Railways, as a part of the overall global transport system, are actively involved in international transportation and logistics processes. Other modes of transport become ineffective without railways. For many countries railway shipping is dominant. A huge technical basis created for the processing of loaded and empty railway containers of 20 and 40 feet. Now the whole process is done almost automatically. The rules for railways are unified on the main issues: documentation and cargo mechanisms. Standards for international railway container transport correspond to the dimensions adapted by the World Railway Association.
The processes occurring in modern railway container logistics lead to the fact that a large part of the containers is performed automatically. Processing for receiving and sending of the railway containers is so a short in time procedure that the staff just need to monitor the serviceability of the wagon park and loading equipment. Time on railway operations with containers is reducing everywhere. Railway container is becoming more popular for the transportation of large items of cargo. Railways are more than 95% equipped with dry cargo containers. Sending of dry containers is the most comprehensive service for container transportation. All known types of 20 feet, 40 feet, 45 feet, etc. are included in this class of railway containers. Specialized railway containers are used less frequently, and not all railways are allowed to send other types of containers. Railway containers begin to displace even the wagons in those types of traffic, where containers could not withstand competition. The distinguishing factor affecting the growth of railway shipments in containers is that the container is easy to change. The owner of the containers does not have to spend a lot of money to repair his equipment, and if a wagon is broken a container continues its way at another wagon almost without delay.
