Port shipping containers Newcastle NSW gets containers from around the world. The containers are use to ship products around the globe on ships and are never transported empty. This means they grow in large quantities at the docks of all the major ports. We requested “premium grade” containers and they came from Sydney to Newcastle where they were refurbished. We had them painted green. We added “thermilate” to the paint. Thermilate is a powder that helps the isulation. The powder is a ceramic bead filled with a vacuum that resists conducting heat. It can create a 7 degree drop in temp with only a thin layer.
