Our dry cargo service is the simplest and most common one we offer. It has been developed to ensure the safe and efficient shipment of any containerised cargo.

For most of our customers, this service provides the support and equipment to move some of the world’s most commonly traded commodities such as paper, white-goods, and scrap metals; however, we understand that not all cargoes are quite this straightforward.

During our 40 years of experience, we’ve learned how to safely handle, stow and transport more complex cargoes, in turn allowing us to extend our dry cargo services to customers looking to ship food-grade, hazardous, and rare/precious cargoes.

Hazardous cargo

When we transport your hazardous cargo, we take the whole supply chain into consideration. From offering specialist training to our drivers, to the careful planning of container stowage on our vessels, we’ve established our operations to limit the risks associated with this type of cargo.

Food-grade cargo

We have an extensive inventory of reefer containers for food products that require refrigeration or freezing during transit. We also prepare our standard containers for other food-grade products to ensure we maintain the optimum condition of your cargo. Each container is dehumidified, offering you peace-of-mind that we can deliver your cargo in the same condition as it was received.

Rare and precious cargo

We understand that transporting rare or precious cargo can be stressful. When you work with PFC you can be assured that your cargo is traveling in safe hands, supported by a company with over 40 years of experience.

Please note that due to its bespoke nature, this service is subject to application. For further information please contact your local PFC agent.

We use the highest standards to control and maintain the dry cargo shipping containers businesses and consumers depend on to move a plethora of products from Point A to Point B, and, finally, to retailer’s shelves.

Again, this list is only a starting point. At Advanced Container Company, we know every business is different and you might need to ship dry cargo that isn’t on the list above. If you need to transport it, we can do it for you. In fact, in some cases, dry cargo shipping containers can be used to safely haul hazardous materials, food-grade cargo, and rare and precious cargo. While this might entail applications, regulation compliance, and some restrictions and limitations, we’re here to help guide you through that process.
