Types Of Shipping Containers

As mentioned earlier, shipping containers come in a variety of lengths such as 10ft, 20ft and 40ft. They also come built for specific purposes, some of the containers listed will be more suited for modifications than others should you wish to repurpose one. Be sure to check with an expert before committing to one type and ensure it is the right fit for your needs.

Open top containers are similar to general containers however they have no steel roof fixed in place. This makes them easy to load via crane and fit unusually shaped items.

Side opening containers are as they sound – openable from the side as well as from the end of the container. These containers feature bi-fold doors and allow enhanced access to pack and unpack their contents. This style of container also makes modifications and conversions simpler as it eliminates the need for additional costs when removing the steel sides.

High cube containers are almost identical to a general purpose container other than offering an additional 300mm in height. This adds extra storage for transport purposes or versatility if modifying.

Refrigerated containers, also referred to as ‘reefers’, are used for shipping temperature sensitive items or creating on site refrigeration. Refrigerated containers offer safe and hygienic refrigeration for food, medicine and more.

Insulated containers, made from decommissioned refrigerated containers, insulated containers offer temperature controlled, stable environments. Ideal for when refrigeration is not required but goods still need protection from extreme heat and cold.

Dangerous good containers, these containers are created with added levels of safety, security and technology to protect volatile goods and those transporting them. These containers ensure your goods are moved legally, efficiently and with minimal risk.

Flat rack shipping containers, flat rack containers are containers without sides but featuring fixed or collapsible ends. Designed for transporting items that need a secure platform but no protection from the elements, flat rack shipping containers can be configured to suit your needs.

Pallet wide shipping containers, made to fit two Australian pallets side by side, these containers are the ideal option for both transporting goods within Australia and imports/exports.
