Platform Container

Platform Container

Details

Shipping container platforms are flat or open containers without sidewalls, end walls, or a roof. They often resemble a flatbed trailer, and their design allows for easy loading and unloading of cargo from the sides or from the top. The absence of walls and roof makes them suitable for carrying items that exceed the dimensions of regular containers, such as machinery, vehicles, construction equipment, or large, bulky items. They are often used to transport goods on small cargo vessels or ferries.  You can either hire or purchase our shipping container platforms with either wooden or steel floors, depending on the size and weight of your cargo. If you are not sure which type of floor is best for transporting or storing your cargo, speak to our friendly team on 0800 023 5060.
