Product Description

The 40ft flat rack container from Pelican Containers is your godsend if you need a solution that can handle the heaviest of loads and the bulkiest of items — the stuff that other containers shy away from.

Imagine a container that can be loaded from the top and the sides, one that’s made from solid Corten steel, famous for its sturdy corrosion resistance, and can transport weighty loads. That’s what you get with the 40-foot flat rack container. It’s perfect for carrying items like trucks, construction equipment, or other oversized cargo. A 40′ flat rack also has hinged front and back panels that fold down to create a flat base for your equipment.

One great feature of this container type is how effortless loading becomes. No side walls or roof means you can pack in cargo that’s wider and taller than what standard closed containers can handle. However, because it’s open, your cargo could be exposed to sun, rain, or wind.

But no need to worry, your cargo’s safety is guaranteed. The 40-foot flat rack container has loads of lashing points and a high-security lockbox to keep everything secure, as well as the solid marine-grade timber floor, which provides a rock-solid foundation for your items.

How is this container delivered?

Tilt Tray

Tilt tray delivers a container off the back of the truck. Similar to a tow truck, the tray is mechanically lowered at an angle, and the container is slid off, with the truck moving forward at slow speed. This is the most common delivery method used for containers. Tilt trays are not suitable for sites with overhead power lines as the container height increases significantly when tilted.

Side Loader

Side loaders are used to transport our 20 foot and 40 foot shipping containers. This is the best delivery method for containers at sites that have limited space either in front or behind the area where the container is to be positioned. The container is unloaded between the two outrigger feet of the side loader, approximately half a metre from the side of the truck.

Hiab Crane

Hiab cranes lift containers from a mechanism located behind the truck’s cabin. This is used when there is limited space for a side loader or tilt tray. Using a crane means the container is easily positioned at an angle or up on a raised area. It can also be used to place containers over a fence or other obstacles.

Pelican Containers are an amazing company to work with! From the sales rep to the delivery driver, they all worked with a very high level of integrity. This America based business answered the phone when we called, they checked up and followed through with all our requests. We had daily communication with the sales rep during the purchase process. When the driver was on his way with our delivery, and he knew that he was running behind, he called to let us know a more exact time he would arrive. He was easy to work with and was not in a hurry to off load the containers. He was thorough with the placement of the containers, making sure that they were where we wanted them. We will do business with this company again!
