Platform flat containers offer high loading capacity for odd sized, heavy cargo
and large machinery. As the name suggests, they are essentially a heavy duty
steel reinforced container platform.
Available in 20ft and 40ft lengths and in both new and used condition.
NEW (1 TRIP) PLATORM FLAT CONTAINERS
20ft and 40ft platform flat containers do not have any sides, ends or roof. They are just the ‘floor’ part of a shipping container. Manufactured using extremely heavy duty ISO regulated marine grade steel, they are used globally to transport very heavy machinery, awkward/ oversized cargo and other large, bulky freight which cannot physically go inside a shipping container. They are also known as ‘bolster’
Boxtor builds its very own new platform flat containers when we have order requirements to do so. These special container types are manufactured to the highest ISO regulations and have the following industry leading specification:
