Containers are used to ship cargo over long distances and are built to fit many modes of transport at once. They can be moved from truck to rail and ship without the cargo being loaded and unloaded.
Most dry freight containers look like long, enclosed steel boxes. They are easy to use and ideal for various types of cargo. Containers often travel over long distances, so it is not always easy to find an insurance company that provides container insurance. It takes experience and knowledge of the industry to build container insurance that works.
Drivers and motor carriers usually do not own the containers. They are on lease from the company that ordered the shipment. Most ports will require you to carry proof of some form of container insurance. This insurance helps assure that the container returns in the same condition it left in. Organizing container drop-offs is one of the most complicated parts of shipping to and from ports and rails. Not only does the container need to leave the port, it needs to be returned to use again. Any driver knows that creating reservations, waiting to return containers, and dealing with logistics is not an easy task.
