Each intermodal container has various information regarding its dimensions and capacities clearly marked on the rear of the container. On January 14, 2000, an empty 40' container weighing approximately 4 tons fell while being offloaded from a ship. The container fell onto the cab of the truck waiting to receive it, making jelly of the driver. As far as I know, there was no mention of it in the news.
