SHIPPING CONTAINERS FOR SALE Atlanta, Georgia
Hundreds of shipping containers arrive by air, road, or railway every day in Atlanta, Georgia, and are transferred to a dry port for processing.
The state has an inland port that serves as a transload facility freeing up space in surrounding port facilities
(including the deepwater ports of Brunswick and Savannah) connected to it through a 388-mile railway network.
Georgia has a dry inland port, which allows for faster cargo exchanges between ships and land-based freight transportation networks than other US ports.
The port, in total, supports more than 435,000 jobs (as of 2017) and move goods worth around $106 billion in sales (both imported and exported).
Shipping containers were utilized by a city designer to construct modular homes.
Wanona Satcher used to draw houses and cities on her grandparents’ living-room floor when she was in elementary school, imitating her childhood hero Herman Russell, whose developments she drove by every day in her native Southwest Atlanta. Now, the architect and city planner funnels her interests in workforce development and low-cost housing into West End–based Makhers Studio, a for-profit green manufacturing and design-build firm that repurposes existing materials (such as shipping containers) to develop affordable real estate in lower-income communities.
Shipping containers are a hot trend in the restaurant industry. They offer an affordable and sustainable option for building restaurants, with many benefits including lower cost, improved structural integrity, and reduced construction time. One such example of this is Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand which is made from two shipping containers located on 881 Marietta St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

Shipping your container internationally?
You will need a cargo worthy container that has passed a survey inspection. Our network of IICL certified inspectors can provide an independent survey inspection that ensures that your “shipper owned container” is cargo-worthy/seaworthy.
They will provide a one-page inspection detailing any necessary repairs and will certify that your shipping container is structurally sound and good for international shipping.
They will apply a new CSC (Convention for Safe Containers) sticker showing that your container has passed. This sticker is good for 1 year.
If your container needs repair, the certificate will be applied once the necessary repairs are made.
