Essential questions about repairing containers

Describe your requirements to us and we will find a solution together. Think about the following questions in advance.

  • Can the damage already be quantified?
  • According to which standard does the container have to be repaired?
  • How quickly does the container need to be repaired?
  • Is it a reefer container and therefore a more complex repair?

Careful planning and coordination saves you time, nerves and, above all: your money.

Containers are long-lasting

Containers have to endure quite a lot during their time of service. They are not only exposed to plenty of natural and environmental influences on their journey around the globe, but they also have to withstand the physical strain of transshipment, loading and unloading, and shifting cargo. Should the container be damaged to an extent where its functionality is impaired, there is always the possibility of repairing it.

Additionally, the container’s suitability for shipping is documented through a tag signaling CSC-acceptance. This tag is valid only for a specific period of time, but can be renewed through reassessment and additional repairs (if necessary). After the initial CSC-assessment, a newly built container has to undergo its first reassessment after 5 years. The tag can be renewed for up to 2.5 years at a time, if the container is deemed fit. Working closely with our depots, we can always assess our containers’ condition and availability. If repairs or reassessments of the CSC-tags become necessary, we have experts in our network who will work with us to tackle them.

Repair standards

Container repair is in accordance with the following standards.

  • IICL Latest Edition (6)
    The container has a valid CSC plate and complies with IICL standards. This standard is higher than Cargoworthy.
  • Cargoworthy
    The container has a valid CSC plate and is approved for international sea transport.
  • Wind and water tight
    The container may no longer be suitable for international transport. However, it is still fully usable as a storage container.
  • As Is
    The container has not been inspected or is damaged. This is the cheapest option if you want to do it yourself or if the condition does not matter at all.
