New & used shipping containers for sale on xChange

Before we get into some of the different container types, it’s important to decide between new and used boxes.

Each option has its advantages and disadvantages, so you need to decide which one suits you best. A new box is one that has done a maximum of one trip, from the place of manufacture to the place of sale. A cargo-worthy box is a used box that meets all criteria to be able to ship goods.
