Open Tops

The open top containers are very similar to the common containers, but due to transportation needs, the upper part can be uncovered, covered with a flexible element or be removable depending on the model. They can also have other removable elements to facilitate handling. Its use is indicated in the loading of materials that require a crane for its introduction into the container. They are also used in the transport of bulk minerals.

The open top container is usually used in maritime transport to export or import two types of merchandise:

  • Merchandise that does not fit because it is too height (machinery for example).
  • Merchandise that is very heavy and difficult to load dragging it, and needs to be loaded by a specific crane.
