40ft open top high cube containers offer convenience for loading and unloading plus extra capacity. Manufactured 1 foot (30cm) taller than standard containers, 40ft high cube open hard top containers come with a separate steel lid that is fitted after loading and removed before unloading and requires use of a crane or forklift.
The 40ft open top high cube container is generally used for cargo of significant size, such as large machinery that is classified as out of gauge, or goods that may otherwise be damaged, for instance sheets of glass, if trying to load or unload via the end doors of a standard container.
