A tunnel shipping container can be used for a wide range of possibilities and are popular for a variety of reasons

Tunnel

Storage

These containers are ideal solution to storage for two purposes with it having two accesses it means clients can easily store stock for personal / business use and easily manage all the stock levels working from both sides (where in a standard shipping container you may struggle to get items from the back of the container). Also, the second feature with storage in a tunnel shipping container, you can create smaller stores, if you had a 20ft tunnel shipping container you could split the container in half by adding a partition wall and create two 10ft storage containers both with double end doors.

Choosing a Tunnel Shipping Container is down to the need of the client, they are easily converted for multiple uses from storage to personnel bridges but they can be converted into a wide range of conversions. Tunnel Shipping Containers are ideal for storage as they can be loaded from both sides, making it easier to get stored goods out from either side.

Tunnel Container Construction

A Tunnel Shipping Container is manufactured from a standard shipping container but has double doors at both ends (double ender). From a standard 20ft or 40ft shipping container, the solid end of the container is removed leaving it open, then a new set of double doors is welded in place creating a two-way access. A ‘tunnel’ can also be constructed from a high cube container, for clients needing the additional height.

Tunnel shipping containers are only available in new ‘one trip’ condition.

They are typically either 20ft or 40ft in length and 8ft 6” in height, tunnel containers can also be manufactured using high cube versions for when you need the extra height (9ft 6″ rather than the standard 8ft 6″).
