About CSC Plating

A CSC (International Convention for Safe Containers) plate is required on all ISO containers that are being used for Intermodal transport. The CSC plate acts as a container’s certificate of safety, and allows container depots, and international ports the assurance that a container is safe to be handled and transported whilst fully loaded.

Each container must pass the technical requirements of the ‘International Convention for Safe Containers’ in order to be awarded a plate. This is generally done initially on completion from the factory, whereby the new ISO shipping container is given a CSC plate valid for 5 years.

After that 5 year period each container must be individually assessed and the valid timescale of each CSC plate will depend entirely on the structural integrity of each container.

Each CSC plate contains the following information:

  • “CSC SAFETY APPROVAL” Stamp
  • Country of approval and approval reference
  • Date of manufacture
  • Manufacturer’s identification number of the container
  • Maximum Gross Weight (Kg and Lbs)
  • Allowable stacking Weight (Kg and Lbs)
  • Transverse racking test load value

Willbox have representatives who are able to apply new CSC plates to all shipping containers. This is common depot service, which is required to be carried out on behalf of the shipping lines, as their containers frequently come out of plate during their working life. Willbox are also able to offer a full container inspection and survey under IICL5.

If you require your container to be CSC plated, or have a IICL5 Survey, please contact a Willbox representative on 0800 023 5060.

Instead of building a £45,000 extension we purchased 3 containers, and to be honest they are better than the building would have been! Office Manager Haven - Church Farm
Thank you for the superb way our transaction was completed and for your excellent customer service. Can I also thank your driver Leon- his finesse with the hiab was brilliant. Phil Howell Customer

Had a shipping contain for about a year. Delivery and pick up were easy - even in a tight space !!
The communicarion with Matt, Holly and the delivery driver of the haulage company was fantastic. We had an awkward delivery due to our location, but Holly arranged a site meeting with the delivery driver who confirmed it would be ok with an early morning Delivery! Would certainly recommend you.
Once all the paper work was done very quick and effective service in dropping the container off will use again
