An intermodal container (also freight container, ISO container, shipping container, hi-cube container, and sea can) is a standardized reusable steel box used for the safe, efficient and secure storage and movement of materials and products within a global containerized intermodal freight transport system. "Intermodal" indicates that the container can be moved from one mode of transport to another (from ship, to rail, to truck) without unloading and reloading the contents of the container. There are approximately seventeen million intermodal containers in the world of varying types to suit different cargoes.

A typical container has doors fitted at one end, and is constructed of corrugated weathering steel. Containers were originally 8' wide by 8' high, and either a nominal 20' or 40' long. They could be stacked up to seven units high. At each of the eight corners are castings with openings for twistlock fasteners.
