Why shipping containers are popular

Shipping containers are popular due to their many uses. They are secure, robust, and can be stacked on top of each other, making them perfect for transport and storage. They can be delivered, moved, and removed as needed, so many people use them for other purposes as well. They’re great for farms to store equipment, offices to store supplies, and can even be used for accommodation or business fronts.
