Dry Containers 
What are Dry Containers Used for? 
Dry containers are ideal for transporting non-perishable materials and manufactured goods in bulk. They’re generally considered the ‘standard’ container type and aid in transporting up to 90% of goods annually worldwide. 
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.

What are the Limitations of Flat Rack Containers? 
Flat rack containers don’t have sidewalls or a roof, rendering them unsuitable for transporting many types of cargo, and the handling requirements are more complex than other containers.
