Dapol 4F-028-102 40ft OO Scale Containers Mitsui Lines 7016440 & 8186026 (Pack of 2).

The 1:76 scale shipping containers from Dapol feature detailed quality moulded bodies, finely applied livery, opening and posable doors and are compatible with Dapol’s range of OO gauge intermodal wagons.

The development of containerisation after World War II has led to a huge increase in international trade.

This was a direct result of the increased security, greater flexibility and importantly reduced transport costs that using standardised containers for freight logistics offered.

Containers have allowed the safe transportation of goods from supplier to purchaser with the goods themselves being handled only once, no matter how many forms of transport are used. Prior to containerisation goods would have to be handled at every node in the logistics chain from truck/train to boat/aeroplane to truck/train again and finally to customer.

Containers come in five standard lengths 20ft, 40ft, 45ft, 48ft and 53ft, the latter two being more prevalent in the USA.
