40′ PW DC (40′ Dry Cargo Pallet Wide Container)
40’ Containers are manufactured with one set of double doors on one end of the container and are generally ideal to transport voluminous cargo such as furniture, cotton, tobacco, rather than heavy cargo.
“A Pallet Wide Container is manufactured approx 4 inches (10.2 cm) wider than a standard width container to enable the stowage of more pallets in a single tier thus eliminating the unused space that can occur in a standard width container.
Euro-Pallets are ideally used in a Pallet Wide container as these fit in tight and the risk of the cargo moving around during transit is completely eliminated. Pallet-Wide containers are ‘heavy tested’ and payload capacity does not remain much of an issue. ”
