Top Industries Utilizing New & Used Storage Containers
Shipping containers are used across a wide variety of industries. Gone are the days when they were strictly used to carry goods all over the world.

8 Industries that Use Storage Containers
Construction job sites require durable, weatherproof and secure sheds to house the expensive building materials, tools and machinery. Used shipping containers are a popular choice for project managers because they can be put to use immediately after delivery. Further, since they’re made of high-grade steel, storage containers are extremely strong, difficult to break into (especially with upgraded locks & security features), air-water-and windproof. These factors combined ensure your valuable construction equipment is protected from moisture & extreme weather conditions.
Manufacturing facilities need ample storage to keep raw materials and finished products. Shipping containers can be modified to maintain temperatures and regulate humidity. Depending on the size of your operation, you can use multiple containers to form a warehouse.
Shipping containers can be used as an inexpensive extension to existing school buildings that have run out of classroom space. Further, in underdeveloped regions of the world, containers are transformed into schools, providing decent conditions for children and teachers.
Shipping containers are the preferred method of transporting vehicles. Further, they are used to store vehicles, as well as spare parts.
Shipping containers are an ideal solution to store sensitive documents. You can easily upgrade the unit to install shelving and partitions to keep the documents well organized. They are durable enough to provide protection for documents at any level. Further, AC/heating systems can be installed to maintain temperatures and regulate humidity levels.
Retail businesses, from clothing to electronics, supermarkets & department stores, deal with a lot of inventory. From smaller-scale stores to large, multi-chain corporations, every item must be segregated, organized and stored properly. Rather than paying the large cost to rent warehouse space, storage containers provide plenty of space for storage and can be easily moved if/when necessary.
Storage containers are predominant in the agricultural and farming industries. Expensive equipment, machinery, raw materials, livestock food and end products must be securely and properly stored. These items must be kept safe against the weather elements and pests, making durable storage containers a good, cost-effective option.
Further, with the depletion of farmland, farmers are opting for vertical storage to keep as much of their land intact as possible. Storage containers are meant to be securely stacked on top of each other.
Similar to the way containers can be converted into schools and office facilities, they can also be transformed into regular or mobile hospitals & emergency clinics. We know containers can be equipped with vents and A/C systems, but they can also be equipped to maintain aseptic conditions to perform surgical operations & more.
