Are SOC containers for my company?

If you transport cargo on busy shipping stretches and from surplus locations, SOC containers might not be the best solution for you. As you can usually get good rates on those lanes.

SOCs are great alternatives to COC containers when you move cargo outside the busy shipping routes, to war zones such as Afghanistan and Iraq, and landlocked countries like Uganda.

It’s the same when moving commodities to inland locations. The distance between the loading point and the nearest available containers can quickly increase trucking costs. In turn, raise your freight bill significantly.

If you’re shipping to a special or surplus location, SOCs can be a cheaper alternative. Carriers and container owners, often don’t have an interest in getting containers situated in those places. Turning up freight prices.

With SOC containers you can also avoid paying demurrage and detention charges and high rates to use the boxes. Sometimes you even get paid to use a SOC container, if you’re moving the box to a deficit area.
