If you’re looking to transport cargo, there are many container types and dimensions to consider. The type of container you choose will depend on the size, shape, and weight of your cargo. It’s important to understand what each type of container can accommodate so that you can find the right option for your needs. In this blog post, we’ll cover some of the most commonly used containers and their dimensions.

Open Top Containers

Open-top containers are similar to standard shipping containers but with an open top. These containers are typically used when the height of a shipment is too tall for a standard container or when loading or unloading requires that the items be lowered from above. They are ideal for large, bulky items like construction equipment, machinery, vehicles, furniture, etc.

Flat Rack Containers

Flat rack containers are designed for heavy loads that need extra support during transportation. These containers feature collapsible sides with two removable end walls for easy access to your cargo during loading and unloading. These containers are perfect for heavy machinery such as excavators, bulldozers, tractors, cranes, etc., as well as oversized items like boats or aircraft.

Reefer Containers

Reefer containers are temperature-controlled units that keep perishable goods at a constant temperature while in transit. These units also have built-in climate control systems with adjustable settings so you can tailor them to meet your specific needs. Reefer containers are great for transporting food products like produce or dairy products as well as pharmaceuticals or other sensitive materials that require controlled temperatures during transit.
