FLAT RACK SHIPPING CONTAINER
Flat rack containers are used for the transportation of cargo with awkward or
unique dimensions which means it cannot be placed inside a standard
shipping container. They come in two sizes; 20ft flat rack container and 40ft
flat rack container. Both sizes come with either collapsible or fixed ends (both
types available). These are rare bits of kit, therefore stock levels are subject to
availability. Available in both NEW and USED condition and from our London & Birmingham depots.
20FT/ 40FT FLAT RACK CONTAINERS
Flat rack containers do not have side walls and NO roof. They are a great option to transport awkward or oversized cargo around the world. Unlike standard containers, these special units can be loaded by a crane. This allows for abnormally large loads to be shipped on them. To keep the cargo secure
on the ‘deck’, lashing rings are used to strap the cargo down using cargo straps or chains, which are securely fastened to the corner posts and ‘deck’ of the flat rack.
USED FLAT RACKS
USED Flat racks are the most commonly available type. Make no mistake, these are very rare bits of kit. There is very little availability of this unit type in Europe and the UK. All our used flat racks are fully inspected and come with a minimum of 12
months validity on the CSC plate.
NEW FLAT RACKS
We can manufacture our very own new build 20ft and 40ft flat racks at the factory in China. We only build these ‘specials’ when we get a firm order so please do get in touch with our team to speak about your requirements.

PRIMARY USES – FLAT RACK CONTAINES
Ideal for transporting bulky/ awkward sized cargo, our 20ft and 40ft flat rack shipping containers can be loaded from the top with a crane. Cargo is securely strapped down using chains/ straps to the ‘deck’ of the unit. With an increased payload capability of 30 tonnes (20ft FR) and 40 tonnes (40ft FR), this unit type can accommodate much heavier cargo loads than standard shipping containers. Large pipework, machinery, boats and heavy plant equipment are just a few examples of what flat racks can be used for. Enquire today for a quick quote if you require a flat rack container!
