Stationary containers can be transported when empty like any other block. They have to be placed to be filled and are then left in place. They cannot be transported with items inside.
Some items such as metal ingots, fired clay moulds & firewood do not need to be stored in containers because they can be stored on the floor.
Portable containers add additional inventory slots. The containers are placed in the four right hand slots in the hot bar, which are known as container slots. The additional inventory slots appear to the left of the crafting grid in the order in which the portable containers are placed in the container slots. You can place different types of carriable container in different container slots.
When you remove a container from the right hand container slots on the hot bar the contents are lost. Ensure you remove the contents of the container before you remove the container.
