    Greetings,

    It's been quite awhile since I've been involved with this kind of shipping. Containers come in different sizes. Costs vary depending upon the "cube" or density of the shipment, as well as the size. Your best bet would be to contact one of the overseas shipping companies. They will need to know the details. Then they could optimize the container size so you won't get charged extra for the "cube"

    You can try sealand for a start at:

    Googling should provide more results.

    Regards
    Dennis

    A "D-container" for air freight, or one
    of the multi-mode containers for
    sea/train/truck use?

    There are several "standard" sizes for
    multi-mode containers, so your choice
    depends more on the frieght fowarder's
    standards than anything else.

    But watch the maximum mass limits, as you
    may find that 55-gallon drums of something
    as heavy as honey will run you over the
    weight limit long before you fill the
    volume of the container.

    Ain't shipping such fun? (Gag!)
