The Flat Rack Solution to Over-height Cargoes

Open top shipping containers provide an easy way to load and unload cargo, but they have their limitations. The metal roof or tarpaulin that is placed over the opening once the cargo is loaded restricts the height of the container. This can be a problem if you need to transport tall items.

Removing the roof bows is not an option, as they are essential for the rigidity and stability of the container. If you need to transport tall items, you may be better off using a flat rack container. These containers have no roof, so there is no height restriction. However, they are not as stable as open-top containers, so you will need to take care when loading and unloading them.
