Key Information for Flat Rack Shipping Containers

Transportation/shipping -Flat Rack Shipping Containers a most commonly used in the transportation industry, they are used to transport machinery, large transportation like trains, excavators and much more, lifting equipment. The flat rack container is used when the cargo will not fit into a standard shipping container. Being used by transporters they will also be used for shipping overseas as they can ship larger cargo, also for transporting just the flat rack you can transport more as the design will allow them to be stacked and take up less space.

You would choose a flat rack shipping container depending on the cargo that you are going to be transporting. With the flat rack not having side panels they are used to transport wide load cargo from large cranes/farming equipment, to large machinery parts that won’t fit into a standard shipping container or any of the other specialised shipping containers. Another reason people choose Flat Rack Containers is because they are easily stored away for future use as they are able to be folded flat and take up less space.

Flat Rack Container Construction

A Flat Rack Shipping Container is designed differently to a standard shipping container, they have three panels – the container flooring, a front panel and a back panel. However, the front and back panels are designed very different to the panels you get with other shipping containers, the panels on a flat rack are hinged so that the two panels can be folded to provide a ramp onto the flooring and folded on to the flooring to become slimline for transporting. The panels are folded up and locked into place whilst transporting the cargo.
