If you’re looking for a used shipping container to export, we recommend a CWO (cargo-worthy) container. CWO containers are used shipping containers ranging in age from 10-15+ years old that will pass a CSC (container safety certification) survey.

Wind & Watertight shipping containers are used shipping containers that won’t leak and useful for storage but they can no longer pass a CSC (container safety certification) survey.

Roughly 12-15+ years in age, wind and water tight containers have been retired from shipping service by the intermodal companies that own them. While they can no longer meet the strict requirements to be stacked 7-high while loaded, they were being used for freight up until they were sold.
