How are ocean containers delivered?

How are the ocean containers delivered?

Containers are delivered by truck, either tilt-bed or flatbed. A tilt-bed truck allows the container to be placed on the ground at the delivery location. Delivery by flatbed truck generally costs less than by tilt-bed, but requires that you have the proper machinery to lift the container off the truck at your site. BOSS Containers will arrange delivery to your location, either by tilt-bed truck, or regular flatbed truck, however you may also arrange your trucking and pick up at our depot locations. 20′ containers can be delivered twice at a time, and placed at separate ground locations at your delivery site.
