 Flat Rack Shipping Container

How are they constructed 

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 the two panels can be folded to provide a ramp onto the flooring and folded on to the flooring to become slimline for transorting. The panels are folded up and locked into place whilst transporting the cargo.

Why choose a flat rack shipping container 

 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 taht wont fit into a stanard 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.

 Open Top Shipping Container

How are they constructed 

To construct an 20ft open top shipping container or 40ft open top shipping container, you start with a standard shipping container. The roof panel is removed to leave the three side panels, the container floor and the double end doors. With this specialised shipping container being an open top, you can apply a roof that can be removed if needed, for the removable roof on an open top shipping container you can either have a hardened roof or a tarped roof. To attach the temporary roof they get attached to the side panels and removed so that the 20ft open top or 40ft open top can be filled through the roof rather than the double end doors for larger items.

 Reefer/Refrigerated Shipping Container

How are they constructed 

To fabricate a reefer shipping container, you start with a standard 20ft shipping container or a 40ft shipping container, they are lined out on the inside and then the flooring is added. To cool the cargo that is in the reefer container the flooring is a specially designed 'T-Shape' that allows the cool airflow to come up the floor and circulate around the container. At the rear of the container opposite the double end doors there is a refridgerated unit that will allow the container's temperature to change. The reefer container will need a power supply from somewhere this can be generator power that can be attached to the container while in transit on the roal or rail.
