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 20’, 40’, 45’, 48’ and 53’, the latter two being more prevalent in the USA. Dapol model Containers in three lengths 20’, 40’ and 45’. These are now manufactured and moulded in the UK which means Dapol will produce a greater variety of these over the coming months to reflect the greater importance containers are playing to the modeller. Dapol also now produce curtain sided containers.All of the containers that Dapol produce are manufactured in limited runs to help modellers build up rakes of wagons with differing container liveries and running numbers. Be aware they sell out fast! All Dapol containers feature: • Detailed quality moulded body • Finely applied livery • Opening and posable doors • Compatible with Dapol’s range of intermodal wagons.
