container, general-purpose containers are fully enclosed, protected from the elements, and weatherproof, with a rigid roof, sidewalls, and floor. The most common shipping container for domestic and commercial cargo use in Australia, the general-purpose sea container, is used from onsite storage and shipment to conversion and modification.


High Cube

The High Cube sea container offers the same benefits as the General Purpose kind, with an additional 300mm height. The extra room allows for added storage space and caters to oversized cargo.


Dangerous goods

These containers display an added level of security, safety, and technology, ensuring your dangerous goods are stored as safely as possible.



Refrigerated Containers are perfect for the safe and hygienic storage of temperature-sensitive items and food. 



These types of sea containers are decommissioned Refrigerated Containers. The in-built insulation maintains a relatively steady internal temperature with no external power needed.



This type of shipping container features full bi-fold side doors, with double container doors in the rear end wall. Side-opening containers offer an added level of convenience when accessing, loading, and unloading your items.


Flat Rack

The flat rack sea container comes in many different configurations including, fixed end and collapsible ends. Contact the team at True Blue to see what is available.
