D.O.T. Certified Shipping Containers

Stock or Custom Certified Containers

MSDF container designs are engineered for your custom shipping needs.

We proudly serve many Department of Energy customers, such as Areva, Bechtel Jacobs, Entergy, Los Alamos National Labs, and NASA.

Created under our NQA-1 Quality Assurance program, customers can be confident that our intermodal containers meet the regulations necessary for shipping and disposal. Our specialty containers offer a variety of structural enhancement options – depending on the materials being handled (solid waste, liquids, and grout type applications).

As the manufacturer of Department of Transportation-certified stock and custom hazardous material shipping containers, you can buy direct from us. We supply both IP-1 90 and 45 cubic ft. boxes through our “quick ship” program with reduced pricing for truckload orders. 

We can enhance and add special features during manufacture.

We provide certificates of conformance for every product.
