These containers have a solid base and 2 walls that give it the appearance of a rack, which gives the container its rather unique name.
TYPES OF IT
There are 2 main types of flat rack containers based on their design and support:
1. Collapsible flat rack
2. Non-collapsible flat rack
The collapsible flat rack has walls at either end that can be flattened down when not in use. For this, they can either be detached or folded down.
Non-collapsible flat racks have solid walls that cannot be removed. They are much stronger and structurally stiffer than collapsible variants.
The goods stored can extend both along the transverse and upwards and can have a volume much larger.
A 40' container has an internal length and width of 12.03m and 2.35m respectively, and has a payload capacity of 40,000kg.
CARGO AND GOODS
Common types of cargo shipped through these containers include machinery, factory parts, heavy industry components, etc.
