FLAT RACK SHIPPING CONTAINERS
Flat rack shipping containers are similar to standard shipping containers as they are used to store and transport goods and come in standard 20ft and 40ft lengths, but their basic structure is very different. They have open sides and no roof, and collapsible ends (although fixed ends types are also manufactured).
What are flat rack shipping containers used for?Flat racks are commonly used for transporting (especially for export) bulky and oversized cargo, such as
- Heavy machinery
- Large industrial parts
- Drums and barrels
Highly durable and cost effectiveLike all other shipping containers, flat racks are built to withstand heavy loads and harsh conditions, therefore are made of high quality weather proof steel and heavy duty, marine timber flooring. They are interlocking and empty can be stacked together and shipped back as a single cargo container, which lowers transportation costs significantly if you are buying them for more than one trip.
