Some shipping lines are introducing oversized containers, (containers exceeding International Standards Organisation dimensions) though at present they are limited to specific trades and are not used extensively by companies servicing Australia. In view of the possibility of increased market demand for oversized containers, this report identifies potential problems if they are widely introduced, as well as listing the perceived benefits. The report also provides a basis for developing Australia's stance for international discussions on oversized containers.
