Product Description

If you need a solution that is perfect for loading and unloading large and lengthy cargo, you may consider 40ft open top containers from Pelican Containers.

An open top 40ft container is ideal for items like metal tubes, beams, gensets, and storage tanks due to its open-top design and crane compatibility.

We’ve made sure your cargo stays safe to withstand knocks and other external factors that could damage it. The strong timber lining on the entire floor serves as a barrier that protects your massive load from the solid metal floor. It also helps keep your cargo securely in place, preventing any slippage.

Accessibility is important for a 40ft open top container. It has a detachable tarpaulin and roof bows, as well as a swinging header for effortless loading and unloading.

Worried about condensation or “cargo sweat”? Unlike other containers with limited ventilation, ours are equipped with multiple ventilation chutes to eliminate condensation and effectively control temperature.

40 open top containers also have multiple lashing points placed strategically to keep your cargo secure and avoid excessive movements.

And let’s not forget about standards. 40ft open top containers are created, constructed, and accredited to meet ISO, TIR, UIC, CSC, and ABS approvals. You get a container that meets global quality and safety standards.

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!
