Cargoworthiness is an official certification criterion used by shipping companies to determine whether a container is fit to travel across the ocean for the purpose of transporting freight. A Cargo Worthy-grade container passed an inspection of the doors, floor, walls, ceiling, and is certified of its overall integrity. It is a fully structurally sound, used container that is leakproof and comes with no holes. It can be used in shipping goods overseas and for on-land storage and transportation. Every unit comes with our 1-year warranty against structural defects.
You may see a moderate amount of surface rust, dents, and scratches, as well as the occasional large shipping line decal. In some cases, a Cargo Worthy container’s condition will be no different than a Wind and Watertight container. However, it has been inspected by a maritime surveyor and can be used to ship goods overseas.
Unless a paint modification option is added at checkout, the color of the container cannot be selected. Contact us to color match multiple-unit orders.
For 40-foot-long long units with more visual appeal, see our Cargo Worthy Premium and “One Trip” options. If cargoworthiness and appearance of the container are not of the essence, the Wind and Watertight grade is a great economical option.
Recommended for use in custom modifications.
