Taller than a standard container, 40ft high cube containers provide an extra 1 foot (30cm) height, which improves the load capacity by approximately 344 cubic feet. With taller doors it also offers easier access when loading and unloading with a forklift.
As a dry container this is an ideal container for the transport of light, voluminous or bulky cargo. The additional height makes 40ft high cube containers a perfect solution for transporting oversized cargo, including construction and agricultural equipment.
