Flexible Loading and Shipping

Manufactured to the same specification as our standard shipping containers, our open top range has had the metal roof removed from the container, replaced with a tarp roof instead. This gives you complete flexibility when it comes to loading cargo.

They are available in 20ft and 40ft lengths, so are suitable for most types of shipping and storage, as well as for bespoke purposes. Wind and water tight, they are designed to protect against weather damage, and multiple lashing points make transportation simple.

Open Top Container Applications

The nature of the open top container means it’s ideal for loading particularly big or bulky cargo, or for items that have additional height. We recommend choosing this type of container if you are transporting seeds, grains, stone or timber, as these items can be loaded in easily from the top.
