About this shipping container
The 12.2m (40ft) long 67m3 open top is one of the more common types of ‘special’ container used in the shipping industry.
It is used primarily for the shipment of over-height or large bulk item cargo (such as machinery) that is unable to be loaded through normal container doors. Another common use is for the transport of bulk granular cargo such as grains, wood chips and rock/ore.
Cargo is normally loaded through the roof once the tarpaulin and roof bows have been removed, or alternatively swung in through the doors once the rear top rail is removed.
Pricing of used containers varies according to grade and market supply parameters.
Boxman new built container features
Open top containers feature a removable tarpaulin roof which is supported by roof bows. Cargo is easily loaded through the roof cavity once these have been removed.
Removable Rear Top Rail
For large machinery or bulk items that need to be slid in through the container doors, the rear top rail can be removed for better access.
Once the cargo is loaded into the container, the tarpaulin is re-secured and provides watertight protection for your cargo, even in the case of over height items.
Half height open top containers are available – these are used primarily for carrying heavy bulk cargo such as ore or rock.
