As early as World War II, armies began experimenting with using containers for shipment of supplies to war zones. Cargo was delayed at ports due to time required to load and offload ships. Armies were losing money because of pilferage and in-transit damage. In 1948, pilot models were developed and the US Transportation Corps adopted the “Transporter, Household Goods, Shipboard,” commonly referred to as the “Transporter.” In late 1952, the Transportation Corps developed the Container Express (CONEX), replacing the “Transporter.” A shipment that normally took about 55 days to deliver was reduced to 27 days.
The 20 foot long by 81/2 foot high by 8 foot wide ANSI and ISO container is the primary size container for unit equipment shipments. Larger containers may be used in contingency or mobilization operations. The ISO container is already a standardized part of the world’s commercialized shipping and transportation system and the 20′ size are mainly used in 90% of the applications.
Containertech manufacture produces all models containers for military transport, from standardized 20ft containers, to custom-made, bespoke models. All Containertech products are certified to ISO 9000/2001 standards.
