CARGO WORTHY IICL storage containers

Cargo worthy IICL is the highest grade within the shipping industry for used containers. Sometimes it is referred to as Premium Grade, and it is the best option if quality is your main concern.

The term IICL refers to the International Institute of Container Lessors ( criteria to ensure the highest quality for international shipping purposes. We find this grading system to be helpful for our customers because these containers are generally look better and will last longer than all other grades. 

These units have not been retired by the shipping lines because of extensive use, they are currently being used by the shipping lines, which means that they have no issues nor are they likely to have issues arise in the foreseeable future that would question it's structural integrity. 

The price difference between Cargo Worthy and Cargo Worthy IICL is usually not that big, so it is always preferable to get a Cargo Worthy IICL container if you have the opportunity, especially if you will be doing any custom modifications.
