What's a container?
A container is an actual 20' or 40' size steel container by which overseas freight is transported. Containerization is a system of freight transport based on a range of steel intermodal containers (also 'shipping containers', 'ISO containers' etc). Containers are built to standardized dimensions, and can be loaded and unloaded, stacked, transported efficiently over long distances, and transferred from one mode of transport to another - container ships, rail and semi-trailer trucks - without being opened.
Blue Ocean Traders offers a container program for Direct Import of our product overseas to your store or warehouse. Our container programs are available from India, China, Egypt, and Europe. You may order either a 20' or 40' size container (see container dimensions below). Because container shipments are large, direct import shipments, we discount our normal wholesale price by 40%. We will help you every step of the way in placing your container order, from product selection from our line to delivery to your store or warehouse!
When ordering a container, all items must originate from the same country of origin (i.e. India, China, etc.) so that the items can be consolidated into a shipping container and loaded for transport overseas. With that said, you do not have to fill a container will all of the same item - we can put together a nice product mix for you with a variety of furniture and accessories - both vintage and reproduction.
