Types of containers

A cargo container for international (and also for domestic) transportation — is a transport facilities unit of multiple use. Construction of a cargo container provides safe transportation of cargo by one or some means of transport which is achieved due to container’s solidity during its target life.

Basic types of cargo containers are the ones of standard IC and ICC types, also of IA and IAA types. Containers of ICC and IAA types are 2591 meters (8.5 feet) high, and containers of IC and IA types are 2438 meters (8.0 feet) high. This fact determines the difference in transport tariffs for one and the same basic load in the territory of Russian Railways.

The most important operational parameters of containers are their inside dimensions, such as door width (2286 мм), height (for ICC and IAA — 2261 m, for IC and IA — 2134 m) and interior space, also weight of cargo which together with the weight of container make gross weight.

Irrespectively of their purpose of use all containers are standardized by gross weight, dimensions, also by construction of attachment devices connecting them with the rolling stock of a railway or automobile transport and with gripping devices of loading-and-unloading machines.

It allows to perform multimodal carriage by different means of transport with minimum time outlays and labor costs, realizing «door-to-door cargo delivery» principle.
