In logistics, a container is a sealable, standardized cargo-carrying unit with a volume of more than three cubic meters and a loading capacity of more than five tons. Containers are used to transport different loads such as LCL, refrigerated products or bulk cargo but they can also be used for tank loads. The designations and facilities vary depending on the area of use. There are, for instance, land containers, waste disposal containers and ISO containers.

Logistics involves the process of planning, implementing and controlling the most efficient and cost-effective flow and storage of goods, including raw materials, in-process stocks, finished goods and related information. Transportation is effected on behalf of the customer from the point of origin to the point of consumption. Essentially, it is the science and art of ensuring that the right products reach the right place in the right condition and the right quantity at the right time at the minimum possible cost.
