This may not be an industry per se; however, the governments have benefited hugely from used shipping containers since long. Hence, it is appropriate to include them in our listings as well.
Many government agencies work during a specific period or season. This means they don’t need a permanent structure to carry out day-to-day activities. So, to store inventory and other supplies, most use a storage container. Governments are also about sensitive documents and these sturdy steel containers are an excellent choice for storing them.
These containers are great as training facilities for urban assault models, fire rescue squads, and hazard relief organizations. Since these are movable, one such training unit can serve people of multiple locations. These are also used as disaster shelters and to make barricades. The forest department uses these containers as temporary quarters for the fire-fighters when they are on the field. This cuts the commute time and money, as well as saves lives. Because of their low cost, shipping containers are also preferred by local municipal bodies, who often work under tight budget. These conex boxes provide excellent on-site storage of equipment for a very low cost per square foot.
The uses of shipping containers by the military services are well known too. Canteens, storeroom for arms and ammunition, bunkers, and even bridges are made from these containers.
Uses of storage containers by the governments:
- Training facilities
- Storage for inventory, supplies, and documents
