Platform Containers

Platform Containers

Platform containers are available as 20ft and 40ft platforms and compromise of a reinforced base without side or end walls. The flatbed structure is built from wood with a steel frame and has an extremely high loading capacity which makes it possible to concentrate heavy weights on small areas.

Platform Container Specifications Platform containers are ideally suited to oversized, heavy load and awkward project cargoes which cannot be transported in other container types such as high cube or open top containers. 40ft platform containers have lashing rings for securing cargo of up to 3,000kg in the side rails and gooseneck tunnels at each end.

Platform containers can be lashed together to create a larger platform for oversized and heavy loads which exceed the standard platform container specifications.
