English term or phrase: sea van
En el contexto del transporte marítimo. Se trata de medios para poner la carga en las naves, medios distintos a los contenedores. En principio, estoy dejando el término en inlés, pero quisiera saber si alguien conoce una traducción válida y utilizada.
Gracias.

Contenedor seco


Explanation:
It seems you are dealing with synonyms here since a sea van, by the description available, is still a container but one that is either stowed differently and may also be designed to keep cargo dry and windproof. Some of the conditions under which contaniers are sold or brokered are>

Single use
Wind and Water Tight
As Is
Cargo Worthy, and so on.

I have copied some info below and also this site is useful:

***Double Door Dry Van Containers:

A relatively recent addition to the new container market are containers with double swing doors on both ends. Occasionally referred to as "tunnel containers", these containers offer access from both ends making loading and unloading from ground level more efficient. http://www.accbs.com/

Below are some dimensions for these dry van containers that may match the text you are working on, and maybe that will confirm the synonym theory.

Best of luck
