High cube containers are a variant of the traditional shipping containers, designed to offer additional height without compromising on length and width. This type of container, also called “the taller cousin” of the standard shipping container, is available in 20ft and 40ft as standard. Unlike the standard shipping containers, which have a maximum height of 8 feet and 6 inches (approx. 2.59 m), high cube containers are 9 feet and 6 inches tall (approx. 2.89 m).
The additional space in our high cubes optimises cargo capacity and volume, allowing for better ventilation, which is particularly important for perishable goods that require proper airflow. They also facilitate the installation of cooling or temperature control systems for temperature-sensitive cargo.
Similarly, to other types of shipping containers, our high cubes can be used in the construction industry, building and development, manufacturing, education, retail, sports, healthcare, self-storage, oil & gas, offshore and local government.
