Container sizes and dimensions

Box Container

The box container (also called sea container) is one of the most widely used closed means of transport worldwide. The industrial goods are protected by the continuous steel shell. However, when transporting goods by sea, it is still essential to protect the goods against environmental influences such as salty sea air and strong temperature differences. Cargo securing is carried out during container loading by the employee responsible for loading.

High Cube Container

The High Cube Container is approx. 300 mm higher than the Box Container.

Open Top Container (OT Container)

In the OT container, the container lid or roof consists of a removable tarpaulin and light cross braces. This tarpaulin and the struts can be easily removed and allow bulky industrial goods to be loaded by crane from above. With this type of container, however, the industrial goods are much less protected against environmental influences and must therefore be prepared much more carefully for the sea transport.

Flat Rack Container

A flat rack container has no steel wall on the two long sides and is therefore particularly suitable for loading bulky industrial goods. This type of container consists of a stable floor with two end walls and can be stacked and loaded like a standard container. Transport weights of 40 tonnes (at times also 50 tonnes) are possible due to the strong floor construction.
