You will need to get a bit more specific. Each container, and there are
hundreds of designs, is different. Most companies make a steel as well as
an aluminum models of 20' and 40', open and reefer type containers. To
compound the issue, is  whether the cans are lined or not, as well as their
interior and exterior coatings, and the wall corrogation shape.

       I am doing some transport-related shielding calculations.  Does
       anyone know
       the wall thickness (sides and ends) of standard 20 foot or 40
       foot sealand
       shipping containers?   If so, the reference/source would also
       be appreciated.

       Since I get Radsafe in digest mode, feel free to respond
       directly to me.
