A container is any receptacle or enclosure for holding a product used in storage, packaging, and transportation, including shipping. Things kept inside of a container are protected on several sides by being inside of its structure. The term is most frequently applied to devices made from materials that are durable and are often partly or completely rigid.

Star Citizen makes use of containers of different volumes or Standard Cargo Units (SCU) values to store cargo. Containers fix themselves to the cargo plates. The SCU value introduced earlier defines the exterior dimensions of containers[1].
