A key feature of a side opening shipping container is its ability to be opened across the entire length, to reveal the interior of the unit. Instead of a solid wall at the side, they have two bifold doors that can be opened individually or together so that the entire side of the container is open.
Side openers still feature the traditional cargo doors at one end as well as offering full side access, creating a unique opportunity to store goods or transport cargo. Unlike with standard shipping containers, there’s no issue with accessing items at the back of the unit, giving businesses more flexibility with their stock.
Our side opening containers are manufactured to the highest quality. Available in both standard and high cube specifications, and in 20ft and 40ft lengths, they’re suitable for many different types of cargo. Wind and watertight, they are also designed to protect against the elements.

Side Opening Container Applications
Side access containers have many different uses. Due to their easy forklift access, and the ease with which pallets can be picked up, our side access containers are ideal for businesses who are looking to store their stock. Much like our popular tunnel containers, they are full access containers. With double doors at one end and full side entry, stock is easy to manage and simple to access even near the back of the container.
Side opening shipping containers are also a popular choice for a number of commercial projects, due to their quick set-up time and ease of transportation. This can include pop-up bars and catering, exhibition stands and even ticket sales offices.
Variations of a Side Opening Container
