Over-height or large bulk cargo shipping container

The 6.1m (20ft) long 32m3 opentop is one of the more common types of special purpose container used in the shipping industry. It is used primarily for the shipment of over-height or large bulk item cargoes (such as machinery) that are unable to be loaded through normal container doors. 

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

Removable Roof
Opentop 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.

Weatherproof Tarpaulin
Once the cargo is loaded into the container, the tarpaulin is resecured and provides watertight protection for your cargo, even in the case of over height items.

Half Heights
Half height open top containers are available – these are used primarily for carrying heavy bulk cargo such as ore or rock.
