20ft containers with double door opening are also known as tunnel containers. Double door containers are manufactured with two sets of double doors at each end of the container rather than just one end.
Cargo can be accessed from either end of the container, which makes loading and unloading faster. Double doors at either end eliminates the need to unload the entire container to access goods stored deep inside, which again saves time and reduces the risk of damage moving cargo in and out. For that reason, 20ft double door opening containers are useful for transport of smaller items that may be loaded and unloaded by hand or by forklift.
Double door containers are also ideal for storage. As well as being robust and secure, the advantage of double doors means that the container space can be compartmentalised into two sections.
