Sea Freight Container



The agreements of the 1970s that led to the spread of the ISO Container established:

standard dimensions;
homogeneous attachments to improve handling;
unique number consisting of 4 letters (the first three identify the owner company), 6 numbers and a final number called check-digit, obtained from a calculation algorithm on the previous 4 letters and 6 digits. Currently, numerous types of containers can be used to meet all transport needs: Container Box, Container High Cube, Container Flat-Rack, Container Open Top, Temperature-controlled Fridge Container (Reefer), containers set up for the transport of hanging garments.
There are also Special Containers subject to availability by the carrier such as Tank-Containers and 45′ ft Containers.
Standard ISO containers can also be used for the transport of liquids, thanks to the installation inside the container of a flexible tank called Flexitank.
Cargomar is able to propose the most suitable solution to customer needs, considering the destinations served by the main carriers, the type of goods to be transported, optimizing transport times and costs.

Special Container


Cargomar quickly prepares the containers due to an efficient organization that operates close to La Spezia port, considered a strategic hub given the number of shipping companies serving this port.

Cargomar manages the service by carefully dealing with all stages of transport processing:

  1. selection of the most suitable containers;
  2. setup of the internal walls of the container protecting the items from potentially harmful agents such as humidity, dust, odors;
  3. preparation of the load-bearing structures (bars / hangers);
  4. positioning of the cntrs set up at the loading companies with vehicles equipped with satellite surveillance;
  5. forwarding to the port of loading;
  6. customs export formalities;
  7. dismantling and demolition of equipment at the receiving companies with return of containers to carriers in perfect integrity.
Liquid Transport in Containers


Over the years Cargomar has developed considerable know-how in the management of the transport of non-hazardous liquids by means of flexible tanks – Flexitank. The use of this logistic solution has supported the chemical industry and the wine sector by solving the problems associated with traditional shipping methods.

Cargomar works exclusively with suppliers who use Flexitank with quality compliant with food transport, US FDA Standards and EEC Directives. The latest construction techniques allow the production of Flexitank with the elimination of longitudinal seams that allow the reduction of risks, defects and failures. These new materials, such as Ethylene Co-Polymer, provide greater elastic properties, greater energy absorption and consequently greater physical strength, durability and the relative safety of the loaded goods.
The flexible Flexitank tanks are capable of holding up to 24,000 liters and are set up inside a standard 20-foot maritime container. These new materials make it possible to exploit every centimeter of space available during transport and it is estimated that it is possible to ship over 25% more goods than traditional methods, for example exceeding the limits imposed by the ISOTANK tank tanks, whose exorbitant costs of rental and complex cleaning operations aimed at avoiding contamination of the transported goods, decrease the efficiency of the transport cycle, increasing shipping costs.

Cargomar is able to supply and set up Flexitank throughout the national territory and takes care of all the transport phases:

  1. selection of the most recent containers;
  2. setting up the Flexitanks inside standard 20 ‘containers;
  3. positioning of the Flexitanks set up at the loading companies with the use of drivers with proven experience in the transport of liquids;
  4. forwarding to the embarkation ports;
  5. completion of customs export formalities;
  6. dismantling and demolition of equipment at the receiving companies, and return of the containers to the sea carrier.
