Open Top Container 40 Feet

Open top containers are containers that do not have solid roofs instead they have removable bows and a weatherproof tarpaulin roof which can be secured with ropes and allows for a significantly simplified loading and unloading process. Open top containers normally also have end doors, like closed containers, to give flexibility for loading and unloading. This enables oversized cargo such as timber and scrap metal to be loaded from the top.

Open top containers are ideal for bulky cargo such as machinery. The removable bows on open top containers are not there solely to hold the tarpaulin cover but also to add stability to the shipping container.
