What is a Container number?
One way to track a container is using the container number. A container number is composed of four letters (container prefix) which is the owner code followed by six digits serial number and a check digit. For example: ABCD1234567. The owner code shows the company to which the container belongs. The check digit is used to identify a possible mistype in the container number and is the last digit in the container number. The check digit validates the container prefix and the container serial number.
