Side Opening Containers (referred to as an open side container) are one of the most popular shipping containers currently on the market. These side opening containers allow for access not only through the end as per a normal GP Container, but also full side access. These side opening containers are recommended for both storage and international shipping, as they allow for easy access to all cargo.
Side opening containers work by having concertina container doors along one long side, whilst retaining standard container doors on one of the 8’ ends. With reinforced panels, side opening containers are the perfect solution for the storage and shipping of heavy cargo.
The 20’ x 8’ side opening container is the most popular version, however a 40’ version is available via direct order with our brokerage department. The 40’ open side container is primarily available as a high cube (9’ 6” external height), however modifications are possible with our experienced container conversions team.
