For extra long, wide, high and heavy objects

Our 40ft Flat Rack container provides a convenient and safe way to transport and store exceptionally large objects. Commonly used by the industrial sector, they also provide a practical handling solution for vehicles and boats of considerable size. The choice between Collapsible or Fixed-Ends gives you the option of moving longer items, and ease of storage while it’s not in use. For handling loads with extreme weight, choose steel flooring over wood.

Size and configurations to suit a variety of needs

The 40ft offers a practical containerization solution for your impractical items such as ultra-heavy objects with large dimensions. The containers also come in a variety of configurations so you can get the best fit for your needs. Options -

  • Fixed-Ends: As pictured, the container has fixed-end walls but no side walls. This configuration suits wide-loads
  • Collapsible Ends: Collapsible end walls and no side walls. This option is great for moving heavy, wide-loads and has the flexibility to cater for items with extra length. Conveniently, the container can be stored flat when not in use
