I just wanted to put a few visuals and terms out there for the industry to refer to when talking shopping carts. Since shopping carts are known by many different names (carts, trolleys, carriages, etc.) I hope that this post can become a living document and if you know of a different term that is used for the various parts of the shopping cart in these visuals or if there is something that I did not call out, please comment and add to this knowledge base.
Standard Wire Cart
Standard Plastic Cart
Two-Tier Convenience (aka “Express”) Shopping Cart
