Q. What is a TEU?

A. A Twenty-Foot Equivalent Unit, or TEU, is a standard measurement of volume in container shipping. The majority of containers are either 20’ in length, or 40’ in length. A 20’ container is 1 TEU, a 40’ container is 2 TEUs. Although the height of containers can also vary, this does not affect the TEU measurement.
