Open Top Container FAQs

Open top containers are very similar to typical 20- and 40 -foot shipping containers, but replace a typical solid roof with a

  • Timber
  • Construction supplies & equipment


    Scrap metal


    Tractor tires


    Large engines and turbine parts


    Rail parts & equipment

Although neither has a top, open top containers have all four sides, unlike flat rack containers, which only have two. Open top containers also tend to use heavy-duty tarps to provide wind and rain protection for container contents.
