Container Dimensions




40ft Open-Top Container, this type of container differs from others because it does not have the traditional corrugated steel roof. Instead, it has a removable roof structure and a weather-resistant tarpaulin that can be fastened with ropes.

This makes loading and unloading the container much easier, as a crane can lift cargo in and out from above. In addition, the header over the door can be swung aside or removed, providing additional access for cargo.
