What is a Conex container?

A Conex box, also known as shipping, storage, or intermodal container are large cargo containers that are normally used to transport large goods via, trucks, trains, and ships. These containers are great to keep goods clean and dry with ample room to carry large items. 

What are the benefits of Conex box containers?

Shipping containers can be beneficial in many ways. Whether it’s for temporary storage for valuable items or used as a more permanent fixture that can store excess inventory, tools, hardware and equipment, these containers offer a cost-effective way to transport precious cargo to almost any location. Shipping containers also offer their durability and resistance to harsh elements which give you the option to store important documents and equipment in them as well. Being able to use these containers for multiple purposes means small and large businesses can justify spending on these units. 

Common benefits of Conex boxes:

  • Mobility
  • Affordability
  • Better pest control
  • Flexible
  • Efficient
  • Durable
  • Secure
  • Adaptable

What materials do Conex Boxes come in?

Depending on the type of product that is going to be shipped, the Conex box you will use can vary in size, material, and structure. Take a dry storage Conex for example. These are normally made of steel, and hermetically sealed, without cooling or ventilation. Then on the other hand you can have a refrigerated Conex box. These units will provide a temperature-controlled environment that allows the products to be transported at a constant temperature throughout the shipping process. 

Common types of shipping containers:

  • Open top container
  • Dry storage container
  • Flat rock container
  • Refrigerated container
  • Tank container
  • Open side container
  • Ventilated container

How long do they take to make?

Building time for a Conex box is not long at all. These containers can be done in a matter of hours due to the automated process of putting steel walls together and drying the paint. Containers are built with extremely high efficiency at highly automated factories, virtually all of which are overseas. After these containers are built, they can last between 12-15 years. The largest factors to the longevity of the containers are the natural elements such as rain and snow, and how many times the Conex container will be moved throughout shipping processes.

  • Roofing
  • Locking Mechanisms
  • Shelving
  • Ramps
  • Flooring
  • Insulation
  • HVAC
  • Electric/Lighting
  • Windows
  • Doorways
  • Graphic Decals
  • Special Equipment Installation

What is the typical price range of Conex Boxes?

Containers generally range from ten to forty feet in length. With varying sized containers, pricing will be based on a per build structure. Expenses will also depend on if the unit was repurposed or if you are building the unit from scratch. Often, the price doesn’t correlate with the age as much, but with the condition of the container. Price will also vary depending on modifications needed.
