Tunnel Container

Tunnel Container


Tunnel containers provide enhanced flexibility for storing goods, especially in situations where access from both ends is advantageous. They are called “tunnel containers” because when the two doors on both ends open, you can see straight through to the other side. This design is particularly useful for efficient and streamlined operations, as it eliminates the need to turn containers around or reposition them to access the contents. Tunnel shipping containers are also known as double-end shipping containers or double-door containers.

The standardised dimensions of tunnel containers allow for easy stacking. They are available for hire and purchase in 20ft and 40ft sizes from our 23 depots across the UK.  

Tunnel containers also meet ISO standards, and are therefore viable for international shipping, and can be CSC plated for safe lifting whilst loaded.
