  • Description

    Standard containers are also known as general purpose containers.

    They are closed containers, i.e. they are closed on all sides. A distinction may be drawn between the following types of standard container:

    • Standard containers with doors at one or both end(s)
    • Standard containers with doors at one or both end(s) and doors over the entire length of one or both sides
    • Standard containers with doors at one or both end(s) and doors on one or both sides

    In addition, the various types of standard container also differ in dimensions and weight, resulting in a wide range of standard containers.

    Standard containers are mainly used as 20' and 40' containers. Containers with smaller dimensions are very seldom used. Indeed, the trend is towards even longer dimensions, e.g. 45'.

    Standard containers are used for all types general cargo (dry cargo).

  • Description

    High-cube containers are similar in structure to standard containers, but taller. In contrast to standard containers, which have a maximum height of 2591 mm (8'6"), high-cube containers are 2896 mm, or 9'6", tall. High-cube containers are for the most part 40' long, but are sometimes made as 45' containers.

    A number of lashing rings, capable of bearing loads of at most 1000 kg, are mounted on the front top end rail and bottom cross member and the corner posts.

    Many 40' containers have a recess in the floor at the front end which serves to center the containers on so-called gooseneck chassis. These recesses allow the containers to lie lower and therefore to be of taller construction.

  • Usage

    High-cube containers are used for all types general cargo (dry cargo). However, they are particularly suitable for transporting light, voluminous cargoes and overheight cargoes up to a maximum of 2.70 m tall.
