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:

  • 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 that can normally 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 the shipping process.
