Dry Containers 

What are Dry Containers Made of? 
Dry containers are made of aluminium or steel. Aluminium containers often support larger capacities of goods, whereas steel alternatives tend to have a slightly larger internal cube. 
 
What is the Capacity and Size of Dry Containers? 
The capacity and size of your dry container will depend on your requirements. At Boast International, we can organise transportation in various-sized containers to ensure the most efficient shipping of your products. 
 
How Much Do Dry Containers Cost? 
Dry containers are an economical, unspecialised container option. They demand lower operating costs due to their standardisation compared to specialised alternatives and compatibility with most handling equipment. 
 
What are the Limitations of Dry Containers? 
Dry containers aren’t suitable for transporting temperature-controlled or hazardous goods, as they’re designed for non-sensitive products only.
