When ordering a container you will be ordering by CBMs (Cubic Meters) to fill the container's volume. For easy substitution please order at least an extra 5 CBMs per container. For example, if you were ordering a 40' standard container you would place an order for at least 63 CBMs instead of 58 CBMs. The supplier will ship the first 58 CBMs that are available.
We are now offering consolidating containers. We can now mix up to 3 different suppliers in a container and ship from China directly to you. A minimum of 20 CBMs for each supplier is required on mixed containers.
Suppliers/Brands Available For Consolidating
To order, fill out each price list/order form as if you were ordering a container. Make sure your orders combined come out to at least 58 (standard) or 67 (high-cube) CBMs. Brothers is not available for consolidated containers. Call us at 573-447-1776 for details.
