About Us

40' container modified to include several roll up doors and interior partition walls to form separate compartmentsWe have been selling shipping containers for over 45 years……. which might not sound like a long time, but when you consider the fact that the ISO standard for modern shipping containers wasn’t established until 1970 you realize that we’ve essentially grown up with the industry! We have evolved over the years to be the premier shipping container dealer on the East Coast, but we started working for shipping lines as buyers of containers, then we were in the container leasing side of the business, so we are keenly aware of the subtle nuances that can factor into your shipping container requirements.

Our experience in container modifications is what sets Transport Planning apart from other shipping container suppliers. Whether you are buying a modified shipping container for the first time or are a seasoned freight forwarder, we make sure that everything you need for a satisfactory experience is covered.
