Open Top Shipping Containers

Open top shipping containers are capable of being loaded from above and can carry oversize cargos. Available as 6m standard or 12m standard shipping containers, they can be supplied with either a removable hard top roof or a tarpaulin. Open top shipping containers can also be used as waste or scrap metal bins. Shipping Container Modifications

Open top shipping containers are extremely specialised, and as such we do not hold inventory in all Australian locations at all times. However we can generally source new and used containers in a timely manner.

Open Top Container Applications:

  • Transport and storage of industrial length steel and plastics
  • Transport and storage of heavy plant and machinery
  • Transport and storage of large tyres
