As well as double doors at one end, 40ft high cube full side access containers have doors that form the entire length. When fully opened, this side opening maximises access to the container.
The roof and floor of 40ft high cube full side access containers are reinforced to support the additional weight of the side doors, which does mean slightly less capacity compared to a standard 40ft high cube container. However, the advantage of the entire side opening is ease of access and the ability to side load and unload cargo. And the additional height makes 40ft HC FSA DC containers ideal for transporting bulky cargo.
