The typical high cube 40 foot shipping container has a floor area of about 300 square feet, and a volume of almost 3000 square feet. With this much room, high cube shipping containers are an obvious choice for large-volume shipping by sea or rail. However, just because they are called shipping containers, doesn’t mean they’re useless after the shipment arrives. In fact, many shipping containers are used as semi-permanent structures.

One major usage of 40 foot shipping containers is as storage units. Whether it’s at a farm, storing feed near the animals or fertilizers away from the farmhouse, or in the city to keep tools secure and out of the weather at a construction site, the portability and large capacity of a high-cube shipping container makes it an ideal choice. Schools and local governments use our 40 foot shipping containers for storage too, at parks, athletic fields and highway departments. And unlike self-storage units, shipping containers can be moved for seasonal storage, and you can even store a motorcycle, snowmobile or boat until you’re ready to use it again.
But 40 foot shipping containers are more than just storage boxes — many other uses exist for those who are willing to think outside the box. Besides a place to store tools, shipping containers are often found as field offices at construction sites, guard shacks and command posts for military and police use, and enclosed spaces for welding and sandblasting at industrial sites.
Shipping containers appear at big events like music festivals too. The ticket booth, the concession stands, and the bathrooms are often built from modular shipping containers, and the stages and sound equipment packed into new 40 foot shipping containers as well to travel to the next venue.
40 foot high-cube shipping containers are even a recent trend in eco-friendly housing. While a corrugated shipping container might not seem like the most comfortable home, with some decorating and a few minor modifications like windows, container homes can be one of the greenest and most economical modular buildings.
