Dry Cargo container
This type of container is for general cargo. General cargo should not be over-length, over-width, over-height, over-weight, or in bulk. Containers are constructed of steel for sturdiness and ease of repair. 45’ containers are not generally available in all the trades that shippingg lines operate.
This type of container is capable of maintaining the temperature of frozen, chilled or warm cargo. A refrigeration unit is built onto the nose of the container and power is provided by a motor generator (when container is on wheels), by terminal (when grounded in a yard) or by the ship (when laden on board).
The most advanced reefer containers are computerized enabling highly precise temperature control. Transportation has become easier due to this type of precise control that ensures preserving the quality of foods such as meat, fish, eggs, vegetables and fruits, as well as films, plants and pharmaceuticals.
Open top container
Open tops do not have a solid roof; instead they are covered with a removable, weatherproof tarpaulinthat can be secured with ropes. The metal beam above the door can be opened to the right or left andcan also be dismantled from the container. Lashing rings at the inside base of the container are usedto secure and prevent shifting of cargo during movement. This type of container is suitable for over-heightand/or lengthy cargo.
Flat Rack Container
Flat racks are best suited for stowage of heavy lift, over-height and/or over-width cargo. Flat racks have collapsible end frames. Lashing rings on the bottom side rails, corner posts and floor are available to enable cargo to be secure using straps or chains.
