Popular Shipping Container Uses in the Albany Metro Area

The Albany metro area is a major tech hub on the East Coast and a nationwide leader in technology products and services. Therefore, we work with many tech companies to provide temporary and permanent office space and climate-controlled storage. As home to the state government, local municipal organizations often require shipping containers to use as gatehouses, field offices, storage units, and meeting spaces at job sites. The Albany area is also one of the top arts and cultural destinations in New York, which means that we are experienced in providing local organizations with shipping containers that serve as gallery exhibits, container kiosks, and studio space. Albany customers from various industries also contact Interport for containers to serve as portable restrooms, tool sheds, and for moving cargo to worksites.
