Today’s Publication Spotlight: *Updated Version*: BP25 – An Illustrated Guide to Container Marking Codes
A container type and size is depicted by the series of numbers in the upper right hand corner of the container’s right hand door. Of course if the container was right in front of you, the size and type could be ascertained by just walking around it.
However, as most of the time there is only a manifest, other shipping document or EDI transmission, you need to know the ISO numbering system to understand what type of container you are dealing with. This Briefing Pamphlet details the status of codes, cracking the code, the size code, the size code designations, the type code, and other marks. These markings and codes tell the initiated almost everything one needs to know about the type and service capabilities of a container, and can be a critical source of information.
