10FT Original Open Top Container
Open top containers do not have the conventional steel corrugated container roof. Instead, they have removable bows and a weatherproof tarpaulin which can be secured with ropes. This significantly simplifies the loading and unloading process which is usually done by a crane from above. The door header (above the door) can also be swung round / removed to allow easy access for the cargo.
The original 10ft open top container is suitable for the transport of products of an extraordinary size. For example, larger machines or equipment. The container is suitable for loads with a flexible height, in addition, the handling can be done with a crane or a forklift truck. The container can be sealed with a tarpaulin on the top.
Open top containers are ideal for the movement of machinery. The container must be shipped with the bows and tarpaulin which also provide some strength. If the machinery is over height then usually you will need to use a flat rack container that has no roof at all. Lashing rings are provided for securing the load during transport.

Excellent for worksites because it can quickly secure oversize machinery and equipment, permits fast loading via a crane or forklift through its door or roof, and is easy to move and store.
Roof options –
- Soft top: The roof is made from tarpaulin and is supported by removable steel roof bows and a swing header. This is the best option for oversize items
- Hardtop: The steel roof is often preferred by manufacturers who use Open Tops for their fast loading times and want the protection a rigid roof provides
The rest of the structure is constructed with high tensile corrugated steel and protected with rust-resistant paint so it can withstand Australia’s harsh conditions.

Even more handy with its top-loading option
A handy, easy to transport multi-purpose container made even more flexible thanks to its removable roof which provides an additional loading point. Once either the soft top or hard top roof is open, loading and unloading can be done efficiently using a crane or forklift. These containers provide a necessary transport and storage option in instances where oversized items are too tall for a High Cube container, or rigid side walls are required for the increased security they offer over a Flat Rack container.
Open Top Shipping Containers
Our open-top containers are a specialized shipping option, ideal for particularly large cargo, or items that are difficult to load in from the side.
Flexible Loading and Shipping
Manufactured to the same specification as our standard shipping containers, our open-top range has had the metal roof removed from the container, replaced with a tarp roof instead. This gives you complete flexibility when it comes to loading cargo.
They are available in 20ft and 40ft lengths, so are suitable for most types of shipping and storage, as well as for bespoke purposes. Wind and watertight, they are designed to protect against weather damage, and multiple lashing points make transportation simple.

Open Top Container Applications
The nature of the open-top container means it’s ideal for loading particularly big or bulky cargo, or for items that have additional height. We recommend choosing this type of container if you are transporting seeds, grains, stone, or timber, as these items can be loaded in easily from the top.
