Unit 3: Size Type Codes
- Unit 3: Size Type Codes
This Unit examines the Size Type Code defined by the ISO to codify containers in terms of their external size and basic design type. The code is an important means by which all parties in the transport of containers communicate container descriptions during a containerized shipment. There are a number of different versions of the Size Type Code formats in use depending on when a container was manufactured.
