Dry Containers
Dry containers are the most common container type and do not need to be temperature controlled. They are fully enclosed shipping containers protecting them from all weather conditions. Dry containers can also be modified to the needs of the customer.
High Cube Containers
These containers generally come in 40ft and sometimes 45ft. High cube containers have the same benefits as dry containers but they are 1 ft taller.
Insulated and Thermal Shipping Containers
Insulated and thermal shipping containers are often used to ship foods and other goods that need to stay at a specific temperature. The controls on a thermal shipping container can be added to any dry storage container.
Flat Rack Containers
Flat rack containers have collapsible sides that can be folded down making the container flat. Flat containers are often used to ship heavy cargo that can hold up to 45 metric tons of cargo weight.
Double Door Containers
Double door containers are able to open from both sides of the container. This makes it easy to load and unload cargo. When the doors are closed they are weather tight.
Open Side Containers
Open side shipping containers are available in 20ft and 40ft. Open side containers have doors that can open from all sides. This makes it easy to load and unload items that wouldn't fit through the smaller end doors.
Half-height Containers
Half-height containers are regularly used to hold heavy items such as stones that have a low centre of gravity making them ideal for the mining industry.
