3. Comparison of OOG container and ordinary container

There is no completely fixed calculation method for the freight rate of OOG container, because it involves the actual operation of each terminal and transit port, and also considers the space in the off-peak season.

OOG containers (20-foot open-top container, 40-foot open-top container, 20-foot flatrack container, 40-foot flatrack container) have limited equipment, and it is necessary to consider whether there are empty containers on the basis of freight; OOG containers should occupy space there are too many, and the freight rate will fluctuate greatly when the space is burst,it is necessary to leave a reasonable space in the quotation stage.
