Shipping Container House

Shipping container applications go beyond transportation and storage needs. They are commonly becoming a design element in engineering, building and architecture.

Container homes have recently come to be popular, as well as storage facilities, office complexes, outdoor malls, swimming pools, and more.  Because of their structural integrity and durability, shipping containers can find renewed purpose as construction material and Interport is s primary supplier in the Northeast. With a wide range of inventory, our containers can be purchased in bulk quantities for an array of engineering and architectural projects.
