40’ SD DC (40’ Side Door Dry Cargo 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.

Side Door Opening containers are used for both intermodal transportation as well as storage and mobile shops. The entire side of the container’s cargo is visible when both of the door panels are folded back making loading and unloading extremely practical. When used for storage or displays, visibility of stock is extremely enhanced.
