Container Dimensions




An open-top container differs from a traditional shipping container in that it lacks a roof made of steel corrugated material.

Instead, it features removable bows and a tarpaulin cover that is designed to be weatherproof and secure with ropes.

This design enhances the loading and unloading process, which can be performed with a crane.

The header above the door can also be swung around or removed to access the cargo easily.
