Open Top Containers

Modern-day container operations require many skills, one of which is to ensure the right container is at the right place at the right time to meet the shipper’s ever more demanding needs. Shipment by open top offshore containers continues to be the preferred method for export goods.

Open top offshore containers, designed for awkward, oversize goods such as heavy equipment, can be loaded from the top by crane. This reduces handling costs. Refrigerated containers come in high cube and wide body dimensions, and offer temperature-controlled environments which can be monitored by an exterior temperature recorder, a central shipboard control, or even satellite transmission.  

Open top offshore containers are containers fitted with solid removable roof or with tarpaulin roof so that the container can be loaded or unloaded from the roof or top. These open top containers are ocean shipping containers with an open or removable roof or top, making it possible to load large, bulky or awkward cargo from the top.

Open top offshore containers are available in a variety of volumes and in a number of specialized constructions to accommodate various cargo types and needs. For example:

  1. The 20-feet container, the most popular volume, works well for start-up offshore businesses.
  2. The 40-feet container is the second most popular choice. It’s important to resist the temptation to overload this larger container, as you won’t be able to move overland!
  3. For large loads, a 45-foot container is an attractive bargain because it gives you a 27% increase in interior capacity over the 40-foot unit for the same handling costs.
  4. Containers come as large as 48 feet, but these are comparatively rare.

These containers with their roof loading facilities are intended for the carriage of heavy-sized and bad shaped cargoes, and particularly intended for those cargoes whose height is more than that can be stowed in a half open top container. They may also be described as an open sided containers. Tarpaulin tilts are available to protect the cargo. These open top containers are ideal for sheet glass, timber and heavy machinery.

Previously ships would have to handle cargo of all shapes and sizes. Open top containers allow for the standardization of handling equipment on ships, on trains, in ports, on trucks, etc. The dimensions, material norms and physical features of the containers are the same internationally. This permits it to be transported using ship, rail and/or road form origin to final destination. The open top containers offer increased versatility over standard boxes and are designed for loading through both the top of the container and the doors.

The use of open top containers has revolutionized the transportation of almost every internationally and globally traded Cargo.
